The producer of SEGA’s Yakuza series is considering making HD Remasters of the PS2 and PS3 Era numbered games in the series.
Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi revealed during a live stream earlier this week that Yakuza: Kiwami has proved to be very popular as it sold more than half a million copies in Japan and across Asia. This has made Sega think about options for remaking and remastering Yakuza 2, 3, 4 and 5 for PlayStation 4.
Yakuza 6 has long been described as the end of the road for series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, but fans might take hope from the producer’s comments that they might get to step into Kamurocho’s shoes once again.
It should be kept in mind that Nagoshi has not made any promises, just because Sega is considering a remaster of the aforementioned titles for PlayStation 4 doesn’t mean that it’s going to go through with it.
This is great news for fans of the series, as despite the producer not promising this will happen, it shows how plans of the series is ongoing and that it could happen in the future. Fans of the series can enjoy a game in the series if they have PlayStation Plus, as in both NA and EU, you can get Yakuza 5 if you are a member of the program.
