New 1080p Screenshots From PS4 Version of Yakuza Ishin Look Beautifully Realistic

Yakuza Ishin is approaching its release in Japan on February 22nd, and Sega just released a batch of full HD screenshots from the PS4 version of the game.

The screenshots portray the first chapter of the upcoming title and look quite amazing, especially thanks to the realistic expression of the character models.

All we can do, now, is to wait and pray for Sega and Sony to see the light, and to bring this game to the west. In the meanwhile you can enjoy the gallery below and keep dreaming.

    Graphics dont impress me 1 bit look like old PS3 character models but what do you expect with a port? I might invest in the next Yakuza ive never played 1 and im a BIG fan of Shenmue. Looks similar!

  • Nicholas Perry

    Disappointing textures. But it still looks great.

  • NeonPriest

    Wish this was coming to ps4 in the USA

    • HarryMasonHerpDerp

      Also Europe.
      Although I wouldn’t mind importing from the US.

    • GeorgeAlbanis

      Same here. Can only wish….

  • PhantomVash808

    Come on Atlus bring this to the West

    • ExTrooperBrenTurner

      You mean “Sega”, right ?

      • PhantomVash808

        Sega owns Atlus but allows them to function how they were before the acquisition. Also Sega allows Atlus to have access to any of their IP so that means if Atlus wants translate and bring over Yakuza games they can.

        • ExTrooperBrenTurner

          Yeah, but it was Sega that published the previous games (well, at least those that came out in Europe), so I was saying that if a publisher is to release the game around here, I think that would be Sega (itself) once again.

  • Trim Dose

    Sony you better get this to America or else!!!!

  • LordArklon

    THAT looks realistic to you guys, and beautifully so? The plastic looking skin, flat lighting, and the laughably jagged hair that looks like paper suggests otherwise. Use your better judgment, this looks no better than a Tekken game on PS3.

    • shinitaru

      I agree to about the skin but the facial expressions and the environments are great..and I think the lighting is spot on

    • Budgiecat

      I think you have this confused with ryse on the xbone.

      • LordArklon

        Nice try, but take your fanboy goggles off. These visuals would barely be above average for a PS3 game; I consider this unacceptable for the current generation.

        • lesrima88

          funny this looks unacceptable to you yet 720p/30fps on a ‘next gen”console is acceptable,silly xbots

          • LordArklon

            Are you kidding me? Show me where I ever said a word about an Xbox game being acceptable. I’ll wait. You fanboys are unbelievable; just have to make a pissing contest out of everything. If someone is dissatisfied with a piece of cloth on a Sony game, then they MUST be an Xbox lover. Go back to school and actually learn a thing or two about logic.

          • frontiermarine88

            cry harder xbot,you’re feeling bad that the piece of shit xbox can’t produce realistic graphics in native 1080p,fucking broke ass moron XD

          • LordArklon

            Grow up, you big baby. Just listen to yourself.

          • frontiermarine88

            Silly Xbot stick to your xbox one than whining on a ps4 article like a baby,idiot,don’t worry one day you’ll be able to afford a ps4

          • Budgiecat

            Can’t change a xbot with a xboner.

          • Kev Bean

            As a PC gamer, this game looks bad.

  • Rodrigo

    Wowww ok! 🙂
    Love this awesome piece of art!

  • benbenkr

    “Beautifuly Realistic”.

    *looks at textures on ground, objects and environment*

    Wow those ugly bumpmaps. Beautiful and realistic indeed.

  • DaneBohan

    Lol at all the downvotes everyone getting saying the game looks bad, I for one agree, the “beautifully realistic” is just a clickbait, honestly I see no difference it being a ps2 or ps3 game in terms of visuals, animation & gameplay.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m a loyal Sony fan but this is pretty dissapointing, but hey it’s just the start of a new gen so hopefully things will get better from here 🙂

    • Jecht_Sin

      Let’s say it has dat “retro” feeling we all love.. 🙂

  • MortisMelis

    It’s not an ugly game, but it’s not “beautifully realistic” it doesn’t look as good as TLoUS on PS3…
    I hope that it’s fun to play because that’s what matters…

    • PatcherStation

      When has any of the Yakuza games been fun to play?

    • Jagger

      The only parts that looked better in The Last of Us were the cut-scenes, which were pre-rendered.

  • Psionicinversion

    lmao what a pile of cack… the main character looks really good but the rest of it look slike trash. Better looking face models on CoD: Black Ops for the rest off them, also notice how when it isnt even that far away from the main characters distance it starts to blur and down scale the resolution, prolly not the PS4 fault maybe more down to the devs but still if that beautifully realistic im staying away from japan if the people look like that!!

  • Manoj Varughese

    This will be beast in Japan! Yet nothing less than significant in America too.

  • dirkradke

    Is the screen shots shown here actually in game footage or are they more like a cut scene in between game play segments? If actual game play then it is impressive. If the screen shots only show non-interactive footage then this has all been done before.

  • bazzatits999

    LOL “realistic”… PS3 early game’s quality at best. $ony have half assed cut scene simulators like this to compete with the likes of titanfall on XB1 ? wow…some would say its a brave move. i’d say it’s japan have finally gone crazy…

    • Convergence87

      what a loser

  • PatcherStation

    That’s all you get these days, graphics this, graphics that. 1080p versus 720p. PS4 versions versus the Xbox One version, even comparing them to last gen versions. Will this game have the game play? Probably not. Playing some of the Yakuza games on the PS2 and PS3, they lack depth. The Order has a lot to live up to. Experienced gamers realise the ins and outs. As for reviews, don’t be sucked in.

  • Gamist

    Wow, the bashing. Anyway, this is a launch title and it’s Sega. If this were 2016 (As Mark Cerny stated; 3yrs for devs to tap into the true power of the console) and the game looks like this, then I would agree with the negative comments. Until then, I’m cutting Sega some slack.
    The game does look interesting, and where are the 1080p images of the hot women?

  • theshape031

    Looks like PS3-quality graphics.
