Launching on August 1st, 2018 for $19.99, Sega announced that Yakuza 0 would be making its debut on PC for the very first time via Steam. Yakuza Kiwami is also set to arrive on Steam soon, too.
Yakuza 0 originally came out for PS4 in Japan, and then later it received a Western release, and all the meanwhile PC gamers have been begging Sega for ports, and Sega has obliged. The prequel is set during the 1980s, where players take on the roles of Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima during their journey through Japan’s seedy, interesting, entertaining, violent, and sexy organized life of crime. You can also pre-order Yakuza 0 right now by visiting the Steam store page.
Sega also announced that Yakuza Kiwami is coming to Steam as well. The game is a remake of the original Yakuza from the PlayStation 2, with improved graphics, combat, and a retelling of how the series all started. You can check out the showcase below highlighting all the new games coming to Steam.
In addition to the two Yakuza titles coming to Steam, Shining Resonance Refrain and Valkyria Chronicles 4 are also coming to Steam as well.
Shining Resonance Refrain, in fact, will launch first out of the four games coming from Sega to Steam. You’ll be able to get your hands on the game starting July 10th next month for $49.99. Pre-purchasing has also opened up for Shining Resonance Refrain over on the official Steam store page.
Last but not least is Valkyria Chronicles 4, which recently came out for PS4 this past spring for PS4, and it’s now set to arrive on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and on Steam for PC this fall. You can keep track of the game by visiting the Steam store page.
It looks like Sega is finally committing themselves to the PC market in a glorious way, so don’t be surprised if the other Yakuza games join the line-up if Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami sell well enough on Steam.
