About Yakuza Kiwami

About this game

Developed and published by SEGA.

Yakuza Kiwami is the first game of the iconic Yakuza series, and now that it's been remastered, you can revisit it or experience it for the first time with a much more modern feel! In this title, you'll step into the shoes of former yakuza lieutenant Kazuma Kiryu, who took the blame for the murders committed by his friend Akira Nishikiyama.

It's Been A While, Old Friend

After a whole decade in prison, Kiryu comes out to discover that Nishikiyama has become a powerful yakuza boss and that his childhood friend — Yumi — has gone missing. To make matters even worse, several gangs are on the hunt for 10 million yen that was previously owned by his organisation, the Tojo Clan.

Not Just Fights

Whenever life gets a bit rough for Kiryu, he can go take a moment in the streets or Kamurocho. There are several places to visit and explore, such as gambling spots, bowling, karaoke, or even go play some Mesuking — the card game! Help him relax from the stress.

Never A Dull Moment

If entertainment isn't your cup of tea for relaxing, perhaps one of the various side missions will be! Take down enemies with the four unique combat styles — Brawler, Beast Style, Rush, and Dragon — in street brawls! 

An Incentive

Win the challenges and battles to earn Completion Points, which can be used to get special items and character upgrades! This makes it very worth going and doing side missions. 

Surprise!

The brand-new Majima Everywhere challenge makes it so that Goro Majima will sporadically (and frequently) appear and challenge you! 

Even Better

Thanks to the remaster, you'll be able to enjoy the game even more, as it comes with enhanced gameplay and an expanded cinematic story. Additionally, it now supports 4K resolutions, uncapped framerates, customisable controls, and even ultra-widescreen support!

90 / 100
"After all these years, Yakuza Kiwami shows that it can work splendidly even on the PC platform. Still one of the best games in this series, with its rich story, intriguing...

PC Gamer

74 / 100
"Suffers in comparison to Yakuza 0, but is still a compelling drama and an important part of the series as a whole."

Metro GameCentral

70 / 100
"The original Yakuza has been remade into a sequel to its own prequel, but although it’s perfectly competent it feels outdated compared to the newer entries."

This is a remake of the first Yakuza title on PS2. It's from the ground up so it's not a copy and paste job, it uses the same engine Yakuza 0 does. A little bit repetitive and that makes it hard to binge, but the story more than makes up for it. Definitely worth the cost

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
After 14 years, the original Yakuza game in the popular franchise is back - and man does it look good! This remastered action-adventure features similar gameplay mechanics to the popular Yakuza 0, with just as many great side-missions, activities and street brawls to keep you gripped for hours.

The the beginning to an amazing series given new life. You should play Yakuza 0 first, but then go straight to this.

Not quite as good as Yakuza 0 but excellent. If you enjoyed Yazkua 0 or the series in general it is an easy buy. The story will repeat some ideas from 0 as 0 was made to help introduce the series and the characters in Yakuza 1 and 2. Good combat and controls. Wandering Kamurocho is always a pleasure. If you like action/fighting with RPG elements, you will love this game and the series in general.
