Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is not hitting the hovering heights of Palworld on Steam, but it surely has set a document inside its personal collection.
It is solely January and we have already had some fairly huge releases, with Palworld changing into a shock Steam smash hit promoting *checks Twitter to see what the newest ridiculous determine is* eight million copies on simply the PC retailer entrance alone in lower than six days. Whereas it is not promoting practically as a lot on Steam, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, which launched final week, can be doing very properly on Steam, having hit a concurrent participant rely peak of 46,161 over the weekend, a collection excessive (by way of SteamDB).
For comparability, final yr’s Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Title had a participant rely peak of 13,737 round when it was launched, which means Infinite Wealth is the preferred entry within the collection by an extended shot. Under that in third is Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the primary sport to introduce the collection’ present protagonist Ichiban Kasuga, at a peak of 9535. Secure to say, the collection has fairly clearly grown in recognition over the previous few years, on Steam particularly, as we’ve got no approach of realizing the way it’s carried out on consoles.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth launched final week to stellar critiques throughout the board, which incorporates our personal Mark’s evaluate. Whereas critics and followers alike are responding positively to the sport, there are some frustrations available too – many dislike how the sport handles DLC, like with the truth that new sport plus is locked behind a paywall. There’s additionally a variety of add-ons which simply increase your stats, which whereas not obligatory, has drawn some ire from followers over its existence in any respect.
Both approach, irritation or not, gamers are fairly clearly pleased with the sport, so it is not a lot of a shock that the sport is doing so properly on Steam. Although I do doubt it will catch as much as Palworld.
