Yakuza (Japanese: 龍が如く Hepburn: Ryū ga Gotoku, lit. Like a Dragon) was originally released in 2005 and follows Kazuma Kiryu, a yakuza member who spent ten years in jail for a crime he did not commit. After being released, he learns that the criminal underworld is searching for 10 billion yen that has been stolen from the Tojo clan. He comes across an orphan named Haruka who is being targeted by the clan. She is believed to have the key to their lost money and Kiryu resolves to protect her. The game takes place in Kamurocho, a realistic recreation of Tokyo's Kabukicho district.
Yakuza 2 (Japanese: 龍が如く2 Hepburn: Ryū ga Gotoku 2, lit. Like a Dragon 2) was originally released in 2006 and focuses on the former yakuza Kazuma Kiryu who receives a request for help from his former group, the Tojo Clan, to keep relationships with the western group, the Omi Alliance, stable. Across Kiryu's journey he learns of a Korean mafia group linked with the Omi Alliance and becomes the rival of the Omi's "The Dragon of Kansai", Ryuji Goda.
