The inaugural entry in the critically-acclaimed YAKUZA series first shed its light on the seedy underbelly of Japan and the criminal organizations that thrive there in 2006 on PlayStation 2. Players are introduced to the "Dragon of Dojima," Kazuma Kiryu, an up-and-coming yakuza who takes the fall for the murder of a crime boss, only to emerge from prison ten years later to a changed world.

"KIWAMI" means EXTREME.

In 2017, YAKUZA KIWAMI takes us back to the original entry point of the series, completely rebuilt from the ground up for the PlayStation 4.

With enhanced gameplay, an expanded cinematic story, the return of the battle styles from YAKUZA 0, more nightlife spots, and re-recorded audio presented in the original Japanese for the first time, YAKUZA KIWAMI is the ultimate and most "extreme" version of the original vision of the series for first-time players and long-time fans alike.
