Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 in a time-release PS4 collection starting today ⊟
If you buy the Yakuza Remastered Collection on PSN, you’ll get a PS4 version of Yakuza 3 today, then Yakuza 4 on October 29, then Yakuza 5 on February 11! So what’s different about these? Enough!
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 of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 have been re-added in The Yakuza Remastered Collection.
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 a Substory tracker on the map and the ability to toggle between English and Japanese written lyrics during Karaoke.
There is also a “limited” physical version of this collection, with all three monstrous games on two discs, and a PS3 Yakuza 5 case so collectors can have that on their shelves next to the 3 and 4 boxes. Which may be the first collector’s edition feature designed specifically, exclusively for people buying the game twice.
And if you don’t have 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2, those are being bundled on PSN for $50.
