About this mod

Restores the classic music from the original PS2 version of Yakuza 1.

Permissions and credits
The purpose of this patch is to restore the classic music from original PS2 release of Yakuza 1.

Yakuza Kiwami remixed all music, arguably for the worse, without offering an option to choose original PS2 soundtrack.
This mod does just that, it replaces the remixed music from Kiwami with original PS2 tracks from Yakuza 1.
In few rare instances where certain tracks didn't exist in PS2 Yakuza 1 (Lau Ka Long's theme, Amon's theme) we have used their equivalent variants from Yakuza 3 which are the origins of Lau's and Amon's unique themes that Kiwami remixed.
All the tracks are naturally properly looped, with 1/1000 of a second precision for seamless loops and transitions.
Volume levels are likewise normalized to be as close as possible to Kiwami's volume levels so that they aren't jarring.
The mod also restores the proper placement of "Intelligence for Violence" in the Nishikiyama Clan fights in front of Serena and during the long battle leading up to Arase, just the way it was back on PS2.

Furthermore, the mod includes Yakuza Kiwami Licensed Music Restoration Patch as it doesn't interfere with the PS2 music in any way whatsoever, so you do not need to install it separately.
Feel free to read the separate guide for the Licensed Music Restoration Patch below for more information.

Those of you that might be familiar with our music restoration patches for the PS3 and PS4 Yakuza titles should be right at home with this patch.
