Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is slated for release on January 26, 2024. (Available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, and Steam).

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is a dramatic RPG that depicts the series’ most compelling tale to date. Two beloved characters take the spotlight as dual protagonists in this adventure—Ichiban Kasuga, a man who rises from rock bottom once again, and Kazuma Kiryu, who faces one final battle as he enters his twilight years.

Experience one-of-a-kind combat with dynamic, fast-paced RPG battles where the battlefield becomes your weapon, and anything goes. With a plethora of new jobs, more in-depth customization, and plenty of ways to develop your characters. Battles have evolved into New Live Command RPG Battles with even more strategic elements. You can create the strongest party by adding new jobs, extensive customization, and training elements.


What is the Bucket List?

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth features unique side stories for its dual protagonists, Ichiban Kasuga and Kazuma Kiryu. The Bucket List serves as Kiryu’s exclusive side story.

Ichiban Kasuga, who is no stranger to crawling up from rock bottom, will find himself turning Dondoko Island from a scrap heap to a five-star resort. In contrast, Kazuma Kiryu, a broken man facing his last days, will have to complete his bucket list.



Kiryu reveals to his companions that his days are numbered. His friends suggest that he create a bucket list to find closure and make the most of what time he has left.



The Bucket List contains a list of Kiryu’s lifelong wishes and loose ends he must tie up before his life comes to an end.

These appear in the form of Life Links, a series of episodes that shed light on what Kiryu’s former companions are up to now; Memoirs of a Dragon, a chance for Kiryu to reminisce by visiting places from his past; and Unfinished Business, a collection of loose ends that appear as missions which Kiryu must tend to.

Kiryu’s exclusive Soul, Tech, and Body parameters will increase as he checks off more items on his bucket list. Raising Kiryu’s Awakening level will strengthen each aspect of his iconic Dragon of Doijima fighting style. Tying up Kiryu’s loose ends will bring him closer to his peak physical condition.


Life Links

A series of episodes that provide a glimpse into the present lives of Kiryu’s old friends, providing a chance for reflection. Kiryu’s fateful reunion with Date serves as a catalyst for Life Links—some of which involve Date’s scheming and conniving.

Throughout his journey, Kiryu has crossed paths with numerous people and profoundly impacted their lives—just as they have played a significant role in shaping who he is today. What will Kiryu glean from the lives of his old acquaintances?


Some characters can assist in combat as Poundmates after reaching a certain point in their story.


Memoirs of a Dragon

An exploration mode where Kiryu can reconnect with his past by revisiting familiar locations in Kamurocho and Isezaki Ijincho.

Memoirs of a Dragon allows Kiryu to relive his memories and spur his reawakening.


Unfinished Business

A collection of loose ends that Kiryu must tend to. These can range from eating at a restaurant, singing karaoke, or laying the beatdown on some enemies. Completing them will increase Kiryu’s Awakening.

Unfinished Business plays a pivotal role in Kiryu’s growth and progress in Life Links, so be sure to devote some time to it.
