It's been an amazing week for the underrated Yakuza series, with Yakuza 5 launching on the PlayStation 3, Yakuza Zero being announced for Western release, Yakuza 6 landing its first trailer… And now Yakuza: Kiwami, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 remake of Yakuza, scoring an eight minute story trailer. Are you keeping up?
The clip for the forthcoming remake sets up the story, which will already be familiar to fans of the franchise. It's not a direct up-res of the PlayStation 2 game, though, as the visuals have been completely re-done, and new mechanics and minigames have been incorporated. Plus, those that pick up the package on 21st January in Japan will nab a PS4 demo for Yakuza 6. Hai!
