Like a Dragon: Ishin! Introduces Trooper Card Abilities

SEGA has released information about Trooper Cards in their upcoming title, Like a Dragon: Ishin!

In Like a Dragon: Ishin!, players can now use Trooper Card Abilities in the main story battles, giving them a massive advantage in combat. Trooper Cards have a variety of unique abilities, and some of them can enhance Ryoma’s strength through a buff-like effect, restore his health, allow him to activate powerful abilities, and much more.

Ryoma can assemble a squad of up to four troopers, with one being assigned the role of Corporal. A Squad and its Troopers must be linked to one of your combat styles. The way you fight will be heavily influenced by your Corporal and squad formation.

There is a diverse cast of troopers in the game, including familiar faces from the series, beloved characters from the more recent Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and even special appearances from the likes of Kenny Omega and Rahul Kohli.

Here are some of the trooper card abilities in the game:

  • Ishioda Denji – Essence of the Dimensional Blade
    Compresses heat into a blade and then unleashes it in a spinning area-of-effect (AoE) attack that
    damages nearby enemies.
  • Ryudo Rikiya – Essence of Explosive Impact
    This fierce technique explodes Heat around Ryoma, burning nearby foes while knocking them down.
    It’s a good way to create space when surrounded by many enemies.
  • Toranosuke – Essence of the Sovereign Tiger
    A powerful move that sets a ferocious tiger pouncing on the enemy, which damages them with its
    sharp fangs and flings them far away.
