Oh yes, you read correctly. The inaugural entry into the famed Yakuza series first shed light on the seedy underbelly of Japan and the organised crime that lurked there in 2006, all the way back on the Playstation 2. In the original Yakuza, players were first introduced to the “Dragon of Dojima”, Kazuma Kiryu, who takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss, only to emerge from prison ten years later to a completely changed world. In 2017, Yakuza Kiwami takes us back to the origin of the series, completely rebuilt for PS4 from the ground up.
Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)
You’ll find enhanced gameplay, expanded cinematic story, and battle styles from Yakuza 0 in Kiwami. In addition, the game now includes more nightlife spots and re-recorded audio presented in the original Japanese for the first time. Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate edition of the original vision of the series and will appeal to first-time players and long-time fans alike.
A benefit to digitally pre-ordering the game is a free PS4 theme featuring some familiar stone-faced Yakuza bros! What better way to represent the streets of Kamurocho than by having Kazuma Kiryu and Akira Nishikiyama hang out in the background of your PS4?
However, if you simply must have that physical copy, pre-orders and first-run copies of Yakuza Kiwami will come packaged in a stunning steelbook. Beautiful!
“KIWAMI” means extreme. You wanna be extreme, right? Whether you want to get digital or physical, you can pre-order Yakuza Kiwami now!
