Sony showcased a new Yakuza 6 & Yakuza Kiwami Trailer at the PlayStation Experience and confirmed both titles would be making their way to the west. Yakuza Kiwami will be dropping Summer 2017, with Yakuza 6 following in early 2018. It seems far off, but with Yakuza 0 also coming soon we’re grateful for the Yakuza western love!
Yakuza Kiwami is the gorgeous looking remake of the first, masterful Yakuza game. In the west we missed out on the Yakuza 1 & 2 HD collection on PS3, so this marks the first time Yakuza (as in, the first game) will be available in the west since the original released over here 10 years ago in 2006. Yakuza 2 still needs a HD version in the west if you ask us, though!
Yakuza 6 is the next mainline game in the Yakuza series. We’re covered the Japanese trailers and it’s looking amazing. The game launches next week in Japan, so having to wait until 2018 to get to play it in English feels like the longest wait of all time. It is a series that oozes charm, though, so being able to understand is very much recommended.
