Xbox One and Windows 10 users can experience the story that started it all today with Yakuza Kiwami
Just one month after releasing Yakuza 0 on the Xbox One and Windows 10, SEGA has announced that the remake of Ryu ga Gotoku Studio’s first game in the series, Yakuza Kiwami, is now available on both platforms.
Totally remade using SEGA’s powerful Dragon Engine, Yakuza Kiwami brings the 2005 PlayStation 2 title to a new generation with an overhauled combat system, new mini-games and substories, and the absolutely ridiculous ‘Majima Anywhere System’, where the Mad Dog of Shimano, Goro Majima, will appear from where you least expect him to throughout Kamurocho to challenge Kiryu.
SEGA has released a new trailer for the game in celebration of its release. Check it out below:
You can find Yakuza Kiwami’s full list of features below courtesy of the publisher:
- Fight Like a Dragon: It wouldn’t be Yakuza without thugs and rival yakuza trying to take you down around every corner! Master four distinct fighting styles, or just grab whatever is lying on the street – a traffic cone, a sign, or even a bike – to take down your enemies.
- Majima Everywhere!: Who’s that walking down the street? Or hiding behind the corner? Or lying in wait under that giant traffic cone? It’s Majima, and he’s everywhere! Yakuza Kiwami introduces the ‘Majima Everywhere’ system, where you’ll always have to be on your toes and ready for combat when you encounter fan-favorite character Goro Majima… everywhere!
- The Story Can Wait: Yakuza Kiwami contains a depth of content outside of the main story path – take a break with some karaoke, compete in Pocket Circuit races, collect cards for your MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties team, complete over 70 substories, or just take a walk around Kamurocho… but keep an eye out for Majima!
Yakuza Kiwami initially released for the PlayStation 4 in August of 2017. We scored it a 4.5 out of 5 saying, “Simply put, if you’re a fan of the series who missed out on the original game on the PlayStation 2, the game is a must-play addition to the PlayStation 4’s library.
