Yakuza_5

The list of free games for PlayStation Plus members for next month is out. The most notable game on the list is of course Yakuza 5 for the PlayStation 3. Series fans hold the game in high regard due to its fantastic story and great amount of content. You can check out our full review for more details about the content.  Here is a bit about the game straight from the PlayStation Store:

The legendary dragon returns to the criminal underworld of Yakuza. Kazuma Kiryu, once known as the Dragon of Dojima, was living a quiet life as a taxi driver in Hakata after severing all his ties with the underworld. However, at the dawn of the bloody war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance, Kazuma is forced to accept his inescapable fate and returns to a life filled with crime and violence to protect his loved ones. Yakuza 5 continues the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu and 4 other protagonists, Haruka Sawamura, Taiga Saejima, Tatsuo Shinada and Shun Akiyama. The saga plays out across 5 major Japanese cities – Tokyo, Osaka, Hakata, Nagoya and Sapporo. Yakuza 5 also features “Another Drama” which is a series of extensive sub-plots that focus on each protagonist. The battle system and customization system have been enhanced from Yakuza 4 and various mini-games are available in the well-known locales from the series including infamous night clubs and popular CLUB SEGA locations.

  • Tricky Towers, PS4
  • Rebel Galaxy, PS4
  • Yakuza 5, PS3
  • Retro/Grade, PS3

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Ok. Its free. People with PS+ download this now.

    • Dgnfly

      Still digital.

    • Lord Ackercocke

      Now I know u are not complaining about a free game?

    • Dgnfly

      I don’t even use PSplus to get free games i never even downloaded any of their so called free games cause in the end its not free your just basicly renting it.

  • Mr0303

    Yakuza 5 is the highlight, but I’m giving all of them a try. I kind of sucked at Patapon, but I’ll give it another go.

    • JGuill

      Patapon is difficult to get used to but really fascinating when you get the hang of it. I enjoyed playing it for a bit on the Vita.

    • Mr0303

      I played the first one on the PSP and didn’t get the hang of it, but I’ll definitely try it again.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    Yakuza 5 is all that matters.
