Majima Does More Than Just Pop Up Everywhere in Yakuza Kiwami

Majima Does More Than Just Pop Up Everywhere in Yakuza Kiwami

You can pre-order the Yakuza remake today.

Yakuza Kiwami is delivering an enhanced remake of the original Yakuza game but don't expect graphics to be the only thing different about the upcoming Yakuza title. Sega is adding what they call a "Majima Everywhere" system that turns everyone's favorite yakuza psycho into an It Follows type nemesis. We've covered this new feature before but now we have even more details on this gonzo mechanic

Yakuza Kiwami

In a new post on the PlayStation blogs, Sega localization producer Scott Strichart explained that in addition to the game going on pre-order, Kiwami will be bringing the Majima Everywhere mechanic to just seriously mess up your Yakuza playthrough in the best way possible.

Basically, Yakuza Kiwami has decided to add Majima Goro as a random fight encounter that can be triggered at any time throughout your playthrough of Kiwami.

"I won't even begin to spoil all the incredible, sometimes hilarious, encounters with Majima, but early on in the game, you'll be notified that "Officer" Majima is working the beat by the Millennium Tower, and he's on the lookout for anyone carrying any suspicious weapons. Try swinging by the area with a knife, gun, or maybe a frozen tuna on your person. You won't be disappointed."

There are benefits to fighting Majima whenever he appears. Apparently he's taken it upon himself to train Kiryu, specifically, fighting Majima is the only way to level up Kiryu's strongest fighting style, the Dragon of Dojima.

Strichart warns that it won't be easy however as Majima will bring with him all of his fighting styles from Yakuza 0, making him one tough sensei to train under.

Pre-order Yakuza Kiwami now as the game hits stores August 29.
