Yakuza Kiwami

Sega has put down any hopes for a Yakuza Kiwami port making its way to Xbox One in the near future.

In response to a fan’s Twitter question, Sega Europe revealed the lack of plans to port the remake:

The news is certainly disheartening, especially considering the Yakuza series’s presence on Xbox is non-existent.

Sega announced that Yakuza Kiwami would be coming to PC players February 19 just late last month. Along with access to the port, the upgraded port offers 4K resolutions and an uncapped framerate. Catch up with the PC announcement trailer down below.

Whether or not the remake will ever come to Microsoft platforms is up in the air. PlayStation 4 owners already have access to the title, so be sure to check out OnlySP’s review of the game here.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
