The inaugural entry in the critically-acclaimed YAKUZA series first shed its light on the seedy underbelly of Japan and the criminal organizations that thrive there in 2006 on PlayStation®2. Players are introduced to the “Dragon of Dojima,” Kazuma Kiryu, an up-and-coming yakuza who takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss, only to emerge from prison ten years later to a changed world.
“KIWAMI” means EXTREME.
In 2017, YAKUZA KIWAMI takes us back to the original entry point of the series, completely rebuilt from the ground up for the PlayStation®4. With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from YAKUZA 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio presented in the original Japanese for the first time, YAKUZA KIWAMI is the ultimate and most “extreme” version of the original vision of the series for first-time players and long-time fans alike.
