According to the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, SEGA plans to release remastered versions of previous Yakuza installments (Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5) for the Playstation 4 with improved resolution and frame rates. No further news on if SEGA is planning to localize the remastered versions to the West. All three titles are scheduled for release in 2018 and 2019 starting with Yakuza 3 on August 9th for 3,990 yen including a download code & soundtrack.
Here is the Japanese release schedule for the other titles.
- Yakuza 4 – Fall 2018
- Yakuza 5 – Spring 2019
I am happy to see that SEGA is pushing forward with the demand of remastering more Yakuza games and a great opportunity for fans to play Yakuza 3 in it’s original format if it gets localized. How do you guys feel about this news? Feel free to post your thoughts on the comment section below.

I would buy them! =)
Glad they are remastering rather than remaking them in the Dragon engine, was not a fan of that combat system.
Besides, if this means 1080p and 60 fps, then so much yes! Would never have gotten that with the Dragon engine.
Hopefully this means Yakuza 5 will FINALLY have a physical release.
This is great news!! Can’t wait!
please don’t be digital only…
YES! I’m personally really happy about this, as I never had a PS2 and have been getting each PS4 release. I’m hoping this won’t be digital only either, but that fact that Shenmue I & II are getting a physical compilation makes me think this will be physical releases too. I’d actually prefer a disc compilation of these.
Please come to the west soon!
Oh my god, oh my god, this is absolutely amazing, First Valkyria Chroniclesmy 2nd favorite of all time and now Yakuza 4 is my 3rd favorite game of all time are getting remaster for the PS4, now all i need is a remaster for Sonic Unleashed, and my holy trinity of game will be complete, Sega, really talk, still is my number 1 wishlist from you, so please make it happen, i will be incredibly upset if we don’t get a remaster of Unleashed, I NEED THIS!!!!!!!!
You’re right, a remaster of Unleashed would be nice, it’s still a pretty game even now…
this is awesome!
Yakuza3 is a soundtrack download code; so the game is still disc. !
1080p/60fps remasters, original game PS3 versions; that is awesome!
(I was not a fan of the 1080p/30 RGG6 dragon engine on RGG6 and Kiwami2.
60fps on Ishin, Zero, and Kiwami1 is golden!)
