Ishin will be showing some unexpected celebrity cameos
“I think the only way to eclipse this would be if RGG had me in a bikini in one of the phone cards.”
Like a dragon: Ishin! has unveiled a new gameplay mechanic coming to the title, and it allows for some celebrity cameos that no one would have anticipated.
A January 26 press release from Sega announced that the upcoming remake would feature a game mechanic called Trooper Cards. Through these, players can unleash special abilities and otherwise boost their stats in battle, giving them an edge in more difficult and precarious situations. These Trooper maps are available as free DLC and will be available to download as early as February 17th for those who have purchased the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition.
That’s all well and good, but these Trooper cards serve another purpose: they enable cameos by celebrities who are big fans of Ryu Ga Gotoku’s games. The first two of those cameos were AEW pro wrestler Kenny Omega and acclaimed actor Rahul Kohli, with four more set to be revealed in the coming weeks ahead of the game’s release.
“Designing trooper cards for Kenny and Rahul, who are ardent fans of the Like a dragon series, was a really fun and fulfilling experience. We’ve worked with each of them individually to create their one-of-a-kind, personalized card, allowing them to let their creativity run free. We were thrilled with the results and we think players will be too.” Like a Dragon: Ishin! That’s what chief producer Hiroyuki Sakamoto says in the press release.
The announcement was accompanied by two videos showing Kenny Omega and Rahul Kohli reacting to and commenting on their inclusion in the game. Both speak of their long-held love for both gaming and the Ryu Ga Gotoku games, as well as their excitement at being included in the latest entry in the series.

Like a dragon: Ishin! is scheduled for release on February 21st on PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles and PC. Those who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition can play the game even earlier on February 17th through an Early Access period. For more information on the game, see the related articles below.
