In the latest Yakuza Restoration video, the game’s producer Masayoshi Yokoyama shows some of the differences between the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game.
At the start of the video Yokoyama will explain the meaning of frames per second and then will tell us how the PS4 version runs at 60 fps unlike the PS3 version which only runs at 30 fps. The real comparison begins at the 4:30 mark in the video.
He first gives us a look at the kanji characters and shadows which look a little less blurry on the PS4 version of the game. He also points out the details of Sakamoto Ryoma’s clothing, which is very apparent when looking at the video side by side. While we can see the difference in details he tells us that they are both mode from the same models, with the PS4 having the ability to show that much more.
At the 7 minute mark he compares some of the movement details, starting with Ryoma watching the streets of Kyoto, then after that he shows a few battle sequences. He explains that we’ll they may look a little different they have the exact same content the only difference would be the quality.
At the 10:05 mark of the video, he shows us a comparison of an event scene. And as you may notice there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference between the two. He explains that the PS3 has always has very good quality in cut scenes so there won’t be much difference other than a few minor details.
He concluded by saying that the porpuse of the comparison is to show that gamers on the PS3 won’t be missing out on much in terms of content, he also said that the PS4 version will have a little more quality available, with the main differences being during movement and actions.
Yakuza Restoration is coming to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on February 22nd; alongside the console launch in Japan.
