Yakuza’s Cabaret Minigame Will Return In Like A Dragon Gaiden

Over the franchise's history, Yakuza/Like A Dragon has had plenty of silly minigames to get hopelessly distracted by. In Yakuza: Like A Dragon alone there's a kart racing game that features actual miniguns and a business management minigame that is far more interesting and entertaining than it sounds. However, none have managed to draw in players more than the Cabaret Club minigames seen in Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami 2.

It hasn't made an appearance since then, but that looks like it's about to change, as developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has confirmed the minigame will feature in Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. We saw hints that Ryu Ga Gotoku was cooking up some kind of cabaret minigame for a future title earlier this month, as it announced a competition in which people could enter for the chance to appear in Like A Dragon Gaiden and Like A Dragon 8.

In case you missed the announcement, Like A Dragon Gaiden will bring back longtime series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. The title is being used to give players a look at what Kiryu got up to after the events of Yakuza 6 and before his reveal in Yakuza: Like A Dragon. We don't know much about what goes down, although it now seems like Kiryu at least had a bit of spare time to start running his own cabaret club on the side.

Before we get to Like A Dragon Gaiden, we actually have another game releasing pretty dang soon. Like A Dragon: Ishin! launches on February 21 next year and is a remake of Yakuza: Ishin! that released exclusively in Japan way back in 2014. The game features several iconic Yakuza characters, but the remake will introduce characters like Adachi, Zhao, and Joon-gi from Yakuza: Like A Dragon. If you want to know what we think of the game so far, you can read our preview here.
