In that case you'd better start with Yakuza 0. Kiwami is much weaker than 0 in many aspects, and 0 is before Kiwami (1) on the timeline.

Why not Yakuza 0?

So is August 29 the US/World release or just Japan like always?

Can't wait. Although I don't like the EUR 34,99 price-point I read elsewhere, if US only pays 29,99

    Tinks I write off Aquaman because you're already dealing with one of the worst super heroes in comics. Then when you see the design for creatures/villains it sorta seals its fate. Though I do think (1 Hour ago)
