The Yakuza series will be called Like a Dragon going forward

Sega is officially killing off the Yakuza name and will call the series Like a Dragon going forward. That means 2020’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon will, ironically and appropriately, be the last game with Yakuza in the name. 

This follows on the announcement of Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name (opens in new tab) and a look at the Like a Dragon 8 trailer (opens in new tab) this week at Tokyo Games Show. The series had been called Yakuza in English releases since 2006.
