Discussion The likeness between OG Y1 and YK

I'm sure some of you have been wondering whether you should go with the original or remake of Y1 given the choice, but I feel it, ultimately, depends on what you're looking for; while the original Y1 does have a more "natural" way of improving your character (i.e. you get into more encounters with enemies to learn better moves and become more formidable), Kiwami gives you more room to play around with the 3 additional styles from Zero, although an emulation of the original's style is locked behind some arduous side-content. Furthermore, there is content available in the original that you will not find in Kiwami, and vice versa.

MINI-GAMES

In OG Yakuza 1, you could:

  • Play baseball at the batting center
  • Fight in the underground coliseum
  • Play blackjack, roulette, or baccarat in the casinos
  • Try your luck at Volcano Pachislot
  • Go for a Massage at Love-in-Heart
  • Do Chouhan
  • Watch girls dance at the Asia Striptease
  • "Play" the UFO Catcher at the arcade (but not any of the actual games)


In Yakuza Kiwami, you can:

  • Play baseball at the batting center
  • Fight in the underground coliseum
  • Play blackjack, roulette, baccarat, or poker in the casinos
  • Play mahjong (carried over from Zero, the building technically did exist in OG, but at no point was it accessible)!
  • Play shogi (also carried over from Zero)!
  • Play Pocket Circuit!
  • Try out pool or darts at the local bars!
  • Do Chouhan, Koi-koi, Oichokabu, or Cee-lo!
  • Watch girls dance at the Asia Striptease
  • "Play" the UFO Catcher at the arcade, as well as Print Club and
    Spoiler:
    the Catfight from 0, immortalized as MesuKing
  • Sing Karaoke
  • Go bowling!


SUBSTORIES



There were 72 substories in OG Y1, discounting the Amon showdown. Only 46 of these remain in Kiwami.

These substories were cut completely:

Chapter 4:


  • At Good Cafe
  • Smile Burger Catastrophe
  • Search for the Manuscript
  • Snatcher
  • Art and Talent
  • No. 1 Host


Chapter 5:


  • Art and Talent Part 2
  • Art and Talent Part 3
  • Art and Talent Part 4
  • Art and Talent Part 5
  • Gelato Shop Cataclysm


Chapter 6:


  • Gelato Shop Cataclysm
  • Horse Racing Freak
  • Save Momoko Kawai
  • Suspicious Gun


Chapter 7:


  • Casino Royale


Chapter 10:


  • Pick Pocket Pursuit Part 2
  • Gang Busters Part 4
  • Wrong Person


These substories did not technically make it in, but had certain aspects of them incorporated into specific substories that were remade, or at least, substituted.

Chapter 6:

[*]Former Baseball Player (Its counterpart in Kiwami is "Bowling Battle")

Chapter 10:


  • Gangbusters Part 2 (There's an encounter in Taihei Boulevard, East)
  • Gangbusters Part 3 (There is an encounter south of Shine on Pink Street)
  • Gangbusters Part 5 (You try to gather more info by talking to Aoki in Theater Square)
  • The Leader of the Gangbusters (He is one of the guys you fight during the Pink Street encounter)


These substories were not altered, or shortened, in any way, shape, or form, only merged into missions that exist in Kiwami:

Chapter 10:


  • Asano the Mastermind
  • Dying Man Request, Wish, Hope (This was all condensed into a single mission, "The Medicine Goes Down")


[...more comparison to come...]

Yakuza Kiwami is the more complete game even so some things like the Massage is missing. People who really don't like Majima should think about playing the original tho :D

Even if you don't want to play Kiwami over the original, the extra cutscenes are worth watching at least. Especially the ones adding more to Nishikiyama. (Also if you can't stand the original's dub like me, play Kiwami.)

Kiwami for me because theres more story.

Majima was a great idea and funny, but gets annoying overtime.



Awesome signature thanks to kira

I never got annoyed, but mostly because when I played I did everything I could with Majima to each point I progressed, to get Dragon ASAP. I had fun with it because it never interrupted what I was doing.

Majima Everywhere has some great moments but is awfully tedious unless you have the Beads of Good Fortune accessory which reduces his encounter rate.

He never annoyed me at any time until I hit the postgame and tried to finish the Completion List. It was funny to see him appear in different Situations.

After Kiwami 2, I will return on 2 episodes from PS2.

Great topic @73hBakyuunkan,; I'm curious for your next comparaisons about substories. That's why I will play in ps2 game after so many years.

@GorudenRyu I did try it lately to beat Majima in Shogi but it's to hard for me. It's just chess with some new rules but Majima plays perfect everytime. No Mistakes there so it's kinda impossible for me.

I need to play this game again already got 80% Completion. Challenges, 100% and Legend Playthrough are missing tho :D
