They added a lot of new content to Kiwami that references events in 0. Does feel as though RGG intend 0 to be the series entry point with the remakes they've released.
I mean it's not very subtle with the remakes of 1 and 2, and the remasters of 3, 4, and 5. It's not an outlier, fleshing out Kiryu's backstory was as much a part of that 'modernisation' as remaking the games technically.

Yakuza 1 has just as varied combat and is the correct starting point, play them in release order and have zero as a cherry on top.

The only release order that should be considered is the one on PC, so Zero is the first one

I am crossposting this also here, since it might help someone:

Neuromancer said:
Not sure, if this is a problem with the GOG version of Yakuza 0, or of the game in general:

I noticed, that the Save Game function is a little bit buggy.
About once every 6th or 7th try, the game wont save, even if you pressed all the correct buttons.


You can notice this, that the phrase "Save complete" doesn't appear, although it disappears quickly anyway.
Also the date and time is saved together with the game, so you can check that.

In the first chapters, I lost some game time because of this bug, because I noticed this way too late.
Now I verify the time each time after having saved the game. So if it didn't save, I just try a second time, which normally works fine.
Only one time, I had so "save" three times, until the game finally was saved to disc.


Other than that, the game runs perfectly fine.

Kiwami also got weird difficulty spike, the first "legit" Majima fight in the bat center is way harder than anything the game as thrown at you so far, and will also be for quite a while. Same shit for the arena, even among the first tourney, most opponent are complete pushover until you ran into someone that destroy you with just a couple of hit.

I know the arena fight you're referring to, and I cheesed it by letting my health get low enough that heat builds on its own, then ran around in circles until I could do a heat action, rinse and repeat. :lol:

Need a FULL Majima/Saejima game.
God, it would be so fucking good.
It would be like a Hokuto no Jagi game: too crazy to handle. Majima was great in 0 but tamed compared to other games.

0 Majima is the only Majima worth considering. They fleshed out the character past his one-dimensional Kiryu obsession to a great extent.
which may only be good in the context of yakuza 0, because he's a player character there
in other games it doesn't really matter if he's one-dimensional because you don't even play as him, it's like getting heated over kashiwagi

Please do not quote me, you smell bad.
Many thanks.

You'll get some more stuff in Yakuza 5. His backstory is fleshed out even more.
I know, I was saying I think early Majima has enough early drama and hurt to make a story out of it / there's enough years not covered in detail to flesh something out without an absurd amount of retconning.

Earlier than '89 Majima in 0, that is.

There's a save game patch for the Steam version that isn't broken from what I could tell, that'd be easier to deal with.

Thanks for the info.

For now, I just pay attention, if the phrase "Save complete" appears or not.
If yes, everything is ok. There is no real need to recheck the save time, which I did before.

So, it is not a big deal, if you are aware of the bug.

No wait, this kiryu thing is not some extra story for the next mainline yakuza but a full spinoff?
