In addition to the pre-order bonuses, anyone who purchases Like A Dragon Gaiden will gain access to a demo for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. In Like A Dragon Gaiden, Kiryu, going by the codename Joyru, is forced to come out of hiding after a mission for the Daidoji faction doesn’t go to plan. Like A Dragon Gaiden takes place between Yakuza 6 and Yakuza: Like A Dragon.
Unlike Yakuza: Like A Dragon, Like A Dragon Gaiden returns to the real-time combat of previous titles. Kiryu has access to two combat styles; Agent and Yakuza. The former is focused on speed and precision while the latter is similar to Kiryu’s fighting style from previous games.

- Alex Kidd in Miracle World
- Alien Syndrome
- Enduro Racer
- Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa
