Sega has some great news for Xbox Game Pass members! They’re adding two games from their Like a Dragon series to the service. Like a Dragon games are well-known for their exciting stories and different ways to play, and they have fans all around the world who can’t wait for each new game.
In September 2023, Xbox announced its Game Pass lineup. But there’s even more exciting news from the Tokyo Game Show – Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, the creators of the Like a Dragon series, revealed something special for Game Pass subscribers.
Sega’s games, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name and Like a Dragon: Ishin, will be coming to Xbox Game Pass later this year. The director of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Masayoshi Yokoyama, confirmed this news during Xbox’s Tokyo Game Show broadcast.
Dragon Gaiden is set to release on November 9, 2023, and will be available on Game Pass for both consoles and PCs right from the start. On the other hand, Like a Dragon: Ishin, which came out earlier in 2023, will also be added to Game Pass for consoles and PCs later this year, although the exact date hasn’t been announced yet.
This announcement comes right after the studio showed a new story trailer for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

It’s set to come out in 2024, and the trailer had some really surprising twists for the main character, Kazuma Kiryu. With Infinite Wealth on the way and the games Gaiden and Ishin being added to Game Pass, it’s clear that the studio has big plans for the future of the franchise.
The decision to bring back Kazuma Kiryu in the main role makes a lot of sense, as the producer of the series pointed out. Fans love the character, and this move will make both Game Pass subscribers and Like a Dragon fans happy.
In the latest previews of Like a Dragon Gaiden, they showed that you can customize Kiryu’s disguises a lot as he goes undercover in his new adventure. This could become a regular feature in future games, showing Sega’s commitment to making gameplay more interesting.
With Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass offering day-one access to Like a Dragon Gaiden, Sega can reach more potential fans, and Xbox Game Pass remains a must-have service for gamers.
