Can’t wait to jump back into the rough-and-tumble world of Yakuza? How about a flashy new trailer to tide you over for now?
The new video for upcoming the remake Yakuza Kiwami shows off some of the fun activities you can indulge in to pass the time! It should come as no surprise that the streets are filled with thugs who are just asking for a beat down, but luckily, Kiryu is equipped with four deadly fighting techniques waiting to be unleashed. Educate enemies in the art of fisticuffs with the balanced Brawler, all-powerful Beast, lightning-quick Rush, and unstoppable Dragon styles. Once the riffraff have been dealt with, cool off by exploring the various vices that Kamurocho offers! Classic minigames like Mahjong, pool, and karaoke are back, but new distractions like Pocket Circuit car racing, new hostesses, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, and more can be enjoyed as Kiryu passes the time between fights.
You can also check out the Yakuza Experience website, a Yakuza portal where the world of Yakuza can be explored via an interactive timeline and character map. It’s a great resource to use if you want to learn about the history, characters, and families in the series. The site also features a 10-issue digital comic, starting with some of the key events of Yakuza 0 and taking you along for the ride all the way up to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (coming to PlayStation 4 early next year). Speaking of the comic, the third issue has been uploaded today! It sets the stage for Yakuza Kiwami, with an all new flash back and perhaps the most life-changing moment in Kiryu’s life.
Without further ado, learn what makes Kamurocho such an enticing destination for Yakuza members in the trailer below!
Yakuza Kiwami will be released on PlayStation 4 physically and digitally on the 29th of August.
