Xbox players finally have a chance to see where the legendary Yakuza series all began, with the release of Yakuza Kiwami on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, and Windows 10 today!
A ground-up remake of 2005’s Yakuza, Yakuza Kiwami picks up where Yakuza 0 leaves off, and puts players back in the snakeskin shoes of series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. After facing a 10-year prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s released into a world he no longer recognizes, alone and expelled from his former yakuza family. Shortly after his release, he encounters a mysterious girl named Haruka, who may be the key to the answers Kiryu seeks.
Here are just a few of the features players can look forward to when Yakuza Kiwami launches on Xbox One and Windows 10:
⦁ Fight Like a Dragon: It wouldn’t be Yakuza without thugs and rival yakuza trying to take you down around every corner! Master four distinct fighting styles, or just grab whatever is lying on the street – a traffic cone, a sign, or even a bike – to take down your enemies.
⦁ Majima Everywhere!: Who’s that walking down the street? Or hiding behind the corner? Or lying in wait under that giant traffic cone? It’s Majima, and he’s everywhere! Yakuza Kiwami introduces the ‘Majima Everywhere’ system, where you’ll always have to be on your toes and ready for combat when you encounter fan-favorite character Goro Majima… everywhere!
⦁ The Story Can Wait: Yakuza Kiwami contains a depth of content outside of the main story path – take a break with some karaoke, compete in Pocket Circuit races, collect cards for your MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties team, complete over 70 substories, or just take a walk around Kamurocho… but keep an eye out for Majima!
