We played Yakuza: Like a Dragon on Xbox Series X, and while we didn't find a very high "next-gen" factor, we did find a delightfully weird, self-aware JRPG that we're eager to play more of.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be released on November 10 for Xbox Series X|S, PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

  • Yakuza is a great series. Every game is available on PS4 now either as remakes, remasters or directly made for it. I recommend starting from the bottom and going through from Yakuza 0 to 6

  • I know we all hate 2020 But I'm going to remember it as the year I discovered 3 (and hopefully 4) of my favorite games ever when yakuza started coming to Xbox. I was afraid max Scoville over hyped the series, turns out he may have undersold it. Thanks max and thanks gamepass
