Video game adaptations are seeing success as of late. Amazon Prime gave us Fallout which was a huge hit. It even boosted the sales of older Fallout games. Before that, we saw HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us. We’ve also seen Twisted Metal successfully make its way into a streaming service. Not only for television, there is news of Just Cause and Fort Solis being turned into movies. Now we have news of another franchise being adapted for the small screen. Amazon Prime Video hopes to follow in the footsteps of Fallout with a Yakuza Like a Dragon TV show. This can be shown in the post on Twitter/X below.
