Yakuza Like a Dragon Saves Won’t Transfer From PS4 to PS5
SEGA made some statements about the current PS4 version as well as announcing the Playstation 5 version of the game. Players who purchased Yakuza Like a Dragon physically for Playstation 4 will be able to play the game on Playstation 5. At this point, unfortunately, sad news came about the saves files. Yakuza developer RGG Studio has announced that Sony’s consoles won’t allow your saves to transfer between generations. According to the explanation, players won’t be able to transfer Yakuza Like a Drogon saves files from the PS4 to the PS5 version.
A similar statement was made for Marvel’s Spider-Man game before. Also, and the fact that the saves files could not be transferred to the new generation brought criticism. It seems that we will always encounter similar explanations about the saves files in transition games. In other words, it seems that we will have to restart these games while using the games we bought on Playstation 4 on Playstation 5. Finally, let’s remind you that Yakuza Like a Dragon will be released for PS5 in March 2021.
To clarify, physical owners of Yakuza: Like a Dragon on PS4 can also use the original disc to upgrade to the PS5 version when it releases on March 2, 2021.
Save data will not be transferable between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game.
