After playing Judgment with no previous knowledge of the Jakuza-series I got caught up in the story and gameplay and liked it very much. I bought Jakuza 0 and having a great time playing it. I notice there is a Remasterede collection containing 3-5. Is it possible to play these after 0, or should I play 1 and 2 first? I'm not sure it's possible to get 1 and 2 on my current systems.

Hm? Remaster is PS4 exclusive for now and every Yakuza game is on PS4. Or are you playing on PS3?

Anyhow just skip if u cannot play, you will be missing out on some characters indroduced in 1 & 2 like the police detective or tojo clan president but overall Yakuza 3 is a pretty fresh start.

Yakuza 0 is probably one of the strangest experience in my gaming history. Still enjoyed it though.

You skip to Yakuza 3 as mentioned above

@sakaixx: I'm playing o PS4. Yakuza 1 and 2 is on PS2, but PS4 is not backwards compatible.

Guess I'll buy the remasterd collection.

@heljar: Yeah, it's a little bit confusing but Yakuza Kiwami 1 and Yakuza Kiwami 2 are remakes of the original PS2 games Yakuza 1 and 2 but using the engine/combat from Yakuza 0. The follow the same story as the original games so basically you can play the entire Yakuza main series on the PS4 these days.

@Byshop: Cool! I'm still busy playing Yakuza 0, I've ordered the Yakuaza Remaster Bundle and I'm thinking of buying Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2 from PsStore. Guess I have a lot of gaming to do.

FYI You're playing them in chronological order. Personally I would have recommended Kiwami 1 first since that's the original game, and the way the story plays out in 0 it sort of expects you to already be familiar with the Yakuza universe but there's no problem playing 0 first.
