Let's Play Yakuza

General Information

After the announcement of a western release for the three remastered PS3 Yakuza games, I began replaying this series and wanted to spread the love for this awesome series and encourage more people to try and play the various games within.  What better way to spur interest and curiosity than by creating and hosting a Let's Play event?  This event was created to encourage players, both newcomers and series veterans, to try the various games within the Yakuza series (and spin offs) as well as earn special mahjong tiles (trophies) for expanding and completing additional games they may or may not have tried yet.  Because of this, there is no deadline for completion or entering and it's encouraged not to rush these games but to enjoy them and explore the living worlds and the wealth of bonus content within at your own pace.  If you have any interest in this series, I highly recommend picking up a copy and joining us in playing through Yakuza!  You can even earn custom Mahjong pieces for completing games in the series and you can get some even if you've already completed games in the series!

 

Feel free to leave any comments or feedback that you feel could help benefit the let's play!  Also, please post any updates you may have with the event as I will not be able to monitor the participants so if you've made progress and want to get credited or share with everyone else, please post!  The only exception is if I add additional challenges or trophies, in which case I will check the participants prior to adding it (though after adding it, please update if you achieve it).  Also, please let me know if your PSN profile does not match your Forum profile and which name you want on your custom mahjong piece.

 

For the sake of enjoyment and completion, feel free to ask or offer help.  However, please keep spoilers hidden for those who care about the storyline.  Thanks!

 

The Goal

The goal for this event is to expose more people to the Yakuza series as well as encourage those who are interested or have played previously to resume playing the games and attempt to complete all of the games in the series.  As additional games are released, they will be added to the event (such as Yakuza 7 and the rumored translated version of Ishin).

 

Kazuma's Chronicles

Below is a list of all eligible games, whether they're included in the Yakuza series or as a spin off.  If a game is on multiple platforms, both the PS3 and PS4 version are eligible.

Spoiler

Main Series

  • Yakuza 0
  • Yakuza HD (Japanese PS3)
  • Yakuza 2 HD (Japanese PS3)
  • Yakuza Kiwami
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2
  • Yakuza 3
  • Yakuza 4
  • Yakuza 5
  • Yakuza 6
  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Ryu Ga Gotoku 7)

 

Spin Offs

  • Yakuza: Dead Souls
  • Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise
  • Judgment
  • Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin

 

Game Guide Scrolls

Below is a list of guides that may help you complete the games in the let's play.  Keep in mind that not all games have guides yet.

 

Custom Mahjong Pieces

As a completion incentive, you can earn custom Mahjong pieces I've made for each of the available games in the Let's Play!  If the games are multiplatform, you can earn them with either the PS3 or PS4 version.  Once you've completed the game, posted the update and I have verified it, I will give you your own custom Mahjong piece!  Below are samples of each game's piece.

@Inuty Congratulations on becoming the first one to be recognized by Majima!  That's an incredible effort, awesome job!  Also, I didn't forget Kenzan but I didn't include it because it doesn't have trophies so it's difficult to verify completion.  However, I may add a tile for it later if there's interest and there's an easy way to verify completion.  Thanks for your interest in the let's play!

Now this is a Let's Play event I can get behind! :D I'm well on my way to completing the whole series as you can see below. I'll be starting Kiwami 2 shortly.

I think it's a shame Yakuza 1 & 2 aren't included on the list of eligible games in some form. The PS3 remasters weren't released in the west of course, but neither was Ishin. Also, I just figured I'd mention that Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise has some guides on this site you could include in the 'Game Guide Scrolls' section. :ninja:

Great idea. I have Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2 on my shelf and can't wait to get into this incredible series. But to trully experience game mechanics I want first to complete Shenmue 1 a 2, before I start with this big series (meanwhile Sega will launch 4,5,6 on disc, so nothing stops me). So please add me too, but it is possible (due to work), that I complete first Yakuza game in the end of this year or in start of the next one.

Thank You.

Sign me up, chief! I've platted 4 already, and will be aiming to plat 0, Kiwami, Kiwami 2, 3, 5, 6, Judgment, Dead Souls, and Fist of the North Star by Christmas next year :-)

Wow, nice completions!  Initially, I figured Yakuza 1/2 HD could count towards Kiwami/Kiwami 2, but after doing a bit more research, I've realized they're quite different so I've taken your advice and added them to the list.  Thanks for the tips and the suggestions!  Much appreciated, you're added!

Thanks!  I'm glad you're interested in the series!  Shenmue is definitely worth playing though.  Some have likened Yakuza as a spiritual successor to Shenmue but both are awesome games worth playing.  Whenever you're ready to play, you've been added to the event!  No rush, enjoy Shenmue and try out the series when you're ready.

Here are the promised custom Mahjong titles!  If you're not yet part of the event and have some Yakuza series plats, feel free to post and join to get your own!  Also let me know when you guys get additional platinums so I can generate additional custom Mahjong tiles for you!  Keep in mind that if you want to use this in your signature, I would advise clicking it once you paste it in and changing the resolution to 240x320 or 120x160.

If you would prefer your PSN name instead of your forum name, please let me know and I'll re-do these tiles for you.

Thanks for the cool-looking Mahjong tiles, @TomoTakino! I'm glad you also made some for the Yakuza 1 & 2 remasters. :D I'll put them in my forum profile's 'About Me' section. I prefer my forum name over my PSN name, so it's all good. :)
