Shopto throwing their hat in the ring

Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza - the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn't commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu's clan expel him from the yakuza, but ¥10 billion (~$100 million) goes missing from the clan treasury. Worse yet, Kiryu's childhood sweetheart is also nowhere to be found, and with the entirety of the Japanese underworld on the hunt for the missing cash, Kiryu is all but lost until he finds the orphan girl Haruka, searching for her aunt who shares the same name as Kiryu's missing love. What follows from there is a web of betrayal, underworld politics, and redemption as nothing will stop Kiryu from regaining his honor.

Yakuza Kiwami Features:

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.

Oh it's a dead cert base will go lower (no pun intended) I'd imagine a few are giving F5 some love on the site at the moment

All over this!

sensible price for a remaster thanks op

Fantastic price, I remember playing this on the PS2, looking forward to playing it all over again!

Price dropped again at Zavvi, hopefully this war keeps up and we get near £20

Which is least likely to scratch and bend it in half then send it in a paper envelope, Shopto or Zavvi?

It's not a remaster.

What is it then? Is it a sequel? I thought the original Yakuza followed from Yakuza 0?

Yes it is - blog.us.playstation.com/201…ake

Although they say it's a 'ground-up' remake, it's still a remake.

A remake is not a remaster.

A remake typically shares very little of the original assets and code … A remake typically shares very little of the original assets and code with the original game, distinguishing it from an "enhanced port", partial remake, or remastering.

Is this a remake with updated graphics/additional content?

thanks will go for this instead of zavvi, at least with shopto it will turn up on release and not weeks after or never as it will with zavvi

I remember playing a Yakuza ages ago but not sure if it's this one. The one I played may have been on the PS3 actually. Is this the game where he has a school?

I said it's not a "remaster'. I never said it wasn't a remake, which it clearly is and I was always aware of.
