The Yakuza series has boomed in popularity in the west since its first releases on PS4, so many of the current fans have missed its earlier chapters.
While the first game is already available as Yakuza Kiwami, and the second is coming this summer (in the west) as Yakuza Kiwami 2, many have been asking themselves if the chapters from three to five are ever coming to Sony’s newer console.
Turns out that they are, as announced in this week’s issue of the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu. The issue is coming out tomorrow, but as usual, it has already been leaked in its traditional paper form.
The remaster of Yakuza 3 will release in Japan on August 9th, priced at 3,990 yen. The remaster of Yakuza 4 will come in the fall, while Yakuza 5 will be released in the spring of next year. All three games will feature improved resolution and frame rate.
Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 were originally released in 2009, 2010, and 2013, all for PS3.
