This comic is the latest in a push to raise Yakuza’s visibility in the West. The remake of the first title, Yakuza Kiwami, also released a few months ago. Check out Tyler Treese’s Yakuza Kiwami review:
One of 2017’s most unexpected success stories is SEGA’s Yakuza series. Against all odds, the crime-themed action games have finally started to catch on in North America more than 12 years after the series premiered on PlayStation 2. After the success of Yakuza 0, it’s only fitting that the series’ debut should get a second chance to win gamers over. Yakuza Kiwami isn’t just a mere HD upgrade of the original, though; it’s a full blown remake with a ton of new features.
As someone who played the (Japan exclusive) HD version of Yakuza earlier this year, the changes were easily spotted. Kiwami uses the same engine that 0 used, meaning that the predetermined camera angles and constant load times of the PlayStation 2 version are gone. Anyone who played the prequel earlier this year should know exactly what to expect from the engine, as it details Kamurocho in tremendous detail.
