Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 were previously only available for the PS3 console but now the three games are getting re-released for the PS4. The three games won’t just be straight ports though because they will actually be full HD remasters.
The latest issue of Famitsu magazine in Japan made this exciting announcement. The games will have an increase in resolution as well as a better frame rate. So far, the announcement is only for Japan so we will have to wait later if all three games are coming out in the West.
Anyway, Yakuza 3 PS4 is out first in Japan on August 9th, 2018. After that, the remaster of Yakuza 4 is coming next in the Fall. Lastly, Yakuza 5 will be released by early 2019 on the PS4 to complete the series.
Yakuza 3 and Yakuza 4 both came out to the West in both physical and digital formats. Yakuza 5 took a long time to come out but finally became a digital only title in the West back in 2015. It’s cool they are re-releasing Yakuza 5 on PS4 since most people did not play that game since it was a very late PS3 exclusive at the time.
