A TV series based on Sega‘s hit video game series Like A Dragon is set to arrive on Prime Video this October.

The show is directed by Take Masaharu (100 Yen Love, The Naked Director) and Takimoto Kengo (Kamen Teacher). It will focus on lead character Kiryu Kazuma, who will be portrayed by Kamen Rider actor Takeuchi Ryoma.

Per an IGN report, the series will be loosely based on the first Yakuza game from 2005. IGN also reports that the series will follow Kiryu and his childhood friends between two time periods: 1995 and 2005.
