Yakuza: Kiwami is the remake of the original Yakuza that first launched on PS4 and PS3 in Japan in January 2016, followed by a PS4 release in North America and Europe in August 2017. If up until now there are still fans who have not played the game, definitely consider getting it on PC.
One of the new features of the PC version of Yakuza: Kiwami is of course the ability to play the game in 4K resolution. It also has uncapped frame rates which means more solid playthrough, and customizable controls. There’s also an ultra-widescreen support for those who have a widescreen monitor. Pretty much, it’s the same version as the one Sega released for PS4 and PS3. In addition, majority of th egame audio are re-recorded by the series cast.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Steam:
“Kiwami” means extreme.
1995, Kamurocho… Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss to protect his sworn brother, Akira Nishikiyama, and his childhood friend, Yumi.
2005… Akira Nishikiyama has become a changed man. Yumi is nowhere to be found. Ten billion yen has gone missing from the Tojo Clan’s coffers, putting the organization on the brink of civil war. And Kazuma Kiryu is released from prison to a world he no longer recognizes.
With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from Yakuza 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio by the series cast, Yakuza: Kiwami is the ultimate and most “extreme” version of the original vision of the series, now optimized for PC with 4K resolutions, uncapped framerates, customisable controls and ultra-widescreen support.
Yakuza: Kiwami is available now for PS4 in North America. PC gamers will have to wait until February 19 for the most definitive version of the game.
