Yakuza fans desperate for more information on Lika a Dragon 8 could hear more at RGG Summit: Summer 2023, which Sega has announced will take place on June 15.
Revealed in a tweet (below), the showcase from Yakuza developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio will be available to stream at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern, meaning June 16 at 4am UK / 1pm AEST.
Sega has yet to reveal how fans can watch along but, as was the case last year, it will likely be streamed on its official Twitch channel.
Get ready for RGG Summit Summer 2023!

The publisher didn’t share any information on what fans can expect, though RGG Studio primarily focuses on the Yakuza franchise (which has been rebranded as Like a Dragon in the west) and it’s likely we’ll get an update there.
Last year’s event saw the full reveal of Like a Dragon 8, which confirmed the return of Kazuma Kiryu alongside an early 2024 release window. Not shy about sharing major updates at the RGG Summit, the developer also announced Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name as a spin-off coming in 2023.
Details are otherwise sparse on the next mainline entry, with RGG Studio more or less remaining quiet since last year’s event. The RGG Summit taking place in June could therefore be an ideal time to reveal more of the game, perhaps through a first look at gameplay or a solid release date.
