Yakuza Remastered Collection is Headed to PS4, Yakuza 3 Out Today Digitally

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

A leak on the American Playstation Store has revealed the existence of a Yakuza Remastered Collection. This collection is the localised Western versions of the previously Japan-only PS4 versions of Yakuza 3, 4 and 5. The games are being released digitally first with a new localisation and all the content that was previously cut for the Western versions.

Yakuza 3 will release today with Yakuza 4 releasing on October 29th 2019 and Yakuza 5 will arrive on the 11th of February 2020. Once all 3 digital releases are available, a boxed collection of all 3 titles will be available as well. Pre-orders will supposedly arrive at some point today but at time of writing I can’t find any listings.

The boxed version comes with some really cool exclusives if you pre-order the day one edition. Yakuza 3 and 4 come on one disc with Yakuza 5 on a seperate disc. This is because it is also bundled with a PS3 style case for Yakuza 5 which infamously only got a digital release in PAL regions. Also included is a 2 disc digipack case which houses the entire collection.

PS4 Remasters of Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 Confirmed

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Dengeki Playstation has exclusively revealed that PS4 remasters of Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 are happening and the first release will be Yakuza 3 on August 9th 2018. This is currently only confirmed for a Japanese release, but it will include a download code for the game’s original soundtrack and will cost 3990 yen.

The Yakuza 4 remaster will then arrive in an “Autumn 2018” launch window, with Yakuza 5 set of Spring 2019. The only improvements confirmed for all 3 games so far is increased resolution and higher framerates. There is currently no word on whether these are Kiwami-style remakes with new and exclusive content.

Yakuza 3 Reviewed by Actual Yakuza

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Now excuse me if this is a little old but I just discovered it and found it a fascinating read. Jake Adelstein author of Tokyo Vice has asked several yakuza to play Yakuza 3 for their opinion on how accurate it is.

Highlights include:

“I like the fact that you power up by eating real food. Shio ramen gives you a lot of power – CC Lemon, not as much. It all makes sense.”

“No yakuza is going to run around getting into fistfights like that. Especially not an executive type. He’ll wind up in jail or in the hospital or dead, maybe even whacked by his own people for being a troublemaker.”

On Kazuma’s red shirt: “He’s supposed to be a former boss of the Inagawakai and he dresses like a chinpira (low level yakuza punk). He’s a yakuza, not a host.”

Regarding the cuts made in the Western version: “I feel sorry for the people who bought the American version. SEGA USA sucks.”

One of the yakuza using the pseudonym Kuroishi knew a yakuza who ran an orphanage like Kazuma. “Sure it was a tax shelter but he ran it like a legitimate thing, you know.”
