Following on from remasters of the first two Yakuza games, Sega have announced that remasters of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 will be coming to PlayStation 4 in the West, with the third game already out.
In addition to them having HD resolutions and improved frame rates, they’ll all be available in one bundle titled The Yakuza Remastered Collection. Purchasing that will get you Yakuza 3 now, the fourth Yakuza game on October the 29th, and Yakuza 5 on February the 11th, 2020.
Each Yakuza game follows multiple protagonists as they complete missions for, and sometimes against, the Yakuza. In addition to the main stories, a semi open world in each game allows for often absolutely wild side quests, with missions like ‘stopping a giant child from stealing trousers’ appearing in series prequel, Yakuza 0. Another staple of the series is multiple activities the player can indulge in, from karaoke and dance contests, to Scalextric-a-like racing games.
With Yakuza 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2 coming to PC over the last year, VG247 spoke with series producer Daisuke Sato, asking whether or not the entire series will come to PC. Whilst not confirming, Daisuke didn’t rule it out. “I can’t comment on that at this very moment,” he said, laughing. “But I wouldn’t say it won’t ever happen.”
Given the previous remasters success on PC, as well as Sega considering Yakuza a ‘multi-platform series’, it seems likely that we’ll be seeing Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 on PC at some point in the future. However, we do not have any information about dates just yet, but we’ll be keeping our eyes on Sega for future announcements.
