Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Story

The story of Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name sheds light on fan-favourite Kiryu’s antics following the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and provides a bridge to the upcoming Yakuza 8.

The game is set in the summer of 2018 and is centred around a Kiryu that has renounced the violent Yakuza life he led up until The Song of Life. Kiryu is set to play a key role in Yakuza 8 when it releases, so we can expect the story to leave on a cliffhanger to keep us interested until we can get our hands on the next full entry in the series.

That’s everything we know about the  Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name release date. You can read all about the other confirmed Yakuza game with our Like A Dragon 8 release date guide, which has all the latest information on the next mainline title.
