Sega’s Yakuza franchise has been quite popular down in Japan and only recently has its popularity been increasing in the West as titles from the series are gradually making their way to the market. The first releases from the Yakuza series have arrived on the PlayStation 4 in the West and those who played them have missed out on the earlier versions. They will be happy to know that remasters of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 are now in the pipeline for the PS4.
The first game of the series was released for the PlayStation 2 back in 2005. It has landed on the PlayStation 4 in the West as Yakuza Kiwami. The development team actually remade the entire game in the same engine that was used for the original.
The second title in the series will be out this summer as the Yakuza Kiwami 2. Fans were obviously wondering if the remaining three chapters would be released for the PlayStation 4 and it’s now known for sure that they will be. The announcement will be made in the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu that Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 are being remastered for PS4. The issue will be released tomorrow but it has already leaked in its conventional paper format.
Yakuza 3 remastered will be out for PS4 in Japan on August 9th, while Yakuza 4 will be out in the fall and Yakuza 5 will arrive in the spring of 2019. All remastered titles will have improved frame rate and resolution. It’s unclear as yet when they will arrive in the West.
