Yakuza Kiwami Majima

The Steam page for Yakuza Kiwami went up a long while back and the wait, at least for some users, has been a bit unbearable. Thankfully, development of the PC release has seemingly wrapped up because a release date was finally revealed and it is February 19, 2019.

For $19.99, you too can experience the ending of the beginning of the franchise, since Kiwami picks up after the events that began the beginning in Yakuza 0, which came out on PC a few months ago.

We have reviews up here at Total Gaming Network for both Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami. Sure, these reviews are for the PlayStation 4 versions of the game, but they should still mostly apply to the PC releases. I just wish the images for both reviews were still around because there was some good stuff there.

Spoiler for those who don't want to read the reviews: They're both amazing games and you should play them! You should probably play Yakuza 0 first though.

Get ready to embark on a journey with the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, to experience the extreme action and drama of the Yakuza series, now fully optimised for PC. Watch the brand-new trailer here.

One of SEGA’s most beloved Japanese franchises will be launching yet another great classic on PC next month. Yakuza Kiwami brings a unique and enjoyable experience for veterans, as well as newcomers to the series. With the successful PC release of prequel Yakuza 0 in 2018, fans will soon be able to continue the popular story about Japan’s criminal underworld, set 17 years later. Yakuza Kiwami is now available for digital pre-order on Steam for £14.99 / $19.99 / €19.99, including a 10% discount and exclusive bonus content, like avatars, wallpapers and a digital manga.
