Sega has announced that Yakuza Kiwami will finally come to PC next month.
Sega has officially confirmed that open world action RPG, Yakuza Kiwami, will be released for PC on February 19, 2019.
The game is available now to pre-order on Steam for the bargain price of £14.99/$19.99/€19.99, which includes a 10% discount. Pre-orders will also come with bonus content, including some avatars, Yakuza wallpapers, and a digital manga.
Yakuza Kiwami is a top-to-bottom update of the very first Yakuza game – released in 2005 – and features re-recorded voice acting, an uncapped frame rate, custom controls, and support for 4K resolution.
Here’s a new trailer for the PC edition.
In our review of the PS4 version of Yakuza Kiwami, we said:
“Sega has crafted a haven for gaming traditionalism: an embrace of the gap between play and story, a love of the excess and quirks of the medium, and an unapologetic strut that recalls its halcyon days.”
Prequel, Yakuza 0, came to PC last year, and series spin-off, Judgment, is set for a Western PlayStation 4 release later this fall.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
