Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be a launch title for the Xbox Series X, Microsoft revealed Thursday. The game will be one of the first to support the new Smart Delivery feature, entitling players to the Series X version of any games they buy on Xbox One.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, published by Sega, is the eighth game in the mainline Yakuza series. In it, players take on the role of Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking member of the crime syndicate that ultimately betrays him, setting him on the path to revenge with his trusty magic baseball bat in tow.

The trailer debuted during the Inside Xbox broadcast shows that baseball bat is just the tip of the iceberg for the game's weirdness. Giant lobsters, occult magic, and satellite lasers all appear in the trailer.

Although no official release date has been set, Yakuza: Like a Dragon will arrive alongside the Xbox Series X in the 2020 holiday season. Players can currently preorder the game on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox, and Windows 10.
