Just for the record… Kiwami = Extreme!
Ultimate or extreme would be a fitting description for the PC version of the game. The Yakuza Kiwami Steam page has been active since August 1st and boasts ‘uncapped framerates on PC.’
Recently, in an unexpected update. a gif was posted on the Yakuza Kiwami Steam page. This GIF confirms the game will be hitting Steam on February 19th!
As of yet, system requirements and pricing are yet to be announced. Steam’s description of the game currently reads:
‘1995, Kamurocho… Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss to protect his sworn brother, Akira Nishikiyama, and his childhood friend, Yumi.
2005… Akira Nishikiyama has become a changed man. Yumi is nowhere to be found. Ten billion yen has gone missing from the Tojo Clan’s coffers, putting the organization on the brink of civil war. And Kazuma Kiryu is released from prison to a world he no longer recognizes.
With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from Yakuza 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio by the series cast, Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate and most “extreme” version of the original vision of the series, now optimised for PC with 4K resolutions, uncapped framerates, customisable controls and ultra-widescreen support.’
Personally, I love the Yakuza series, having recently completed Yakuza 6 on PS4 I think it’s about time I started to play the Kiwami series of games… Let us know in the comments what you think, will you be getting Yakuza Kiwami on PC?
