Sega released quite possibly the best Christmas gift for editor Sam Wachter. It may involve hostess clubs, bicycle murder, and… dance battles? Bless you, Sega. Bless you!
Chris gets review bombed outta existence, after Pascal gleefully mocks the list of games that Chris still didn’t play. Anna Marie insists genital monsters yes, f-bombs no. Kelley thinks Anna Marie should get out of the pocket of Big Farming. We’re all pretty tired from vaccine side effects, please bear with us.
The Yakuza games have allowed players to beat up thugs and explore the streets of Japan for over 15 years. With a dozen different localized releases to choose from, RPGamer takes a crack at helping players figure out where to get into this unique series.
It’s another explicit week, as Sam calls Chris poopy. Anna Marie can’t understand Dutch (even though she likes to think she does), while Pascal imagines he’s eating a sausage. Josh is slowly falling under the spell of Mass Effect Stockholm Syndrome, and somehow Chris is equally obsessed with shoes, jeggings, and dead Google products. Save us.
RPGamer’s Yakuza aficionados Josh Carpenter, David McBurney, Ryan McCarthy, and Sam Wachter weigh in on whether Yakuza 5 fulfilled any dreams, or was the stuff of nightmares.
PC and Xbox RPGamers now have another trio of Yakuza games available to them. The remastered entries for Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 are available in a bundle as well as separately.
The remaining Yakuza games are making their way to both Xbox One and PC. The Yakuza Remastered Collection will arrive in January, with Yakuza 6 to follow in March.
The remastered version of Yakuza 5 is now available to download for owners of the Yakuza Remastered Collection on PlayStation 4. For those who want physical copies of Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5, the good news is that the retail bundle is also out now.
Sega has revealed that the PlayStation 4 remasters of Yazuka 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5 are coming to North America and Europe. The first of them, Yakuza 3, is actually out right now.
The Japanese PS4 release date for Yakuza 5 has been revealed. The entire series will available on the console as of June.
Sega is ensuring that PS4-owning RPGamers will be able to play the entire mainline Yakuza series on the console. Though the final three games aren’t getting the full Kiwami treatment, they will be arriving in Japan within the next year.
