Three excellent games for less than £18? Sign us up.
The Game Collection has an excellent deal on The Yakuza Remastered Collection as part of its Black Friday deals. The Collection, which bundles together Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5, is available for just £17.95 on PS4. It’s the cheapest we’ve seen the collection at.
This is undoubtedly the best way to play the earlier Yakuza titles. While Yakuza 1 and 2 have been fully remade as Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza 3-5 hasn’t had the same treatment. Instead, they have been updated and up-rezzed, allowing you to enjoy the games at 1080p 60fps. They’ve also been re-localised to make them better than ever.
Writing about the collection back in 2019, here’s what we had to say:
“For anyone wondering whether they should pick up The Yakuza Remastered Collection, the answer is yes, you most definitely should. […] Looking back, the Yakuza games were well ahead of their time, and these PS3 releases just needed a bit of spit and polish to make them ready for the primetime in 2019 and 2020.”
And so, you can’t say much fairer than that. For £17.95, it’s a steal. Don’t miss out on this excellent trio of modern classics.
