Sega bringing Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 to the West with Yakuza Remastered Collection

Sega is bringing the remastered versions of Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5 to the West, starting Tuesday. That trio of games — which were previously released on PlayStation 4 in Japan — is coming stateside as part of The Yakuza Remastered Collection.

The Yakuza Remastered Collection includes all three games running in 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second. Sega says that The Yakuza Remastered Collection also delivers a “rigorous re-localization” of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5. “The English scripts for each game have been reviewed, revised, and even rewritten in some cases,” Sega said in a news release, “and content previously cut from the Western releases of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 have been re-added in The Yakuza Remastered Collection.”

That previously cut content includes things like mahjong, shogi, the massage parlor, and Cabaret minigames, “as well as a collection of substories cut from the original release.” Players can also play karaoke songs in English now.

The three games included in The Yakuza Remastered Collection will roll out over time. Yakuza 3 is available on PS4 now, while Yakuza 4 will be available on Oct. 29, and Yakuza 5 will be available on Feb. 11, 2020.

Sega will also release a physical version of The Yakuza Remastered Collection on Feb. 11, 2020. The two-disc set will come in a special package featuring a red collectible case emblazoned with Kiryu’s dragon tattoo and a PlayStation 3-style case for Yakuza 5, which was previously only available digitally. Here’s a look at that physical package:
