If you’re like most and start with Yakuza If you’re using this generation of consoles, you may be curious to see how the PlayStation 3 games in the series will find their way to the PlayStation 4.
Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5 are coming to the PlayStation 4, and fans of the series will be pleased to hear that the content cut off from the original release of the third game will be intact, as Sega production director Sam Mullen announces Statements on Twitter.
The digital versions of the three games will be released individually on the PlayStation Store and eventually as a set. However, if you are more of a collector, you can wait until the three titles appear in digital form and purchase a physical edition. Yes, that’s right: Yakuza 3 by 5 get a physical collection release! Gosh, if that were five years ago, my keyboard would be in tears.
Although Yakuza 6 and the Kiwami title have brought a new engine and these older entries may feel archaic. All three are worth one and a half games to experience Kazuma Kiryu’s journey and difficulties as he tries to break away from the Tojo clan, even from Osaka time and again.
If you’ve missed this era in the series, you owe it to yourself either to include these titles in the collection or individually, to see how the saga unfolds as intended.
