The setting of Onomichi proves that the long-running series still has some tricks, making Yakuza 6 a worthy finale for its main protagonist.
What is it? The seventh Yakuza game, set before Like a Dragon in the chronology.
Expect to pay $20/£15

One of the peculiarities of Sega’s PC port release schedule—releasing the series (almost) chronologically, rather than in the order they were made—is it lessens the original impact that Yakuza 6 once had. It’s no longer a showcase for the new Dragon engine, because Yakuza Kiwami 2 exists and does that better. And it’s not as experimental or new as Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which features turn-based combat and a different protagonist—making it a fine jumping on point for anyone looking to skip ahead to the very latest in the series.
