The time has finally arrived. After originally announcing this bundle nearly 6 months ago, we’re finally closing the loop on this, because Yakuza 5 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 didn’t already redeem it.
Now is the perfect time to pick up this amazing collection that includes Yakuza 3, 4, and 5. Get a small taste of all that Yakuza 5‘s remaster has in store by watching the launch trailer!
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 (Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, Yakuza 5 Remastered, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life), we’ve 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 have been re-added in The Yakuza Remastered Collection.
For example, 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 Substory trackers on the map and the ability to toggle between English and Japanese written lyrics during Karaoke.
