Yakuza games in order: by release date, in chronological order and ranked

There’s never been a better time to play the Yakuza games. The series made its Western debut way back in 2006, and was previously exclusive to Sony’s platforms for a number of years. That all changed recently, though, as Yakuza’s unique brand of action-adventure is now available on a host of platforms, including PS4, PS5, Steam and Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.

The Yakuza games revolve around the steely protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, who you follow in a journey through the heart of Japan’s seedy underworld. You’ll experience what life is like as a hard-nosed Yakuza, and although there’s plenty of moolah to be made (and people to shake down), it isn’t all work and no play. There’s a staggering amount of recreational activities on offer, from singing karaoke, eating at restaurants and playing Sega’s classics in the arcades – you’ll even end up running a cabaret club.
