The critically-acclaimed Yakuza Kiwami is now available on PC via Steam.

The PC port of the game has been remastered ‘from the ground up’ and is now available in 4K with uncapped framerates and ultra-widescreen support. There’s also more in-game content, such as enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, and re-recorded audio by the series cast.

Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of Yakuza, the first ever game in the popular Yakuza series. The game follows Kazuma Kiryu, an aspiring yakuza. Kiryu takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss in order to protect his friend, Akira Nishikiyama, and is sent to jail.

Ten years later, Kiryu is granted parole, and discovers the world is not the same as he left it. Nishikiyama has been changed by power, Kiryu’s childhood friend Yumi has gone missing, and ten billion yen has been stolen from the Tojo Clan. It’s up to Kiryu to work out what’s going on and fix it.

Lab42 Games, the studio who worked with SEGA on porting the game to PC, say they hope everyone enjoys playing it as much as they enjoyed working on it.

There’s also an interesting gameplay system called ‘Majima Everywhere’. In Majima Everywhere, Kiryu’s rival, Goro Majima, will randomly appear and challenge Kiryu to a fight. The fun part is that Majima can appear anywhere, including just on the street and during minigames. Defeating Majima will increase the player’s rank and unlock new abilities.

Yakuza Kiwami is now available on Steam for just $19.99.
