Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the eighth entry in the mainline Yakuza series, and an upcoming launch title for the Xbox Series X. For those who have played it, the Yakuza series needs no introduction, as it’s been a consistently entertaining crime adventure ever since its debut on the PS2. While the series has always toyed with RPG elements, Like a Dragon is the first game in the franchise to fully embrace a traditional turn-based battle system.

While Yakuza: Like a Dragon has been out in Japan for months, it won’t get a Western release until fairly late this year. If you want to import a copy, you can do so, but be warned that it won’t have English subtitles. As such, unless you speak Japanese, it’s probably better to wait until the game launches with an official translation. Here’s what you’ll need to know until then.

In one respect, Yakuza: Like a Dragon already had a very firm release date: January 16. Of course that’s when the game came out in Japan, which doesn’t do much good for Western fans.
