Hey, Yakuza 0 is releasing on Steam August 1st, 2018.

It would be nice to add "PC" to the available platforms, but what about loading times? it probably will be faster. Should we list real time and in-game time from now?

edit: Kiwami coming soon too - no date yet though.

PC will be added a few days before release. My initial thought is that PC and console will be seperated on the leaderboards because Sega Europe's PC releases have a track record of having vastly superior load times alone, even on inferior hardware, and we have no idea what having a frame rate above 60FPS will do. It's super exciting!

Edit: Ideally we'll be able to get a gameplay trailer a little bit before to be able to see if load times are indeed significantly different. If there aren't then we'll just enable PC in the options for when you submit.

In game time will not be re-added ever. In game time in the Yakuza games is a bit of a tricky subject because it's not exactly accurate. Take my Any% Legend playthrough for example. It was ass. It was genuinely the most awful thing and I lost about 30-45 minutes to Chapter 13 because of dieing/Makoto getting caught. But I was only 10 minutes IGT behind my Any% Easy run because whenever you die or load a checkpoint it reverts the time back to the loaded instance. Because of this it could be very easily abused so in game time will not be considered.
