Yakuza 7 (Like a Dragon) Letterbox Remover/Ultrawide Fix 1.0.3

3 Screenshots

About This File

This is a patcher for Yakuza 7 (Like a Dragon) that removes the letterboxing at non 16:9 resolutions.

It is made using quickBMS to extract UI resource files and replace the letterboxing textures. 

To install:

  • 1. Extract the contents of the zip to "steamapps\common\Yakuza Like a Dragon\runtime\media\data"
  • 2. Run "letterbox_patch_efigs.bat"
  • 3. A backup of the original files will be placed within a folder marked "backup".

Known Issues:

  • Due to the nature of how the game was made, you will see outside of the 16:9 window. You may see visual glitches and so on that would have been hidden otherwise.
  • New patches for the game may break this. If it does, delete the backup folder and run the patcher again.


What's New in Version 1.0.3   See changelog


  • Added support for Japanese, Korean, Portugese - Brazil, Russian, Chinese and Simplified Chinese languages.
  • Updated to latest version of quickBMS and change reimport method to method 2.

It works perfectly, even after the 4 updates from Steam (only is necessary reinstall the patch after an official update).
Thank you very much for the effort!

And for those who want to see the result I leave my gameplay at 3840x1080 (32: 9) 🐲

Thanks, but the patcher doesn't update all the files with different languages that game is currently support. Can the patcher be extended for Russian and other new languages which were added with the February game's update? Thanks again.

      The small patcher will unlock all resolutions in the game and remove the black bars displayed at 21:9 and other resolutions.

      The tools unlock resolutions in the game and remove black bars.

      For Microsoft Store:
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to toggle the fix. Select any in-game resolution and apply it. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For the GOG and other versions, download the patcher and make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game might reset to 1920x1080 and windowed at the start of each chapter, which is a known issue with the game itself. In that event, simply go to the options and set them back.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080.

      The tool previously allowed to change field of view, but as of the May 12, 2020 game update, there is an FOV slider in the game.
      The remaining functionality is removing black bars from the cutscenes at 32:9 and wider resolutions.
      Simply unpack the archive and use the small patcher to target the ZA4_dx12 and/or ZA4_vulkan executable in the game folder depending on your preferred graphics API. Be mindful of the large file size of the executables which will be backed up and take up space if left untouched. Tested the latest EGS Vulkan and DX12 game versions at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
