Kiwi release date announced for Yakuza Kiwami on PlayStation 4

By Damian Seeto

After the successful release of Yakuza 0 earlier this year,  Yakuza Kiwami is also coming out to the West. The New Zealand release date was announced today.  For Kiwi gamers, you will be able to play Yakuza Kiwami on August 29th, 2017 exclusively on the PlayStation 4. It will retail for a price of $89.95 NZD.  For a limited time, those who pre-order or get the game early will be able to own the stunning SteelBook version of it. This is limited to only first-run print copies so don't hesitate to order if you don't want to miss out on it.  Kiwami is the HD remake of the first ever Yakuza game that came out on the PS2 many years ago. Not many people played the first games in the series, so now is your chance to catch up.  Not only does this game have a graphical upgrade, but it also includes 30 minutes of additional cutscenes. There are also loads more mini-games and activities added this time around.  The game runs at 1080p and 60fps. Much like other games in the series, the audio is in Japanese with English subtitles for you to read. Kiwami serves as an excellent follow-up if you played Yakuza 0 earlier this year.
