Yakuza Kiwami DLC Intel Dropped
Hey guys! I’m back once again, with…you know? None other than Yakuza Kiwami news! Now for those of you who already pre-ordered the game pay attention because aside from the awesome goodies you’ll be awarded, Kiwami has a ton of DLC to spice things up! But what else would you expect from Sega’s masterpiece of a series? It’s never a dull moment with Yakuza. Are you still on the fence about getting this latest Yakuza video game? Well, hear me out dear sitters of the fence!
First off mark your calendars for September 2017 because the DLC will be patched into the game on each of the release dates. That’s right folks! You can skip the PlayStation store altogether because not only is the DLC patched into the game but you can access it via the ever so random clown of Kamurocho Bob Utsunomiya. So just head to Tenkaichi Street and hit up old Bob to collect the goods.
And speaking of the goods here’s a neatly compiled list to keep your gaming vision intact.

- 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 PlayStation 4 physically and digitally on Aug. 29 for $29.99 (with commensurate European pricing).
