It’s been over ten months since Yakuza: Like A Dragon was released in Japan, but the game is almost ready to hit consoles in the west — and a brand new “Next Generation of Yakuza” trailer released by Sega highlights the near instant load times the game has on the Xbox Series X.

Check out the trailer below and see how the next generation console brings things to life in a smooth and crisp way.

In case you missed the plot, here’s a summary of the story that introduces us to a new protagonist in the series:

Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, faces an 18-year prison sentence after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Never losing faith, he loyally serves his time and returns to society to discover that no one was waiting for him on the outside, and his clan has been destroyed by the man he respected most.

Ichiban sets out to discover the truth behind his family’s betrayal and take his life back, drawing a ragtag group of society’s outcasts to his side: Adachi, a rogue cop, Nanba, a homeless ex-nurse, and Saeko, a hostess on a mission. Together, they are drawn into a conflict brewing beneath the surface in Yokohama and must rise to become the heroes they never expected to be.
