But you could argue that COD is full of different settings and stories, too. Are the Yakuza games all in the same open world city?

Kamurocho appears in every Yakuza game and Judgment, but it isn't always the main city (for example, most of Like a Dragon is spent in Yokohama, and 5 has five cities and 5 characters) and it is detailed to varying degrees and has different substories, shops, and activities. For example, Yakuza 4 is the only game in the series to have a moderately detailed rooftop and underground system.

Yes. It will be, but the saves won't move over so you'll have to start all over again if you start playing the game on the PS4 now.


Thanks for the info. In that case. I’ll get the Xbox version instead.

Yep it will be a free upgrade. But you won't be able to transfer your PS4 save data so you'll need to wait for the PS5 upgrade unless you want to start over.

Series X plays MUCH better. Like I'm running it on a 1080p tv but the game is smooth. On the One, it was often times choppy.

 

Also load times, load times are infinitely better on the Series X. For this game makes a world of difference because there are a lot of them. I can't really tell graphical enhancements, but framerate and load times are all worth it.

Like A Dragon is amazing!     i am playing on xbox series x, 4k normal mode, (aka 1440p/60) its super sharp and buttery smooth!    I was hesitant to play Yakuza RPG, though i prefer regular Yakuza action games; this RPG is superb!       lets you really sink in and enjoy the Yakuza world; Yokohama is a wonderfully fresh new area to play in and explore.

How is Judgment? I only played the original Yakuza on the PS2.

Good though I feel the Yakuza games are better. Still pretty fun and a decent enough story with good characters.

I think it’s great! It’s what got me into the yakuza games, actually. I’d say it was probably a little less “seedy” than the yakuza entries, but it was definitely interesting seeing the city from the perspective of someone other than a mafia member.

Here's hoping we get a Yakuza Ishin localization from Sega go support them and buy Yaz: Like a Dragon! We seriously need more Samurai games released!

probably a very long shot but does anyone here still have gcu that is willing to help me get a xbox copy with the steelbook?

The load times killed my ability to play it on the One. It was eating up so much time and I thought it froze a few times. I ended up selling it off and getting it for PC which was much smoother. The game really benefits from an SSD.

I've really had no issues running the game on my One X. Load times are super quick, no freezing or stuttering really (maybe once or twice) and the graphics look great. I'm honestly hard pressed to believe it can run that much better on the Series S/X.

Oh ok then I guess I’ll be fine finishing the game on ps5. If the graphics were actually noticeably better then I’d wait for the upgrade

Considering the awesome reception Digimon Cyber Sleuth got in the west (where it even caused a ps4 rerelease to happen in Japan) I'm hoping while it doesn't have the nostalgia factor, that Yakuza gets the same love it deserves too!

Ok, stupid question. I want to grab this and stash it for PS5. I'm looking at the Best Buy page, but it doesn't say anything about the steelbook. Thoughts?

Add it to you cart to see the steelbook. The desktop site does show it. You are probably not seeing it because you ate using the mobile app.

The steelbook shows up for me but for store pickup only. No shipping available anymore.

I can confirm I'm using the bestbuy app game says available for delivery but Steelbook says curbside pickup only. Just a heads up in California, looks like heavily impacted Covid counties have paused in store shopping again.

 

Edit: was able to switch to delivery after checkout

Yeah my steelbook is pickup too. Kinda don't want to mess with it though. I'll see what happens.

After all that I checked again last night and both were available for shipping. Yakuza shipped but the steelbook still says preparing to ship.

Yeah, I ordered mine on Friday and the steelbook (and God of War for $6.99) got here on Saturday.  The actual game should be delivered today.  Got the option for free overnight delivery for some reason so I took it, even though I didn't really need it.
