Yakuza Series Now Fully Playable On PS4

The time has finally arrived. SEGA has added the final game to their Yakuza Series on PlayStation 4. Yakuza 5 Remastered is now available to download for all digital owners of The Yakuza Remastered Collection on the PlayStation™Store!

Special Note: If you’ve already downloaded The Yakuza Remastered Collection, to download Yakuza 5 Remastered, you’ll want to check for Yakuza 5 Remastered in the ‘Not Installed’ part of your PS4 library. You can also visit The Yakuza Remastered Collection store page, and it will be located under ‘Extras’ or ‘DLC’. The same goes for Yakuza 4 Remastered if you haven’t already redeemed it.

Kazuma Kiryu’s newfound calm as an unassuming cab driver comes to a sudden end as the standing peace between the Tojo Clan and Omi Alliance disintegrates. Forced to reckon with his past once more, the Dragon of Dojima returns to the criminal underworld to protect those he holds dear. Kiryu. Akiyama. Saejima. Shinada. Haruka. Their lives interwoven, follow their quest to navigate the corrupt underbelly and prevent an all-out turf war.

To celebrate the launch, and the momentous occasion of Yakuza 0-6 now all available on PlayStation 4:

SEGA has released a dynamic theme featuring series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu’s iconic dragon tattoo, available for free to all owners of The Yakuza Remastered Collection!

What’s Changed in The Yakuza Remastered Collection?

The Yakuza Remastered Collection is far from a typical console generation port. In addition to graphical and performance upgrades (720p>1080p at 30>60fps), all three games have gone through a rigorous re-localization process. The English scripts for each game have been reviewed, revised, and even rewritten in some cases, and content previously cut from the Western releases of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 have been re-added in The Yakuza Remastered Collection. In Yakuza 3, this means the Mahjong, Shogi, Massage Parlor, and ever-popular Cabaret minigames, as well as a collection of Substories cut from the original release, are now available in the West for the first time! Several quality-of-life changes have also been added for each release in the collection, including a Substory tracker on the map and the ability to toggle between English and Japanese written lyrics during Karaoke.

The Yakuza Remastered Collection is now available to download and play digitally for $59.99 and includes Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5.
