Learn how many chapters there are in Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Want to know how many chapters there are in Yakuza: Like a Dragon? Ichiban's tale in Yakuza: Like a Dragon is rather long, so you might be wondering how many chapters there are in total. Since Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new protagonist to the series, there are many hours of fighting thugs and watching cutscenes to fill you in on this new story. It's worth the time investment, though, as Ichiban will become the main protagonist of the Yakuza franchise moving forward.

In this guide, we'll break down how many chapters there are in Yakuza: Like a Dragon and how long it will take to beat the game.

How many chapters are there in Yakuza: Like A Dragon?

Yakuza: Like A Dragon has 15 chapters in total and you'll find them all listed below. From my experience, if you're playing casually most chapters can last you a few hours.

  • Chapter 1: Light & Shadow
  • Chapter 2: A Bloody Reunion
  • Chapter 3: The Town at Rock Bottom
  • Chapter 4: The Dragon of Yokohama
  • Chapter 5: The Liumang Man
  • Chapter 6: Ignition
  • Chapter 7: The Spider's Web
  • Chapter 8: Bleached Black
  • Chapter 9: A House of Cards
  • Chapter 10: Justice Tempered by Mercy
  • Chapter 11: The Odds
  • Chapter 12: The End of the Yakuza
  • Chapter 13: Coin Locker Baby
  • Chapter 14: Passing the Torch
  • Chapter 15: To the Pinnacle

It's also worth noting that you should heed cues like "Let us know when you're ready to go". This is basically Yakuza: Like A Dragon letting you know that the next sequence is going to be a biggun', and you won't be able to get involved in substories, minigames, and the like for a while. Bear this in mind if you want to mop up everything the map has to offer before progressing the story, or if you just need to stock up on some goods before diving into the inevitable chapter-ending boss fight.

How long does Yakuza: Like a Dragon take to beat?

If you're absolutely determined to power through, you can beat the game in around 35-40 hours. But if you're someone who wants to soak in all the sights, complete all the substories, and generally tick off everything, it'll last you well over 50 hours or more.
