Take note, when we say the entire series, we mean the mainline titles, including Yakuza Kiwami, Kiwami 2, 3-5 Remastered, 6, and Like a Dragon (which all released on PS4 and PS5). Of course, given that the OG Yakuza 1 and 2 were not released outside of the PS2, they are not available.
Here’s a list of all the games in the series that will be available and in which tier:
- Yakuza 0 – August for Extra / Premium
- Yakuza Kiwami – August for Extra / Premium
- Yakuza Kiwami 2 – August for Extra / Premium
- Yakuza 3 Remastered – Later this year for PS Plus Premium
- Yakuza 4 Remastered – Later this year for PS Plus Premium
- Yakuza 5 Remastered – Later this year for PS Plus Premium
- Yakuza 6: The Song of Life – Later this year for PS Plus Premium
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon – PS Plus Essential Free Game For August 2022
In a separate announcement, Sony revealed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be part of the August 2022 free games lineup, alongside Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and Little Nightmares.
While the Yakuza series is going to be available on PS Plus soon, there’s no word yet on if these are permanent additions. There’s also no specific information yet on if these games will be available in all regions.
