Yakuza Restoration on the PS3 will have “a little bonus” for fans


The guys over at Siliconera recently spoke to Yakuza producer and all around tan man Toshihiro Nagoshi about the differences between Yakuza Restoration on the Playstation 3 vs the Playstation 4. He stated the the game will only differ visually since the Playstation 4 has 10x more power than the Playstation 3. He stated they have always intended for this title to be a launch game on Playstation 4 and worked hard in getting it ready.

Even though the Playstation 3 version won’t have as smooth framrate or fancy effects like the Playstation 4 version, it will have a ‘a little bonus’ for fans that have save data from previous Yakuza games. Not bad, right? Demo for Yakuza Restoration is now on the Japanese PSN store, game comes out over there on February 22nd. No Western release plans have been announced.

Yakuza Restoration will run at 60fps on Playstation 4

This week’s Dengeki Playstation magazine has confirmed that the Playstation 4 version of Yakuza Restoration will run at a smooth 60 FPS.

Other than that the game will also support some special features on the Dualshock 4 controller. You can control the map using the touchpad and the light bar on the controller flashes when taking damage. Not as huge as 60 frames per second, but still nice.

The game supports Remote Play and also has a special streaming feature that shows viewer comments on the screen, sorta how they do it on NicoNico Live. But that isn’t everything, the more comments the quicker your recovery time when you’re down and also the rate your parameters fill up.

Yakuza Restoration is coming to both PS3 and PS4 on February 22nd in Japan. No Western release plans have been announced.

Haruka cleans your home in Yakuza Restoration


Haruka has been in the Yakuza franchise since the first title came out on the Playstation 2 back in 2005 and is a main character of the franchise. In this title, the character Ryoma Sakamoto (played by Kiryu Kazuma) meets Haruka (yes, they are keeping her name) after saving her from a incident (that isn’t revealed). After that, she decides to let him live with her. Yeah, even she’s confused in the picture above.
