Yakuza Kiwami finally releases in the US August 29

Yakuza Kiwami, a remake of the first game in the series, was released in Japan in January of last year. Any hope of ever seeing it stateside was basically nonexistent until the fine folks of Playstation’s third party division announced that Yakuza 0, Kiwami, and 6 would all be getting worldwide releases. Yakuza 0 came out earlier this year and we no know that Kiwami will be released on August 29 with a price tag of $29.99. Much like with Yakuza 0, if you pre-order the game it comes as a special edition though this time it’s simply a steelbook version.

If you think you and your wallet have a pretty special relationship or that there is at least a decent friendship there, you better get it something nice because August is absolutely packed.  I almost hope that the rumored September release for Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t true at this point.

The self proclaimed “Mad Trophy Titan”, Erik started Tojo Punch with absolutely no idea what to do with a website or an Author’s Bio area; a trend that continues to this day. He has a fanatical devotion to the Beat ‘Em Up genre, an unrequited love for the Yakuza series, and a deep-seated hatred for “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot”.
