Sega bringing Yakuza 0 and Kiwami to PC

Along with Valkyria Chronicles 4

Sega is bringing three more Japanese games to Windows PC: Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Valkyria Chronicles 4. The publisher made the announcement today during PC Gamer’s PC Gaming Show at E3 2018.

Yakuza 0, a prequel to the Yakuza series, debuted in Japan on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in March 2015. Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the original Yakuza, which debuted in December 2005 on PlayStation 2 in Japan; it was released in January 2016 on PS3 and PS4 in Japan. While Sega has since brought both Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami stateside on PS4, this will be the first time that any entry in the long-running open-world franchise has been released on PC.

Both PC ports will support 4K resolution and an uncapped frame rate; Kiwami has been “remastered from the ground up” for PC, according to its Steam description. While that game is listed as “coming soon,” the PC version of Yakuza 0 is scheduled to be released Aug. 1. It’s already available for pre-order on Steam for $17.99, a 10 percent discount off the retail price of $19.99.

Sega also announced a PC version of Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest entry in the publisher’s well-liked franchise of tactical role-playing games. Valkyria Chronicles 4 is set for release Oct. 16 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; the PC version is scheduled to launch this fall on Steam.

Those three games are on the way to PC along with some ports that Sega previously announced: Shenmue 1 & 2 (which is also coming to PS4 and Xbox One) and Shining Resonance Refrain (a remaster of the 2014 PlayStation 3 game Shining Resonance).

Update: We’ve edited this article with additional details on release dates, along with Sega’s “Best of Japan on PC” trailer from the PC Gaming Show.
