INTRO

The inaugural entry in the critically-acclaimed YAKUZA series first shed its light on the seedy underbelly of Japan and the criminal organizations that thrive there in 2006 on PlayStation®2. Players are introduced to the “Dragon of Dojima,” Kazuma Kiryu, an up-and-coming yakuza who takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss, only to emerge from prison ten years later to a changed world.

KIWAMI” means EXTREME.

In 2017, YAKUZA KIWAMI takes us back to the original entry point of the series, completely rebuilt from the ground up for the PlayStation®4.

With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from YAKUZA 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio presented in the original Japanese for the first time, YAKUZA KIWAMI is the ultimate and most “extreme” version of the original vision of the series for first-time players and long-time fans alike.

STORY

The year is 1995, and Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, is an up-and-coming yakuza. A Lieutenant Advisor in the Tojo Clan’s Dojima Family, his hard work has nearly earned him his own sub-family in this prestigious group.

But one rainy night, the unthinkable happens. Sohei Dojima, Patriarch of the Dojima Family, kidnaps Kiryu’s childhood friend, Yumi. In an effort to save her, Kiryu’s sworn brother, Akira Nishikiyama, rushes after them.

As the thunder claps, gunshots ring out from the Dojima Family office. Kiryu arrives to find Nishikiyama holding the smoking gun over Dojima’s dead body, and Yumi in shock from the trauma.

Kiryu makes a decision that will change his life forever. Sending Nishikiyama out of the room to look after Yumi, Kiryu picks up the gun as the police arrive to arrest the culprit…

The year is 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.

Features

  • GREAT STARTING PLACE FOR NEWCOMERS: Newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho – the fictional red-light district of Tokyo the game is set in – and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
  • BACK TO THE ROOTS OF THE YAKUZA SERIES: Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes, providing all-new insight into the game’s plot. There’s also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests and combat updates to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
  • MAJIMA EVERYWHERE: Completely new to Kiwami is the “Majima Everywhere” system, where the series’ deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We’re talking “popping out of a goofy costume” levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu’s chief rival.
  • EXTREME REVITALIZATION: Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA’s commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.
