During a stream discussing the upcoming Yakuza 3 remaster, SEGA CCO Toshihiro Nagoshi confirmed that there will be no cut content in any of the Yakuza 3, 4, or 5 remasters.
There was cut content? Anyone know the reason? I remember white Knight chronicles having cut content too.
Depends on the game, Yakuza 3 had a pretty large chunk of the content cut for the western release. According to Sega PR they removed content that they thought wouldn't resonate with western gamers, though there probably more because of budgetary issues. Y4 and Dead Souls both only had a trivia mini-game cut from them because, according to Sega, to actually translate the game they would have to make new art assets and they didn't have the resources to do that.
"During a recent streaming broadcast (above) discussing the three upcoming remasters, Nagoshi revealed that the remasters will be intended mainly for new fans of the game overseas who didn’t get a chance to experience the games originally." I suppose that pretty much confirms that the remasters are coming west. :D
That was actually confirmed that these remasters are being done for new yakuza fans so it's coming and most likely in one collection in summer 2019
it's not in one collection, in japan they will all receive physical releases as they come out and I'm pretty sure the same will happen here. In japan they will sell them at around $40 a game, we might get them even cheaper here
When are gamers going to start protesting developers who don’t release server software along with their games? Far too many good games die because of dedicated servers being shut down.
Umm wrong story😂
Wait wtf..? How’d I get here!?
Good game = Evolve?
Evolve is a bad example. I was stating more generally.
Just don't bring them to PC.
Yeah! Definitely makes sense to NOT allow other platforms to get the games so they make less money!
If Yakuza 7 is multiplatform it will have worse graphics, gameplay and likely some paid content like Ni No Kuni 2.
Can't wait to complete my collection even though I own these on ps3. I am also hoping for yakuza Ishin and dead souls with up to date controls
Dont care. Gimme. And dead souls.
Damn that sucks
This is a good thing. Whoever wrote the title botched it pretty bad. It makes it sound like all three games have cut content that won't be in the remasters when in reality all three games will have none of the content cut out.
Really liking these remasters! I have Kiwami and will get II as well and hopefully they'll do the rest! Will be getting Zero, five and six too! Played some of Kiwami but stopped because I want to play Zero first then go through them in order.
Kiwami is not a remasters. :D
Remake? I misspoke.
Do you mean, you want them to do Kiwami 3, 4 and 5 instead of just 3,4 and 5 hd remaster?
I want them to keep doing what they did with Kiwami and are doing with Kiwami II. There remakes not remasters I just miss typed.
I think Kiwami 3, 4 and 5 would be great but it would be a lot of effort and take a long time. I would also love them to do that but since I never played any Yakuza game before Kiwami I'll get the HD remasters. It'll be weird going from Kiwami 2 to original gameplay from 3, like going backwards.
I like Yakuza but im not buying all these games lol.. 0, kiwami, & 6 is enough for me.. Im ready for fist of the north star
Just ordered Yakuza 0 and kiwami for ps4,new to the series so not sure what to expect.looks abit like shemnue and sleeping dogs which I really enjoyed.
I started with Kiwami in February, then 0 the 6. Some say it is a spiritual successor to Shenmue but it's a little different. It's not like sleeping dogs in the open world aspect. The open world is really quite small but it is absolutely jam packed with content. Side stories, mini games and the gangsters asses to kick. The best part for me is the story, really great story. Looking forward to Kiwami 2 in August. It'll be a bit strange whe the HD remaster of 3 comes out because technologically it will be like going backwards from Kiwami 2 but with enough time between them it might not be too bad
I think I'm going to binge these some day.
People who love the Yakuza games for what they are, will not get full content, because they can upset someone who is not interested in these games. Yea seems legit XD
Hey Sega, how about giving the west that damn Fist Of The North Star game asap!
