In celebration, Sega launched a new website called Yakuza Experience. The site offers an interactive timeline of the entire series, as well as a detailed profiles of the main players in the Yakuza story.

Yakuza Kiwami came out on PS3, and PS4 in January in Japan. It’s out August 29, only on PS4, in the West.
