SEGA brings the “Yakuza” series and “Valkyria Chronicles 4” to PC starting in August
SEGA announced at E3 this week that several of their Japanese-developed titles will finally be making the jump to PC.
In a video titled “Best of Japan on PC”, SEGA revealed that Yakuza Zero, Yakuza Kiwami and Valkyria Chronicles 4 would be coming soon to PC, with Yakuza Zero releasing via Steam on 1 August. All three were previously exclusive to PlayStation platforms.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 and the Yakuza titles join the previously announced PC ports of other Japanese titles Shining Resonance Refrain and Shenmue I & II. SEGA has made an obvious push to make many of their console titles available on PC, everything from Sonic Lost World to the first Bayonetta.
SEGA also confirmed that Yakuza Zero is playable in 4K at 60 fps, and that the frame rate is uncapped for those with truly “master race”-level setups.
Given SEGA’s open attitude towards the modding community, I fully expect someone let me use Kazuma Kiryu to beat the hell out of Lan Di. No, scratch that. Somebody please transform Yakuza into a Streets of Rage game! I’m too lazy to do it myself, but some of you guys out there are miracle-workers.
Yakuza Zero releases on Steam August 1 for just $19.99 and is available to preorder now. Those who pre-order will receive a 10% discount along with a digital manga, wallpapers, and avatars.
There is not yet a release date for either Yakuza: Kiwamior Valkyria Chronicles 4.
