SEGA released a new action-packed trailer for Yakuza Kiwami, the HD remake of the original Yakuza. The new trailer shows off some of the fun activities players can indulge in to pass the time in Yakuza Kiwami.
It should come as no surprise that the streets are filled with thugs who are just asking for a beat down, but luckily Kiryu is equipped with four deadly fighting techniques waiting to be unleashed. Educate enemies in the art of fisticuffs with the balanced Brawler, all-powerful Beast, lightning-quick Rush, and unstoppable Dragon styles. Once the riffraff has been dealt with, cool off by exploring the various vices that Kamurocho offers. Classic minigames like Mahjong, pool, and karaoke are back, but new distractions like Pocket Circuit car racing, new hostesses, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, and more can be enjoyed as Kiryu passes the time between fights.
If you want to learn about the history, characters, and families in the series, you can check out the Yakuza Experience website, a Yakuza portal where the world of Yakuza can be explored via an interactive timeline and character map. The site also features a 10-issue digital comic, starting with some of the key events of Yakuza 0 and taking you along for the ride all the way up to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.
Yakuza Kiwami releases on the 29th of August and will be available for $29.99.
