Released alongside Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Well, it’s earlier than I thought … could be a good thing or it might be a bad thing. We will have to wait and see.
Taken from WCCFTech … Microsoft’s upcoming next-gen console, the Xbox Series X, could possibly launch on October 23 alongside Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
We know that the Series X is arriving during the holiday season, but an exact release date has yet to be announced. Our guess is that the console will arrive somewhere in November, but with the possibility of Sony’s PS5 arriving this October, and based on a new listing for the recently announced Western release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon for the Series X, Microsoft’s Xbox Series X might very well release this October.
As announced during Microsoft’s special Inside Xbox episode last week, Yakuza: Like a Dragon launches on day one on the Xbox Series X. “Yakuza: Like a Dragon, an explosive new entry point in the acclaimed Yakuza series, will be releasing as a launch title on the next-gen Xbox Series X, with simultaneous releases on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC”, Microsoft’s official post on the Xbox Wire now reads.
“We’re also excited to announce that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will support Xbox Series X Smart Delivery immediately on release. That means if you’ve purchased the Xbox One version of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, you’ll be entitled to a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X console version. Cross-save functionality between Xbox One and Xbox Series X is also supported, so no matter when you decide to upgrade to Xbox Series X, you’ll never have to start over from scratch.”
