Nice it's about time. Don't expect a game on par with 0 in content, it IS a ps2 remake after all (although they added a lot more in kiwami 2). That being said it's still a fun game.

Oh jeez, can't wait, triple dip on this one just like Yakuza 0, hopefully this one won't be far away of the other two Yakuzas already released on PS4 (Kiwami 2 and Y6)

Will pre-order this, appreciate Sega releasing these games on PC even though it took them so long..

Just seen on Reddit that Kiwami launches on February 19th?

Hopefully Sega release the remaining Yakuza games on PC, not as Epic Store exclusives!!

Cool, will probably get it day one, I've played 1 and 2 on the ps2 but it's so long ago I could only remember the intro and the ending, and the "I peacocked your mom" sidequest, but I think that's 2.

Some general notes.

Denuvo is gone, which, combined with the fact Catherine Classic and Shenmue 1+2 lacked it, seems to confirm that SEGA* is officially done using it.
*Specifically the mainline branch, Creative Assembly and possibly Sports Interactive look to be still be using it currently.


Lab42 is handling the port again.

The "Digital Manga" included with the Digital Deluxe edition is the "The Dragon's Path" motion comic series (the Icon on the Steam page is specifically issue 3.) made to promote Yakuza 0's initial PS4 localization. I'm not quite sure how this will be handled.

and most importantly, which also relates to the first point. The Dev Branch for 0 has been getting actively updated again, with the most recent change being on January 17, 2019.
This is just speculation on my part, but the fact that Kiwami no longer has Denuvo, Combined with this news, leads me to believe they will also be patching Denuvo out of 0 alongside whatever other changes (Probably fixing the lighting. Note that link has spoilers for a pivotal scene in 0.) this update is supposed to bring.
