Yakuza Kiwami is the latest entry in the long-running series, but it’s actually a complete remake of the original game on PS2. This means a total graphical overhaul that has the game running on the same engine used for Yakuza Zero, on top of additions like new story scenes, new minigames, and more. Kiwami truly is the best example of how far the series has come since its first release in 2005. Although Yakuza was certainly impressive for its time, it hasn’t aged the best, especially graphically. We’ll be comparing some screenshots of different aspects of the game, like cutscenes and combat to show the difference between Yakuza on PS2 and Kiwami on PS4.
