Yakuza Kiwami Free DLC Schedule Revealed

Yakuza Kiwami, the high definition remake of the original Yakuza game, will be released onto the PlayStation 4 later this month and to celebrate its ‘next-gen’ arrival Deep Silver, in conjunction with SEGA, will be releasing a selection of DLC Content for FREE throughout September.

That’s right; throughout September Deep Silver will release a selection of DLC for FREE and better yet the content will automatically be patched into the main game each week with the DLC becoming usable after interacting with Bob Utsunomiya, the clown located underneath the Tenkaichi Street Gate.

Each week a new selection of DLC Content will be released (patched into the game) and a list of what to expect, and when, can be found below:

Yakuza Kiwami will follow the events of Kazuma Kiryu who attempts to put his life back together after spending 10 years in prison and being kicked out of the Yakuza clan.

Synopsis:Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza – the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn’t commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu’s clan expel him from the yakuza, but ¥10 billion (~$100 million) goes missing from the clan treasury. Worse yet, Kiryu’s childhood sweetheart is also nowhere to be found, and with the entirety of the Japanese underworld on the hunt for the missing cash, Kiryu is all but lost until he finds the orphan girl Haruka, searching for her aunt who shares the same name as Kiryu’s missing love. What follows from there is a web of betrayal, underworld politics, and redemption as nothing will stop Kiryu from regaining his honor.

Key Features:

  • A Family Patriarch’s Ransom of New Content – “Kiwami” literally translates to “extreme,” and the game was named that for good reason. Not just a simple graphical upgrade, Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game’s plot and creating common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0. There’s also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests, combat updates, re-recorded Japanese dialogue, and more to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
  • A Place for Newcomers and Veterans – Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate bridge in the series: newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
  • But it was me! Majima! – Completely new to Kiwami is the “Majima Everywhere” system, where the series’ deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We’re talking “popping out of a goofy costume” levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu’s chief rival.
  • Extreme Revitalization – Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA’s commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.

Yakuza Kiwami will be released on to the PlayStation 4 in both digital and physical versions from the 29th August 2017 within Europe. The game will also receive a ‘Limited Run’ Steelbook edition featuring glorious artwork and is available to pre-order from a variety of retailers within the UK and Europe.
