The Yakuza series are the closest thing to a soap opera in video game form, so it’s handy that you can get the series for bugger all right now. And as an extra bonus, Two-Point Hospital, the Endless Space series, a stack of Dreamcast games and more.
We’ve been talking up the Yakuza series for years at Kotaku, so it makes sense to lead with that as the deal. Fanatical are selling Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami as a two-pack for $30 right now, but you can also grab Yakuza 0 by itself for just over $11.
Yakuza 0 is the best entry point for the series, but if you need a hand working out where to go from there, we’ve got you sorted.
Now that the West is getting new Yakuza games every six months, there's never been a better to check out the series. But with over seven games and numerous spin offs, it can be hard to know where to start. Well, today's your lucky day! Let me help you take your first step into one of gaming's best series.Read more
Yakuza 0 is one of 2017's sleeper hits, a prequel to the popular crime drama that brought it to a wider audience. While most of the game is about criminal intrigue and martial arts brawls, a surprisingly robust club management mini-game is one of its most entertaining activities.Read more
A bunch of other SEGA games are going for a song right now as well. The superb Theme Hospital successor, Two Point Hospital, is going for $25, the Endless Space collection for just over $5, Shenmue 1 and 2 for $23.49, Sonic Adventure DX for two bucks, the Sega Master Drive and Genesis Classics bundle for $11, and Bayonetta for $6.
Jet Set Radio is also up for $2, which is insanely good value if you haven’t played it yet, and $4.74 is about the right price to pay for The Club, that odd game from 2008 about the underground bloodsport ring. And completely unrelated to SEGA, but going for a sale right now anyway, is Monster Hunter World for $44.
