About this item

In 2005, a legend was born on the PlayStation 2 – the legend of Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, inhis video game debut with Yakuza. Now, 11 years after that release, a new generation of players will beable to experience the incomparable action and drama of the Yakuza series with the rebuilt-from-scratch HD remake exclusive to PlayStation 4, Yakuza Kiwami.

"Kiwami" means Extreme, and the game takes that concept to heart. It's not an HD-remaster or up-rezzing of PS2-era textures. Yakuza Kiwami was recreated from the ground up exclusively for thePlayStation 4. That means every visual element was optimized for the 1080p/60fps environment, everyline of the script was re-recorded by series actors and for the first time in the West, gamers will be ableto hear the original Japanese language track.

Then there's the game itself! The PS2-era brawling gameplay is refined for the current gen with KazumaKiryu fighting his way through the ranks of Yakuza, only to wind up protecting a young girl whose Aunt (and who happens to be Kiryu's childhood sweetheart) is missing...along with 10 billion yen.

Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game’s plot. There’s alsoadded distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side questsand combat updates to bring the original Yakuza game up to date.

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.

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 goofycostume” levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu’s chiefrival.

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.

The tone is set immediately, both the seriousness of the story and the humor of the overall game. You feel strong when fighting.
