SEGA’s IPs are rising in popularity everyday in a creative renaissance not seen since the days of the Dreamcast. 1 Million units of ‘Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth’ sold in just 7 days.
The company has rapidly grown their adult and teenage gaming market share through the ‘Yakuza’ and ‘Persona’ IPs along with Sonic for everyone. Imagine if they went exclusive…
Early impressions by The Natural Aristocrat® of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth during a play-through is that it’s excellent. Simply top shelf material like the original Yakuza: Like A Dragon. SEGA is just on a roll, and with ‘it’.
The Yakuza game series is not only fun, like an open world arcade game (even as an action RPG) but the storylines feel current and alive. They never insult your intelligence. You never feel inundated with endless menial tasks before you can have fun like a lot of modern gaming’s fetch quests. You can spend all day at the virtual arcade playing Spikeout even if you wanted to.
We’ll have an in-depth review for you in the future but for now here’s SEGA’s statement on Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth’s surging success. As well as a promised free virtual in-game T-shirt.
