One of the most beloved heroes Like a dragon series (formerly called “yakuza” in the West), undoubtedly Horo Majima, and today is his birthday.

Born on May 14, 1964, Shimano Mad Dog is now 59, and with the series taking place almost in real time, we have to say he’s definitely still in great shape.

Its success is not only due to the fact that it has been with us since the beginning, when the first yakuza game was released in 2005, but also his lovable personality is torn between over-the-top madness and a heart of gold hidden deep beneath a snake-print jacket and eyepatch.

Probably, it will not be far-fetched to say that Like a dragon The series wouldn’t be the same without Goro Majima, and he’s almost as relevant as the longtime hero Kazuma Kiryu.

To celebrate his birthday, Sega released a full length video that takes us through some of the most iconic moments of his “life” in the legendary world of the series.


I would be surprised if Horo Majma didn’t show up Like the Dragon Hayden: The Man Who Erased His Name which will take place later this year for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. It will mark the return of main character Kazuma Kiryu and show the events between them Yakuza 6: Song of Life and the next game Like a dragon 8, which will see Kiryu share the role of protagonist Yakuza: Like a dragon hero Ichiban Kasuga and will be released in 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Recently we have seen videos showing frame by frame of development and voice acting for Like a dragon 8. By the way, we recently saw the results audition for the role of the five hostesses of the cabaret club in Hayden, with one of the winners getting a corresponding role in 8. Popular Youtuber and Vtuber Kson was chosen among the winners.
