Yakuza 3 Remastered[Note 1] is a singleplayer third-person open world action game developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and published by Sega. It is part of the Yakuza (Like a Dragon) series.

The game, which was released on PlayStation 4 in 2018, is a remastered version of Yakuza 3, originally released on PlayStation 3 in 2009. It was ported to PC by QLOC and released on January 28, 2021.

Yakuza 3 Restoration Patch

Restores licensed music that was cut from the Western release of Yakuza 3, as well as higher quality videos from the PlayStation 3 version and changes the Tamashiro Family crest to its original pre-remastered design. Additionally, a line of dialogue in a cutscene before the final boss has been corrected to feature a more accurate translation.
Use restoration patch[2]
  1. Download Yakuza 3 Licensed Music, Video and Uncensor Restoration Patch.
  2. Unpack the files to <path-to-game> and overwrite when prompted.


A line of dialogue in a cutscene before the final boss has been changed to feature a more accurate translation to the original Japanese script. This can be omitted by not copying the AUTH folder from the mod's archive.
Condensed Licensed Music Restoration can be used as an alternative without the higher quality videos from the PlayStation 3 version, the changes to the Tamashiro Family crest, as well as the changed line mentioned above. With this patch, only the licensed music is restored.

Enabling High Resolution Characters Textures

This mod replaces the ingame characters' textures with their high resolution cutscene equivalents.

High Resolution Font for Yakuza 3

Replaces the font in the game with the same official higher resolution text font for better 4K experience.

Quickstep Restoration

Restores the PS3 quickstep distance, which was halved on PC due to the new framerate, nerfing one of Kiryu's most powerful tools against enemy blocking early in the game.

Licensed Content Restoration

Restores Mine's drink to the original Gatorade branding and body spray to the AXE branding.

Fix for the loud ambient car sound in Downtown Ryukyu

Fixes the loud ambient audio that constantly plays throughout Downtown Ryukyu in exploration which is a bug that was introduced on the PC port of Yakuza 3.
  1. Download the fix.
  2. Extract contents to <path-to-game> and overwrite if prompted.
