How Long is Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth? Main Story Length & Completionist Run

For those focusing solely on the main storyline, Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth is set to be a marathon, not a sprint. Yokoyama’s comments hint at a story mode far exceeding the typical 45-50 hours in earlier games. You should brace yourself for a narrative journey that could easily stretch beyond 60 hours.

But for the completionists out there, Infinite Wealth promises even more. Side content, including the customizable Dondoko Island tropical resort, adds layers of depth and hours of additional gameplay. These elements could push the total gameplay time to over 100 hours, offering a truly expansive Yakuza experience.

The game’s turn-based mechanics, a shift from the traditional action combat of Yakuza, coupled with investigation elements, contribute to this extended playtime. These features add variety and depth, encouraging players to dive deeper into the game’s world.
