So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name bridges the gaps between Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, from the perspective of Kazuma Kiryu Taichi Suzuki Joryu.

Lost Judgment Leftovers

Given the insanely short turnover time for the game (allegedly as little as six months!), it shouldn't be surprising to learn that the game appears to have been built directly on top of their previous title, Lost Judgment.


While a handful of these were reused for the Coliseum, with the original codenames intact, some are not reused in any capacity, including player movesets:

  • E_HIG_BTL_SUD - Toru Higashi (enemy moveset)
  • E_KWN_BTL_SUD - Jin Kuwana
  • E_SAD_BTL_WPB - Kyoya Sadamoto
  • E_TSO_BTL_WPM - Tesso
  • P_KAI_BTL_KAC - Masaharu Kaito (Bruiser)
  • P_KAI_BTL_TEP - Masaharu Kaito (Tank)
  • P_YAG_BTL_EIS - Takayuki Yagami (Snake)
  • P_YAG_BTL_MAI - Takayuki Yagami (Crane)
  • P_YAG_BTL_SEN - Takayuki Yagami (Tiger)
