We previously learned last month that the Japanese release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon will add New Game+ features through a paid DLC pack. Today, Sega has published more details about this DLC. The pack shall be now known as Premium Masters Pack, with the New Game+ feature getting the name Premium New Game in this ambitious RPG.
This paid DLC pack will be sold in Japan from April 9, but there is a catch to it: For a limited time until May 6, the Premium Masters Pack will be sold at just 7 yen; that's approximately just seven cents in US dollars. After the period has ended, it will then be sold at its regular price of 980 yen (approx. $8.80) from May 7 onwards.
Other than the Premium New Game feature, this DLC pack will also add even more content into Yakuza: Like a Dragon such as a new set of trophies, a very hard dungeon, job rank cap increase, a special costume for each party member, and more. You can find more details on the new DLC below.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon has been available in Japan and East Asia as Ryu ga Gotoku 7 for PlayStation 4 since January 16. The Western localization is currently slated for release later within 2020.
