Streets of Kamurocho is out. This is a combination of the very popular Streets of Rage brawler, and the Yakuza franchise. I’m astonished on how right this crossover feels, and yet how it hasn’t been done before.
Streets of Kamurocho came out as one of four free games from the Sega 60th anniversary celebration. It also doesn’t hurt that Yakuza: Like a Dragon is scheduled to come out next month.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and I’m back from my first day of E3 2019.
E3 has been crazy, I’ve dived in head first, and got to see quite a few things on day one, as well as set up a few things for the future. But the good news is my day was packed. Just to give you an idea of how I view these games, I won’t try to be harsh on games. Almost everything here is very early, alpha, pre-alpha and more. So I’ll talk about some complaints but really, this is a hype event, and let’s give companies the benefit of the doubt when possible.
Played on Windows
Also Available on PlayStation 4. Original version (Yakuza 2) on PlayStation 2.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the third game chronologically in the Yakuza Series. It is also is the third Yakuza game released on PC in under 12 months. With the rate that Sega is releasing these titles players are getting a wealth of Yakuza content, but can Yakuza Kiwami 2 stand up to the two games that already came before it?
Played on Windows. Also Available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 (Japan Only).
Last year, I awarded Yakuza 0 the game of the year for 2018. I wouldn’t have to wait very long for a follow-up, as the port of Yakuza Kiwami has now reached the PC just six months later. This is the direct sequel to Yakuza 0, so it’s time to see if it lives up to that game.
