How long is Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth?

Longer than a dragon’s tail.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is here, and it’s another RPG from RGG Studio. Given how lengthy its predecessor could be for some players, it’s fair to ask how long Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth could be.

Of course, this question is a bit complicated. While reaching the end credits is one thing, Yakuza / Like a Dragon games are well-known for their lengthy, expansive side content offerings. So depending on how much time you want to spend on the fringes of Hawaii’s nightlife, you might tally up a pretty high hour count.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth game length, explained

Depending on how fast you run through the main story, the main game of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will take the average person anywhere from 45 to 55 hours to beat. My own time clocked in on the high side of that bar. There are 15 chapters in total, with 14 numbered chapters and then a finale.

Granted, I did a fair number of substories and side content, including a couple hours spent perusing the in-game dating app, building up my Dondoko Island resort, and collecting Sujimon. If you were to bee-line it for the end, not stopping along the way, I could see a run as short as 40 hours.

Still, you’ll need experience from battles and other helpful stats to get you there. Considering how tough some of the boss fights can be near the end of the game, you’ll want all the help you can get. So I’d really recommend slowing down and taking your time with this RPG adventure.

What to spend your hours on in Infinite Wealth

For those looking to make a straight run to the finish, I at least recommend completing the dungeon quest lines, in both Hawaii and Ijincho. These net you some seriously good gear, plenty of crafting materials for making better weapons, and a wealth of EXP.

Spending a little bit of time in the Vocational School is helpful too, as it boosts Ichiban’s Hero moves and also opens up more jobs to assign to characters. Plus, I’d make sure to do a few substories, especially ones that unlock new Poundmates. These summons can be lifesavers, especially if you’re trying to speed through the story.

It’s ultimately up to you on how much time you want to spend with Ichiban and the crew. There’s certainly no shortage of content. With Premium Adventure around too, it’s easy to get lost in this world and forget there’s a main story at all.
