The Yakuza series of games has a loyal fan base outside of Japan, so it’s sure to be welcome news that Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 have all been confirmed as getting the remaster treatment for a digital release on PS4. What’s even more welcome is the news Sega is planning a physical release of all three games in one collection..
Here’s how it will work. If you purchase the collection digitally you can play Yakuza 3 right now. Yakuza 4 will be available for download on 29th of October 2019, and 5 will be on the Playstation store on 11th of February 2020.
The staggered release might seem a little odd, but perhaps Sega just wants some time to smooth out some finer details for the fourth and fifth entries.
The physical collection will also be receiving a February 2020 release, and will be the first time Yakuza 5 will be available physically to western fans.
