Yakuza: Like a Dragon runs at 900p 60FPS on Xbox Series S

As part of a recent Xbox Series X/S live stream, it was confirmed that the Xbox Series X release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon would run at 1440p with a 60 FPS target and feature a higher resolution 4K 30 FPS mode for those who enjoy higher pixel counts. 

As part of this stream, it was also confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon would also operate at 1440p on Xbox Series S when using the game’s high-resolution mode, but target a lower resolution of 900p when targeting a smooth 60 FPS framerate. That’s right, 900p on an Xbox Series S. 

With the game’s combat moving toa turn-based system, Yakuza: Like A Dragon’s gameplay benefits a lot less from smooth 60 FPS framerates than older Yakuza titles. Even so, a lot of gamers are going to be disappointed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s performance on Xbox Series S.

Yakuza’s Dragon Engine is incredibly demanding, even on PC. Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s original Japanese PlayStation 4 release runs at 900p 30 FPS, while the game’s PlayStation 4 Pro version targets 1080p 30 FPS. It is also worth noting that Yakuza: Like a Dragon was designed for PlayStation 4, and therefore doesn’t take full advantage of the Xbox Series X/S’ hardware.

While some will see Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s 900p 60 FPS mode on Xbox Series S as a disappointment, it must be noted that last-generation systems cannot run the game at framerates over 30 FPS. If anything, delivering a 60 FPS mode is a win for Xbox Series X/S, even if it runs at a lower than desired resolution.
