Retro Encounter 370 – Like A Dragon: Ishin! Part I

Retro Encounter 370 Like a Dragon: Ishin!

Kamurocho has nothing on the mean streets of 1860s Kyo. 

Ryu Ga Gotoku: Ishin! was probably a lost cause to most fans of the Like A Dragon / Yakuza series, but SEGA shocked everyone last year with the announcement of a full remake of the 2014 historical fiction samurai drama to arrive in February of 2023. RPGFan had at least four panelists eager to play it, so they gathered here to form their own Shinsengumi to discuss the swordplay, writing, performances, and historical context of the Like a Dragon: Ishin! remake. 

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Gio Castillo, Jono Logan, Nick Mangiaracina; Edited by Jono Logan

Opening and ending music by Miles Morkri
