Looks like the Limited Edition of Yakuza Like a Dragon is delayed until early December. While putting together the Artbook and dealing with COVID the team at Pix’nLove Publishing has added an extra 48 pages of art and interviews! The delay is only a couple of weeks and the wait sounds like it will be worth it for true fans of the series.
You can still preorder the Limited Edition of the game over here.
