Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is ready to share more info on its upcoming slate of games. The Like a Dragon developer has announced it will be hosting a new studio show, the RGG Summit Summer 2023, on June 15.

The show will go live at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET on June 15, on both the Sega YouTube and Twitch channels. No word yet on how long the stream will be.

As for what they’ll have in store, it sounds like a few updates. Via a press release, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio plans on sharing updates about upcoming titles, as well as community efforts and developer discussions.

The future of Like a Dragon

We already have some inkling of what’s in store for the Like a Dragon series, or Yakuza as those in the west previously knew it. Last year, RGG Studio confirmed that Like a Dragon 8 is in development, with a 2024 target. Both Kazuma Kiryu and Ichiban Kasuga are set to play leading roles in the game, too.

Meanwhile, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name looks to be a side-story telling the story of what happened to Kiryu in-between the past games and new. While he made an appearance in Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Like a Dragon 7), there are still some gaps to fill between the end of the sixth game and the upcoming eighth entry. It’s currently aiming for a 2023 launch, too.

We also got the remaster of Like a Dragon: Ishin! earlier this year, a solid historical brawler that finally brought the tale to the west. There’s certainly some games for RGG to show off at this showcase, amid all the hubbub of June’s gaming news. We’ll see what RGG is planning for the future on June 15.
