What’s Changed in The Yakuza Remastered Collection?
The Yakuza Remastered
Collection is far from a typical console generation port. In
addition to graphical and performance upgrades (720p –> 1080p at 30fps –>
60fps), all three games have gone through a rigorous re-localization process.
The English scripts for each game have been reviewed, revised, and even
rewritten in some cases, and content previously cut from the western releases
of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5
have been re-added in The Yakuza Remastered Collection.
In Yakuza 3, this
means the Mahjong, Shogi, Massage Parlor, and ever-popular Cabaret minigames,
as well as a collection of Substories cut from the original release, are now
available in the West for the first time!
Several quality-of-life changes have also been added for
each release in the collection, including a Substory tracker on the map and the
ability to toggle between English and Japanese written lyrics during Karaoke.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection Release Details:
The Yakuza Remastered Collection
