Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is Steam Deck Verified ahead of release

By - | Views: 32,853

Fantastic news for Like a Dragon fans as the latest in the series Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth has been checked over and confirmed Steam Deck Verified by Valve ahead of the release.

It will arrive on January 25th, and the previews coming in from elsewhere have been pretty glowing, so it's good to see another major upcoming release that will work great on Steam Deck (and so Linux desktop too!). Valve gave it the Verified rating with the current Proton 8.0-4.

Confession time: I've not played any of the Like a Dragon games or the Yakuza games either. Am I really missing out on something here? If I were to start - where do I pick it up from?

The previous main game - Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a good starting point. New protagonist and the new JRPG style combat, plus it runs well on Steam Deck. Alternatively, try Yakuza Zero, which is older but chronologically the first game (again, Deck verified).

I started playing the series last summer with Y0 and fell head over heels for it. My goal was to try and get through the series in time for this release but I've learned how laughable that idea was. Should give it some time to get it some post launch patches by that time at least.

I've loved this series from the beginning on the PS2. While I stick to PlayStation with these games. I'm glad that others get to enjoy them too. Though I can't stand these English dubs, but at least they aren't as bad as the first game on the PS2. lol

I might despise the actual Yakuza in real life. But Kiryū Kazuma is an absolute badass. 💪
Quoting: GuestAlso how can you despise Yakuza...
So, after the Fukushima thing, the Yakuza teamed up with the company that owned the reactors to force people they were loansharking to go work at reactor cleanup even though it was a death sentence. Then when they got sick from the radiation, they were laid off so they could go die at home and nobody would record it as having anything to do with work at a reactor. So yeah, that's one thing that might cause a person to despise the Yakuza. As well as nuclear reactor companies.

Meanwhile the Yakuza where launching relief efforts (that the government didn't) when the Earthquake hit Japan in 2011

If you told me Robert Pickton gave lots of money to charity in between his rapes and murders, it would not really make me say "Oh, I guess he's not so bad on balance".

Looking forward to this one when I can finally stop replaying Yakuza 0

That's just more of the same sort of rhetoric some people used to defend the mafia organizations in Italy and the US. And the triads as well I think. "They took care of their communities." You know, when they weren't doing vicious crime syndicate stuff.

The Yakuza are seen as this romanticized comic book version of the brutal murderers and criminals they actually are. But hey, these games look pretty entertaining.

They do look entertaining. And I myself sometimes enjoy a nice "Rough-hewn but honourable Yakuza guy does improbably noble things while taking care of an orphan girl" manga. I don't confuse it with real life though.

Which is nice, but I refuse to buy a Denuvo infested game. Heck, even the previous one still has Denuvo today.

Love how the comments section on this article turned into an "are yakuza nice people?" discussion.
