In two months, Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth will come out and fans are delighted to play the demo version of the game on their consoles. But many players such as myself have wondered what makes this game different from its predecessor. Recently, SEGA released new info about how the combat mechanics differ from its predecessor including new jobs that Kasuga and his group can use.

In Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth, players will experience a more improved and challenging combat system where players can attack enemies within certain ranges and conditions. With more dynamic and miraculously wealthy combat gameplay, players will learn what to expect on the release of the game below:

Character Movement During Combat

During combat, players can now move freely within a certain range. The closer they are to their opponents, the greater the damage they inflict on them. As they level up, their range increases and they are given a huge advantage in deciding on how they will attack their opponents.

AOE Attacks

In the previous game, some skills allowed players to perform area of attacks. But at the same time, it was hard to use them as most of the enemies being targeted were moving constantly. Now in this new game, players can obliterate enemies in a straight line or within a circle.

Improved Knockback Attacks

We can never forget the fact that there are more sufficient and complex knockback attacks. When enemies are damaged and hit by walls and other objects, they receive significant damage. For example, when an opponent hits a canister upon being knocked out, the canister explodes and deals a ton of damage to him.

Combo Attacks With Allies

Single attacks don’t usually work against certain enemies but in Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth, players can team up with their allies and perform combo attacks if they are within range of their allies. Doing combo attacks will not only do damage against tougher enemies but also, deepen the bonds or relationships.

Courageous And Enhanced Perfect Attacks

Perfect Attacks have been improved greatly and when performing special attacks, players must click on the right button to deal an extensive and enhanced perfect attack. Doing so will damage enemies greatly.


When encountering weaker enemies, players can perform a new feature called SMACKDOWN. Choosing this option will end the battle quickly with less EXP. This feature is great to use when farming money or items.
