Yakuza: Ishin

Sega updated the official Yakuza: Ishin website today with new details and screenshots of the game’s PlayStation 4 version.

The PlayStation 4 version is rendered in full HD 1080p. The textures and feel, such as a character’s facial expressions or clothes, have been significantly enhanced.

At 60 frames per second, the PlayStation 4 version is rendered at twice the frames of the PlayStation 3 version (which we can thus presume is 30 frames).

In the map screen, the DualShock 4 controller’s touchpad can be used to scroll across the map. And during battle, the light bar shines when you attack or take damage.

After you clear the game’s story and arena play spot, you’ll unlock the “Bakumatsu Tour” mode, which works with PlayStation 4’s Share feature. With the push of the Share button, players can live broadcast their game, or post video clips and screenshots. During a broadcast, viewer comments will be displayed in the game in real time. In the arena, if a certain number of comments are displayed, there are special effects that can occur like you’ll recover quicker from being knocked down, or build up heat faster.

Unlike PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza: Ishin does not require pre-play installation on PlayStation 4. Due to the system’s infrastructure, the game will install while you play, and there’s almost no wait time before you can start.

Load times are also considerably reduced in the PlayStation 4 version. And thanks to Remote Play, you can play the game on the go with your PS Vita.

Yakuza: Ishin is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 22 in Japan. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

      Tomorrow, people will be asking where their 4K games are :/

        I already want 4k games lol i dont think we can afford it tho._.

          I highly doubt we will see 4k supported games on consoles anytime soon. Most likely not on this generation of consoles.

          Considering most developers are still bickering about 60 fps versus 30 fps on 1080p, and some games can’t even do that… Yeah…

            I understand we wont get 4k gaming this gen . Dont mean i Dont want it tho.

      • Budgiecat

    Looks like there is an upgrade programme for this game like there was for COD/Assassin’s Creed etc.. If you get the PS3 version you can upgrade to the PS4 version for 1000 yen.

    Oh yeah, mandatory installs. When I finally had the chance to boot up my PS3, after years of hearing people whining about it. I finally understood. I’d picked up some games I’ve bee wanting for ever, Yakuza 4, Ar Tonelico Qoqa, and Resonance of Fate. Oh man, those installs. I think Resonance of Fate had the shortest one though and then due to limited HDD space, ugh needless to say… I’m happy things were changed up with PS4.

    I’m also glad some social features are being pushed. Though the comment thing confuses me. Are the comments pre-canned? Like a “Go Kiryu go” or is it just the sentiment, with the words customizable?
