Yakuza’s PS4 remake is coming to the west

Yakuza Kiwami, the PS4 remake of the original 2005 game, is coming to PS4 in the west summer 2017 via publisher Deep Silver.

“Kiwami” means extreme in Japanese and this remake is not a remaster, but an entirely new game built from the ground up. As such, it will be in 1080p with 60fps and even the audio will be completely redone with largely the same voice actors reprising their roles.

It will also have roughly 30 minutes worth of new cutscenes. Plus your nemesis, the stylish Goro Majima, will pop up everywhere. So you can run into him at random locations, like convenience stores, and brawl with him.

Dreamfall Chapters gets PS4, Xbox One release date

The promised PS4 and Xbox One versions of Dreamfall Chapters will be released 24th March 2017.

Deep Silver will publish, at a cheaper £25/€30 price point. Included are all five episodes released on PC, spanning 13 story chapters in total.

Dreamfall Chapters began in 2013 with a Kickstarter campaign. It was what Ragnar Tornquist, former director of The Secret World at Funcom, did next. He created a new studio called Red Thread Games and went back to the game, The Longest Journey, he had become known for.

Persona 5 coming to Europe – courtesy of Deep Silver

Persona 5 will come out in Europe – and it’ll be published here by Deep Silver.

The news comes as a surprise, given Persona developer Atlus is owned by Sega, which has a European publishing operation of its own.

But Deep Silver, publisher of Saints Row, Dead Island and Homefront, has signed a European publishing agreement not just for Persona 5, but for multiple Atlus and Sega titles.
