With the recent success of the Yakuza series, it’s no surprise that Sega is going back to remaster some of the older titles. Announced via Gematsu earlier today, remasters have been announced for Yakuza 3, 4, and 5. The tentative schedule is as follows:
- Yakuza 3 – August 9th
- Yakuza 4 – Fall 2018
- Yakuza 5 – Spring 2019
Note that these dates are for the Japanese releases. At this time we’re unsure if and/or when they will come to the US and other markets.
The Yakuza series has been gaining a greater appreciation and resulting sales lately, especially after Yakuza 6 finally released in the West. For fans of the series, this is great news as it means nearly the entire series will be playable on the PS4 at 1080p/60fps. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about potential releases in the West.
