Sega and Ryū ga Gotoku Studio have announced Like A Dragon: Ishin!. The upcoming historical drama spinoff of the Yakuza series is scheduled for release on February 21st for Windows through Steam, PS4 and PlayStation 5, and Xbox One and Series X|S consoles.

The period piece is a remastered port of Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin!, RGG Studio's second Japan-only foray into exploring the distant past. Redesigned utilizing Unreal Engine 4, Ishin! transposes the likeness of series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu onto the historical figure of Sakamoto Ryoma.

Ishin! is set in Kyo (a fictionalized representation of Kyoto) during the Bakumatsu Period of the mid-19th century. Sakamoto has been framed for the murder of his mentor, and takes on a false identity to evade capture, joining the military government's special police force with the intention of hunting down the killer.

The Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin! two-volume digital soundtrack album is streaming on YouTube Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music Unlimited. Music for the game is by Hidenori Shoji, Chihiro Aoki, Saori Yoshida, Keitaro Hanada, and Hyd Lunch.

From the product page:
1860s Kyo is plagued by widespread inequality, and one samurai will change the course of history in his search for justice. Take up the sword of Sakamoto Ryoma and venture to Kyoto to find your father’s killer, clear yourself of a framed murder, and restore your honor. In doing so, you will bring an end to the samurai era and forever change the future of Japan. Draw your blade, load your revolver, and join the revolution in this heated historical adventure that only the creators of Yakuza: Like a Dragon could produce.
