It’s been revealed through a sneaky GIF on Yakuza Kiwami‘s Steam page that the remaster of the first Yakuza game is coming to PC with 4K resolution and uncapped framerates on February 19, 2019. [Thanks, Metacouncil via @Wario64.]
You can check out the GIF below where the date is shown for a frame.
Here are more details about the game from Sega:
“Kiwami” means extreme.
1995, Kamurocho… Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss to protect his sworn brother, Akira Nishikiyama, and his childhood friend, Yumi.
2005… Akira Nishikiyama has become a changed man. Yumi is nowhere to be found. Ten billion yen has gone missing from the Tojo Clan’s coffers, putting the organization on the brink of civil war. And Kazuma Kiryu is released from prison to a world he no longer recognizes.
With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from Yakuza 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio by the series cast, Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate and most “extreme” version of the original vision of the series, now optimised for PC with 4K resolutions, uncapped framerates, customisable controls and ultra-widescreen support.
Yakuza Kiwami is available on PlayStation 4. It’ll release for PC via Steam on February 19, 2019.
