Today Sega released a brand new gallery of screenshots of its upcoming Yakuza 5 HD remaster for PlayStation 4, focusing on story and characters.
Have to buy this. I've played 3 and 4, haven't touched Zero, 1 & 2 Kiwami, thinking of playing them through, but it just takes quite the lot of effort to finish all of these. Maybe instead of continuing the story from 4 straight to 5 and 6 would make sense. Any Ryu Ga Gotoku fans here who can guide me which would make games should be next? I've played also Ishin, which I thought was brilliant both in story and gameplay.
Zero is a prequel(set before all games in series) to Yakuza 1-5, and i'd imagine 6 aswell. Zero is regarded as the best, and having played it myself, it was possibly my GOTY. Kiwami 1 and 2 are essentially Yakuza 1 and 2 remakes. Yakuza 3 ,4 and 5 will be re-mastered for ps4. Remakes take alot more work. To answer your question, i'd start with 0, then kiwami 1 and 2. You'd then move onto Yakuza 3,4,5(once they're released) and then onto yakuza 6 (which has already been released).
Thanks for this. As mentioned, I've finished 3 & 4, so I'd be skipping the remasters, and move to 5 directly, and from there 6. I think 0, 1 and 2 are the next in line for this then! Zero is around 3000yen on PSN Japan store now, which is the cheapest I've seen so far. Just finished Shenmue 1+2 HD yesterday as well, and I've got an annual holiday coming up so maybe I'll buy Zero and start the Ryu Ga Gotoku project!
You really can’t miss Zero man. It’s just too good.
Wonder how the bears look like in HD
God i really hope this comes in the west and i hope its physical. This is the only Yakuza game that was digital only :( I did buy it for PS3 but stopped after getting like half way through. It was really really good but i just dont use the PS3 so i dunno, i just never got around to finishing it. 720p looks really rough these days too lol
