New and old Yakuza fans alike got a specific treat nowadays, as the Yakuza Remastered Collection was announced for PlayStation four – a complete update of Yakuza three, four, and five for modern day machines with modern day localisations. But now that the series has ultimately began generating its way to Computer, can the fresh set of remasters be far behind?
We can say for confident that a Computer version of the Yakuza Remastered Collection is not coming quickly. Asked about the possibility of a Computer port at Gamescom, series producer Daisuke Sato tells VG247 that “I can not comment on that at this really moment. But I wouldn’t say it will not ever come about.”
Provided the path of Yakuza ports on Computer, an eventual release for this collection appears inevitable, but it appears like that is as concrete a response as we’re acquiring for now. On console, the remasters are only out there as a bundle. Yakuza three is out appropriate now, Yakuza four will launch on October 29, and Yakuza five will finish out the collection on February 11.
The Yakuza three release is specially notable, as it’ll contain the content material reduce from the original localisation, which includes points like mahjong and hostess clubs that have been removed for worry that Western audience wouldn’t recognize them. Mahjong will even have a new tutorial to introduce English-speaking players to the game, as Sato tells GamesIndustry.biz in a separate interview.
There’ll nevertheless be some points reduce in the new version, even though. A substory exactly where Kiryu tries to escape the romantic advances of a trans lady has been removed, for instance. The game’s also been altered as a outcome of expired licenses for actor likenesses and corporate logos. Sato says “since we had to adjust some content material anyway, we felt we really should update the content material for the existing age when we’re releasing this game.”
Yakuza Kiwami two – a complete remake of the original Yakuza two – hit Computer earlier this year, so the collection of three, four, and five will mark the ideal continuation of the series if you have just jumped in. But do count on to maintain waiting if you want that continuation on Computer.
