The Yakuza Remastered Collection Begins Today
I have asked for this to happen for a long time now. Today at Gamescom Sega announced the Yakuza Remastered Collection with the digital version being available starting today with Yakuza 3. This is an interesting way to release the titles I will admit.
Yakuza Collection Scheduled
Apparently the collection in digital form will be distributed one at a time and as stated you can download Yakuza 3 right now in the PlayStation Store. The whole collection will also have Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5.
Once you purchase the Yakuza collection the rest of the titles will release on the following dates. Yakuza 4 drops October 29th, 2019 and on February 11, 2020 Yakuza 5 will release.
The news doesn’t end there for those that are interested in the physical copy of this collection you are in luck. The Yakuza Remastered Collection: Day One Edition will be a limited run that will also come out on February 11, 2020.
A limited run of The Yakuza Remastered Collection: Day One Edition will release on February 11, 2020 for $59.99, and contains Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, & Yakuza 5 on two disks in a striking red collectible case emblazoned with Kiryu’s trademark dragon tattoo. This release marks the first time Yakuza 5 will be available in a physical format in the West, so the collection also includes a genuine Yakuza 5 PS3 case; after 5 years since the game’s original release, series collectors can finally fill the gap in their library! Supplies are very limited, so get your order in while supplies last!
- Complete the Journey of the Dragon: The Yakuza Remastered Collection brings the final missing chapters in Kiryu’s story to the PlayStation 4. From Yakuza 0 to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, players can now experience the full story of The Dragon of Dojima, all on a single platform.
- Remastered and Refreshed: All three games in the collection have received impressive graphical and performance upgrades, from 720p at 30fps to 1080p at 60fps and have also gone through a rigorous re-localization process. Missing content from the original Western releases has been re-added to the remastered versions, and the full English scripts have been reviewed, revised, and had portions rewritten for accuracy alongside the original Japanese releases.
Take advantage of the collection or pre-order the physical copy coming out next year. The Yakuza series is a great game to get into and you have the recent release of Judgement a.k.a Judge Eyes available now as well. – Beast Out –
