Complete Kazuma Kiryu’s epic journey on PS4 with Yakuza 5 Remastered, out today

The physical release of The Yakuza Remastered Collection includes a PS3 box for Yakuza 5 to complete your run of the Sega franchise

The entire Yakuza Remastered Collection is now available on PlayStation 4 in both physical and digital formats!
To celebrate the launch, and the momentous occasion of Yakuza 0-6 now all available on PlayStation 4 (Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, Yakuza 5 Remastered, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life), we’ve released a Dynamic Theme featuring series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu’s iconic dragon tattoo, available for free to all owners of The Yakuza Remastered Collection*. Bring the spirit of the dragon home to your PS4 today!
Also, Yakuza 5 director Masayoshi Yokoyama, Takaya Kuroda (voice actor for Kiryu), and Hidenari Ugaki (voice actor for Majima) have a special message for all of our Western Yakuza fans.

I’d also like to take a moment to introduce the physical bundle for The Yakuza Remastered Collection, which includes Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 Remastered.
Yakuza Remastered Collection on PS4
This bundle comes in a striking red digipack featuring series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu’s signature dragon tattoo, but it also comes with one non-traditional item for longtime series fans.
That’s right – for those who may not know, Yakuza 5 was a digital-only title when it released in the West on the PlayStation 3, which means series collectors had a hole in their physical library where their Yakuza 5 case may have gone.
With The Yakuza Remastered Collection, we saw an opportunity to fix that, so every Day One edition of the bundle comes with a PS3 case featuring the Western cover art and English logo for Yakuza 5!
We’re so happy to continue to expand this series for our Western fans – look forward to more from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios in the near future, including Yakuza: Like a Dragon when it releases later this year!
*The Yakuza Remastered Collection Dynamic Theme is only available with digital purchases of the Yakuza Remastered Collection on PlayStation Store. The Theme needs to be downloaded separately from PlayStation Store.

  • Mine arrived today, the PS3 case is brilliant. Thank you so much for this journey Sega. You did a great job the past 5 years bringing all these great games from this series west while also completing it and that all the saga can be played on one console now.

  • I just want to drive more taxis… I don’t know why that bit is so addictive…

  • Would’ve liked to see a physical copy of Yakuza 5 for PS3, a case doesn’t really preserve the game for the future…

    • No but this re-release and completely uncut version on PS4 will do. If you got the physical release of this for PS4 with the PS3 case, then you have the game on PS4 lol. The PS3 case was just a funny bonus to help complete a physically displayed collection of the original releases.

    • The remasters of Yakuza 3 and 4 are apparently not “completely uncut” so I doubt that would be the case for Yakuza 5.

  • While I love the fact that people can now play the entire Kiryu saga on PS4 (well, excluding Dead Souls/Of the End spin-off), let me express my sincere hope that we’ll see one day an English release of Kurohyou 1&2 (remastered/remade), Kenzan! (remastered) & Ishin…

    Now for really ridiculous hopes – allow me to get wild like Majima: 1&2 HD Edition (they are quite different to Kiwami releases and I prefer their soundtracks) and all the companion apps for Vita :D

  • “…available for free to all owners of The Yakuza Remastered Collection”??? What a lie! It tells me “Not available for purchase”. Installed all games from physical copy and still nothing.
