Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth has become the Yakuza series’ fastest-selling game to date, passing one million units sold within its first week on sale.
Publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are celebrating by giving players some free downloadable content too. The Celebratory T-Shirt Set will be released “at a later date”, with Sega advising fans pay attention to its social media channels to learn when the pack will be available.
It’s also unclear what the pack entails, but Infinite Wealth leans into the ability to change characters’ outfits in battle, and goes even further in the post game, so Ichiban, Kiryu, and the team will likely be able to don a ridiculous looking t-shirt in battle and elsewhere.
Infinite Wealth arrived January 26 as the eighth mainline entry in the Yakuza (renamed Like a Dragon) series, but as a direct sequel to its somewhat reset Yakuza: Like a Dragon. It continues that game’s story and turn-based combat, though brought in some classic Yakuza influence by featuring longtime protagonist Kiryu alongside newcomer Ichiban in dual protagonist roles.
It also features the Yakuza series’ biggest map to date, lets players become a samurai, surfer, and housekeeper, features the series’ most infamous character, and has an entire Pokémon game inside it.
Publisher Sega has caused some frustration, however, as Infinite Wealth’s New Game Plus mode is exclusive to the Deluxe and Ultimate versions of the game, which come in at $15 and $40 more expensive respectfully.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “Sprawling, enthralling, and packed with dynamic brawling, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth isn’t just the best turn-based Like a Dragon game, it’s one of the greatest games in the entire series.”
