Pool can still go to hell
Yesterday, Sega announced that Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 would be heading to the PS4 in Japan. Now, we have a better idea of what the game will look like running on Sony’s latest console. While it is a little disappointing at none of the assets are being changed out, just watching Kiryu smack punks in the face takes me back to the first time I stepped into his shoes. Yakuza 3 is an amazing game and you guys should definitely play it.
Nothing is being added or changed with this release, though US gamers will probably be scratching their heads at the hostess stuff. That content got cut from the US version of Yakuza 3, so I’m hopeful that it will remain intact should these remasters come West. I know Scott Strichart, localization producer for Yakuza over at Atlus, told me he’d love to get a chance to restore the cut features with a touched up localization.
Whether or not it does come West, watching this game run at 60 FPS is incredible. I’m almost tempted to import it just to play this gem again. The game will be landing in Japan on August 9, 2018, for 3,990 ¥ (roughly $37).
