Once something of an unofficial mascot for Sony’s PlayStation, the Yakuza series was finally published elsewhere when the Yakuza Remastered Collection came to Xbox and PC earlier this year. Of course, different platforms can result in different problems, and while Yakuza Remastered Collection always ran well on the PC, a new patch is making it run even better.
The collection bundles together Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 and updates the original PlayStation 3 graphics to fall more in line with modern games. The Yakuza series is known for its strangeness as well as it’s beat ’em up gameplay, and the Yakuza Remastered Collection doesn’t disappoint in either regard.
The new patch for the PC version of the game fixes a few glitches and user interface issues, but most impressively cuts down CPU usage by 30%. Yakuza Remastered Collection received generally positive reviews when it came to PC, and now players whose computers couldn’t quite handle the trilogy before have a reason to give it another try. Luckily, Steam will install the patch automatically upon launch for anyone who already owns the game.
The remastered collection gives gamers a chance to go back and experience some of the earlier Yakuza games. For those wanting to go back to other games in the series, there is now a fan-made english dub of Yakuza: Black Panther, a title that was never officially released in the west, but for everyone else, Yakuza Remastered Collection for PC performs better than ever thanks to the newest patch.
Yakuza Remastered Collection is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
