The Yakuza Remastered Collection Is Now Available Via Xbox Game Pass

The Yakuza Remastered Collection is now available for download on Xbox Game Pass, whether you’re on PC or the flagship Microsoft console itself: that’s rad.

Yakuza’s remastered trilogy features games 3, 4, and 5, but you can also download them separately if you don’t want all three eating up your hard drive space.

The remastered trilogy brought the already remade games up to current-gen, PS4, and Xbox One, with the appeal being the uncapped 60FPS and higher resolution of 1080p. However, there were some sneaky changes slid in there that some suspecting eyes managed to catch.

“The first game is ten years old. Back in the day, the perception of the LGBTQ community was different from how it is nowadays. It’s a different topic, with different ways of looking at it and talking about it, and so there are some substories that didn’t fit this modern spirit and so they had to be cut,” producer Daisuke Sato told MCV.

He also addressed western audiences, who he stated, “[wouldn’t] completely grasp the concept of the Yakuza clans in Japanese culture,” but fret not, as this doesn’t mean that the game will start to cater to Western players. Rather, “over time, we’ve put in more effort into the localization.” As such, the remastered 4, 5, and 6 were all localized by the team that did 0 and 6’s.

If you want to delve into the other titles, Yakuza 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2 (remasters of the first two games), they are also available on Game Pass, meaning that you can play nearly every single main-line Yakuza with your subscription now.

As such, the experience won’t be the exact same as it was back in the day, but Yakuza 4, 5, and 6 are now available on PC and Xbox so long as you are subscribed to Game Pass. For those on PlayStation, who unfortunately cannot use Game Pass, the trilogy costs $59.99.
