Yakuza Kiwami PS4 vs Yakuza PS2 Screenshot Comparison: This is How Remakes Should be (Re)Made

Howe many times have you seen people commenting on remakes, remasters or even new games and saying “it looks like a PS2 game?” Most of the times, those memories of the PS2 are painted by the rose-tinted glass of nostalgia, and those games don’t look like PS2 titles at all.

A few days ago, Sega released Yakuza Kiwami, which is indeed the remake of a PS2 game, Yakuza. The first, glorious game of the series was already remastered in high definition as part of a compilation with Yakuza 2 for Wii U and PS3, but now you’re looking at something completely different.

Looks really good. I hope it gets an English release.

PS2 version still looks Great, Yakuza Kiwami PS4 still looks like it runs on PS3 engine and use little of PS4 full power. Hope SEGA upgrade their game engine.

First positive thing Sega has done in a decade.

I don't know why I keep looking. I want the game but there aren't any subtitles and Sega have said nothing on whether it is being localised for the West.

Damn Space Harrier was dope and the other games you mentioned, nostalgia.

Thank you WallStreet. Yes, I know people love to move forward as do I, but I believe there is something to be said about remaking classics that we loved and were well made and successful and FUN back then.

Whats better than bringing all that back with even more flare with today's technology to allow an entirely new generation to enjoy what so many others did in the past, not to mention bringing all of the original fans back into the fold? All of this is simply my opinion. Again, thanks for you kind words.

Oh that was a remake ? of what the first one ?

I'd thought it was the new one but that is Yakuza 6 then right ?

I've always known of this series but never played since I've never owned a Sony console.

Looks like an awesome series though.

Me too! I haven't been interested in much from Yakuza since 2, and this looks like a great remake of a great game.

If they could only do the same thing to JSRF, now...

The fact that they released Y5 in the west is a sign Kiwami will get a release as well imho.
