Sega is finally bringing Like A Dragon Ishin from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio to global audiences and we can’t wait to get stuck into what is sure to be another fantastic action-adventure game from the series. If you’re looking forward to this and you’re a fan of the Yakuza game series, you might want to know about all the different Like A Dragon Ishin battle styles and fighting styles that will be available in-game.

While you’re checking out the newly-announced Like A Dragon Ishin release date right here, let’s go over what this game is all about. Like A Dragon Ishin is all about real-life revolutionary Sakamoto Ryoma, a man credited with a major role in overthrowing the shogunate and reforming Japan in the 19th century. This is the second spin-off game in the Like A Dragon series not set in the modern era, so even if you are a fan of the series, knowing about all the Like A Dragon Ishin battle styles and fighting styles is going to be important.

This game is all about action, as you’ll soon find out, but don’t expect Like A Dragon Ishin to skip out on all the fantastic storytelling, dialogue, and slick humour the series is known for. This is going to be one game you won’t want to miss out on, even if the Bakumatsu era of the Late Edo Period doesn’t strike you as particularly interesting – even though it really is.

Alright, let’s get stuck into it. In Like A Dragon Ishin, there’s going to be four fighting styles you can use in battle – they are:

  • Swordsman Style
  • Gunman Style
  • Wild Dancer Style
  • Brawler Style

Swordsman Style

At the moment, we don’t know too much about this fighting style other than it’s one that focuses on blades – as the name might suggest. If you want to tackle your enemies with something traditional, like a katana, this is going to be the best option for you.

Gunman Style

As you might imagine, this is a fighting style all about guns. You’re not going to find yourself being able to wield heavy armaments like a light machine gun or fully-automatic SMGS, but we’re expecting a decent selection of firearms to be available for those of you opting for this battle style.

Wild Dancer Style

This battle style balances use of blades and guns to create a spectacle of furious fighting you won’t want to miss out on. It’s clear that this is going to be the most adaptable option.

Brawler Style

Don’t care for weapons at all? This is the option for you. With this fighting style, you’ll be going toe to toe with your opponents bare-fisted. Expect this to be the most brutal battle style available in the game.

Well, that’s all there is to it – all the fighting styles and battle styles available in Like A Dragon Ishin. We will be sure to update this when more specifics are available, but know that this is going to be one of the best PS5 games and best Xbox games out there when it drops.
