    Yakuza fans will soon be able to experience the full Yakuza mainline series on a single system, as SEGA has announced that they'll be remastering Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 for the PlayStation 4. The third game in the series will kick off the line of remasters, releasing exclusively for the PS4 on August 9th, while 4 will follow this fall, and 5 will release sometime in spring of 2019. These versions of the games will have improved framerate and resolution compared to their original PS3 releases. At this time, there is no western confirmation, but as SEGA recently revealed Yakuza Kiwami 2 to be receiving an English localization, there is a possibility that these upcoming titles will be released in the west. Once these games are available, fans will be able to play Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 3, 4, 5, and 6, all on the PlayStation 4.

    Don't see the need for a remaster since the new Yakuza isn't graphicly that different from the older titles. Just a quick money grab it seems to me

    Never played any yakuza title, is this any different, aside from the story and place, from gta?

    Totally different. It is more similar to Shenmue as an example

    Oh my god, YES!!!
    I remember how Yakuza 3 had framerate issues on the PS3, so i'm all in for a remaster!!
    Even though they are just "enhanced ports" and not something like Kiwami, they are good enough to satisfy my desires :3

    YES, THANK YOU! The remaster is worth it alone for how hard to find and expensive these games are!

    This generation of consoles tends to be written in a history as Age of Remasters.

    Thats the trend. When ps5 comes out, yakuza 3,4,5,6 definitive edition comes out shortly after yakuza 7 is announced. Then itll be a collection.

    I would rather have the 3rd game available on the PS3 digital store.

    Thank goodness, I've been trying to find Yakuza 3 for less than $70 for a while now.

    I will buy the most expensive edition of every one they bring to America! The Yakuza games are the best video games in the world! I would say 4 is my favorite and you have to fight Amon in all of them!

    Yes!
    Nice, I've never actually played 3 - I hope they return the cut content if they bring it to the US!
