Yazuka Kiwami Now Taking Digital Pre-Orders

Pre-order now, and class up your PS4 with a free theme

Yakuza Kiwami Theme 1

We’ve still got a little over a month to go before Yakuza Kiwami starts cracking heads on the PlayStation 4, but those itching to get into the action as soon as possible can digitally pre-order the game starting today.

As an added incentive, SEGA will be handing out a free PlayStation 4 theme to those who digitally pre-order Yakuza Kiwami. This fresh, new, “brotastic” theme features the familiar Yakuza bros Kazuma Kiryu and Akira Nishikiyama in all of their glory.

Yakuza Kiwami will allow players to re-live (or experience for the first time) the original Yakuza for the PlayStation 2, and will include more content than ever before. For a closer look, check out the list of key features below:

  • 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.

Yakuza Kiwami is slated to release on PlayStation 4 on August 29 in both physical and digital format for $29.99. If you’re planning on purchasing it digitally, you might as well pre-order it and snag yourself that theme. Are you planning on going back to where Yazuka all began?
