Yakuza Kiwami is available to pre-order digitally right now courtesy of SEGA and Deep Silver, for those that do choose to go the digital route with their pre-order can expect to receive something extra to enjoy in the form of a free theme. The theme features some familiar stone-faced Yakuza bros in Kazuma Kiryu and Akira Nishikiyama.

Pre-orders/first run copies of the physical version will come packaged in a stunning SteelBook®.
Yakuza Kiwami provides an excellent starting point for those who have always heard about the series but have yet to try it. It preserves the charm of old-school, PS2-era beat-em-up gameplay, but deftly combines it with a hard-boiled crime drama punctuated with the liveliness of Kamurocho – the fictional red-light district of Tokyo the game is set in – and all the distractions that a red-light district can offer.
