Weird people saying that they're coming too frequent... we don't have a date, this is just an announcement. Yakuza 7 was released this year yes... it was also announced in 2017. This game they're announcing now might not release until 2023. Wait for the release date before you say they're "cranking them out" or "already?"

I played Yakuza for the first time when Yakuza Kiwami was free on PS Plus. I'm glad I pulled through the first 30 minutes, since two years later I've played 0-4,6, and judgment.

0 was amazing, that story was one of the best in any game. Is judgement worth playing??

Just buy the collection, have 3, 4 and 5. They said there wouldn`t be a Kiwami because it was already on HD.

Used to be excited when a new Yakuza game was announced... now I'm just "meh". Sega is kind off milking the franchise at this point.


DonFerrari (on 25 September 2020)

Yakuza used to be an almost yearly title. Now the entries are taking a lot longer to come, we just had plenty of Yakuza lately because of the remaster.
Yakuza 1 - 2005
Yakuza 2 - 2006
Kenzan - 2008
Yakuza 3 - 2009
Yakuza 4 - 2010
Dead Souls - 2011
Yakuza 5 - 2012
Ishin - 2014
Yakuza 0 - 2015
Yakuza 6 - 2016
Yakuza 7 - 2020

We also had Kiwami 1 in 2016, Kiwami 2 in 2017, Judgement and Fist of the North Star in 2018.
