Yakuza Restoration Is Part Harvest Moon When You’re Not Beating Up Thugs

By Sato . November 15, 2013 . 1:05pm

Previous Yakuza games always featured various actives to do in Kamurocho, like playing games at arcades and going to batting cages. Since Yakuza Restoration takes place during feudal Japan, I doubt there will be any local Sega centers, but there are other things Kazuma Kiryu Sakamoto Ryoma can do.

There are 20 different vegetables and crops you can grow at home. Some will take longer than others to fully grow, so you might need to think twice before planting. They can then be used for cooking foods or sold for profit in the market.

Fishing is another activity that will be available in Yakuza Restoration. Players can try out different lures at various rivers and lakes. Similar to the vegetables, the fish can also be used for cooking or sold profit.




Having a home wouldn’t be the same without pets! After finding stray cats or dogs in town, you’ll get to keep up to three of them at your home. By playing with them enough, they’ll show you their affection by occasionally bringing home rare items they’ve picked up.


Yakuza Restoration is slated for release in Japan on February 22nd, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

    Yakuza Kenzan had it’s share of mini games :)
    The dog looks pretty good but something feels very very off about those cats.

  • wahhhh :( I want this… :(

  • I will trade all my Yakuza 1-4 for this.

    • Micrll

      Can we also include the latest sonic games and get Yakuza Kenzan while we are at it?

      • Yeah, if only! Sega was really trucking for a while there, but I guess Valkyria Chronicles, Yakuza, Fate of Resonance didn’t sell well enough. :( welcome to the new DARK AGE OF VIDEO GAMES. Hope you like American stuff. I DON’T. :) (that’s a lie… I like some…)

  • Jesse

    Yakuza and Harvest Moon…that’d be a weird collaboration.

  • Lazulis

    Yo, those look like jungle cats tho. Not like…house cats…

    Shibe! Doge! So amaze. Wow.

  • benhofb

    Wasn’t this game also coming to Vita as well? It keeps looking better and better… Hopefully it has a chance getting localized!

  • new_tradition

    I’ve never played any of the Yakuza games before, but this honestly has my interest O.O

  • katamari damacy

    Instead of wasting money localizing poor Sonic games they could put their efforts towards localizing what is shaping up to be an instant classic

  • Kai2591

    Games need moar cats.
