Are you a fan of the Like a Dragon / Yakuza saga? If so, you might be interested in the latest installment, Like a Dragon: Ishin! This game offers a variety of sections, including plot-driven parts, side events, and non-mandatory modes. One such mode, Another Life, has become a fan-favorite, especially among those who love farming simulator games.
In Another Life, players can spend hours growing crops like carrots and ginseng, earning in-game currency (mon) and decorating their virtual home.
Plus, they can deepen their relationship with their adopted daughter and help stray dogs and cats by improving the kennels.
All of this takes place in the historical setting of Edo-era Japan, without any of the violence associated with the main story mode.

What makes Another Life so appealing to players? According to social media posts, many are surprised by the quality of this mode and find themselves immersed in the game for hours on end.
The narrative is engaging, and the mode provides a fun and relaxing way to enhance their character’s abilities and earn money. In fact, some players claim they have no desire to play any other mode!
Ishin is incredible. I keep getting distracted by side content. I didn't expect to like Another Life so much but I'm getting sucked in

The high level of appreciation for Another Life begs the question: will the Like a Dragon team decide to include this popular mode in future games of the saga?
Only time will tell. But for now, players can enjoy the satisfying and addictive experience of farming simulator gameplay in Like a Dragon: Ishin!’s Another Life mode.
