The simple answer to whether or not Kiryu is in Yakuza: Like a Dragon is “yes.” However, his appearance is more than just a cameo. His story actually gets a bit of a continuation.

Kiryu shows up during Chapter 12: The End of the Yakuza and Chapter 14: Passing the Torch. Due to the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Kiryu must keep his identity a secret, and no one refers to him by his name. However, the Dragon of Dojima’s presence is unmistakable. As a bonus, he also becomes a Poundmate at the conclusion of Chapter 14.

Is Goro Majima in Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Again, the simple answer to whether or not Majima is in Yakuza: Like a Dragon is “yes.” Goro Majima and Saejima Taiga are bosses in Chapter 12. The two are guarding the inner sanctum of the Omi Alliance HQ and must be defeated to progress in the game.

The two blood brothers are as tight as ever and are in their prime. In fact, for most players, the fight with the two will be the hardest in the game. Fortunately, after the battle, Majima and Saejima learn that Ichiban and party aren’t there to harm Arakawa.

Both Majima and Saejima become Poundmates at the end of chapter 12 and are two of the strongest in the game.
