12 long years have passed since the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, made his debut on PlayStation 2 in Yakuza, but it’s time to return to where it all started. Get ready to unleash the dragon, because the HD remake Yakuza Kiwami.
Yakuza Kiwami Features:
A Family Patriarch's Ransom of New Content - “Kiwami” literally translates to “extreme,” and the game was named that for good reason. Not just a simple graphical upgrade, Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game's plot and creating common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0. There's also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests, combat updates, re-recorded Japanese dialogue, and more to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
A Place for Newcomers and Veterans - Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate bridge in the series: newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
But it was me! Majima! - Completely new to Kiwami is the "Majima Everywhere" system, where the series' deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We're talking "popping out of a goofy costume" levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu's chief rival.
Extreme Revitalization - Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA's commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.

Just getting into this one but it’s an amazing full remake - yes remake, not remaster, which is incredible as it really brings it up to modern standards; and it’s way easier to play than on PS2. Starts slow, certainly not the best entry in the series - personally I think they really picked up from 4 and 0 set the modern benchmark. If you want to casually try this series out start with 0 then 6, if you’re a fan and thinking of replaying 1 or trying it for the first time get amongst it.
