12 long years have passed since the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, made his debut on PlayStation 2 in Yakuza, but it’s time to return to where it all started. Get ready to unleash the dragon, because the HD remake Yakuza Kiwami.
Yakuza Kiwami Features:
A Family Patriarch's Ransom of New Content - “Kiwami” literally translates to “extreme,” and the game was named that for good reason. Not just a simple graphical upgrade, Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game's plot and creating common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0. There's also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests, combat updates, re-recorded Japanese dialogue, and more to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
A Place for Newcomers and Veterans - Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate bridge in the series: newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
But it was me! Majima! - Completely new to Kiwami is the "Majima Everywhere" system, where the series' deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We're talking "popping out of a goofy costume" levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu's chief rival.
Extreme Revitalization - Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA's commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.

I played the original back in the day and I loved it and to see that this has had a graphical update with more features it was certainly a treat for me. Extremely fast shipping, a very good price. I am extremely happy with 365 games. I shall make many more orders with this company as they have never let me down.

My first time using 365games and I'll definitely be back. They were the most competitive on price with the game, answered my queries promptly and got my game to me in just 2 days with free delivery. On top of this, the rewards system is fab. You collect points for purchases which give you money off future purchases! Thanks so much guys!
As for the game, Yakuza Kiwami takes the original Yakuza game for PS2 and brings it bang upto date, giving newcomers a chance to experience the great story telling, quirky mini games and classic beat-em-up gameplay. This franchise has a tonne of charm and is worth a try for old fans and newcomers alike!
