During this year’s Gamescom conference, Sega announced that the Yakuza Remastered Collection will be heading to the PlayStation 4. The collection will include Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5, and each title will have a different release date. It is the first time these games will be remastered for current-gen consoles.
Yakuza 3 is available right now in the PlayStation Store, but Yakuza 4 will be released on 19 October, and Yakuza 5 on 11 February 2020. Although the collection will only be available on PS4 for the moment, there is hope that they will be released on PC and other consoles in the future. Sega also announced that the collection will have a “very limited” physical run called The Yakuza Remastered Collection: Day One Edition, which will release on the same day as Yakuza 5.
Each of the games have been updated to run at 1080p60fps and have also gone through a completely new re-localization process. Sega says “The English scripts for each game have been reviewed, revised, and even rewritten in some cases.” They have also announced that the remastered collection will include all cut content from the previous Western releases.
The remasters will be sold at full price, but some Yakuza fans may not have a problem with this. This announcement also means that all of the Yakuza games will be available on the PS4, with players being able to play through Kiryu’s story from Yakuza 0 to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.
This has been something that Yakuza fans have been asking for a very long time. Many will be excited to experience Kiryu’s complete journey, which will hopefully soon come to other platforms too.
