Every mainline Yakuza game is now available on PS Plus

Every mainline Yakuza game has finally arrived on PS Plus for eager action-adventure fans to dive on into. Experience the entire story of Yakuza from start to finish in this adrenaline-filled, whacky, and over-the-top world.

It's taken some time for it to come to fruition, but the entire mainline Yakuza series is now available to download on PS Plus from December 20th, 2022 thanks to the December PS Plus Extra and Premium games announcement. There is a slight kicker in all of this, however; only PS Plus Premium subscribers can actually access all of these games. Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, and Yakuza 5 Remastered are all tucked behind the Premium tier, leaving PS Plus Extra subscribers with access to every other Yakuza game outside of these remasters — oh, and Yakuza Dead Souls which is still missing from the PS Plus library.

While it's disappointing looking at the PS Plus Extra games library and seeing those three main entries in the series absent, it's still great to have the entire series available to play from beginning to end. Revealed in the aforementioned announcement, Yakuza 6 The Song of Life and the surprise addition of Yakuza Like a Dragon have both completed the mainline series for PS Plus subscribers.

Original Story: PlayStation Plus will be getting eight games from the Yakuza series — one of which has already been announced as part of the monthly PS Plus games for August 2022 for PS Plus Essential. These are the eight Yakuza series games for PS4 and PS5 coming to PS Plus.

Announced on the PlayStation Blog, it interestingly doesn't give a specific date for when the games will be added to the various tiers — but it does tell us every game, platform, and tier they will be included. All Essential games are available to Extra and Premium users, and all Extra and Essential games are available to Premium users — for more information, see our PS Plus guide. Half are coming in August and half are coming later this year.

There you have it! Your game catalogue is about to be very full indeed. Later in the month, we will endeavour to make sure you are up to date on the trophies for these games, but for now, this should prepare you for the Yakuza onslaught. Let us know what you think in the comments.
