The Yakuza games are back on Xbox Game Pass

Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 are coming back to Game Pass for Xbox and PC players.

The next wave of games coming to Xbox Game Pass this month has been announced. 12 new titles are joining the service, with the majority coming to both Xbox and PC. Notably, three games in the Yakuza series will be available once again for Game Pass for Xbox and PC players after being absent for months.

The three games in question are Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. The first serves as a prequel to the events of the series while the latter two are remakes of the first two games in the franchise. Needless to say, it’s the perfect chance to get started with the Yakuza series if you haven’t played it yet.

Nine other titles will be coming to Game Pass this month, including indie favorites Overwhelm, Road 96, and Escape Academy.

Yakuza is back on Game Pass

All three of these Yakuza titles were previously available on Game Pass, but mysteriously left last December. Now, they’re back on the service as of today — a great piece of news for fans of the series, or newcomers in the wings.

Other games will be coming later in the month. Last Call BBS, the final game by studio Zachtronics, will be available on PC Game Pass from day one. Other games such as Power Washer Simulator, Overwhelm, Escape Academy, and Road 96 will also be available. (Oh, and My Friend Peppa Pig, if you’re into that!)

However, five games will also be leaving the service this month for cloud, console, and PC. Starting July 15, you’ll no longer have access to Atomicrops, Carrion, Children of Morta, Cris Tales, and Lethal League Blaze.
