Yakuza 0 could be very close to its release on Xbox One. The game was rated by PEGI, a step which usually comes only a few days before the announcement of a launch date.
The Xbox One version of the prequel to the Yakuza series was announced last year at X019, together with Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2, the remakes of the first two chapters. All three titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass eventually, but no proper release date is currently known.
In its rating, PEGI, which stands for Pan European Game Information, reports that Yakuza 0 is an “action role-playing game set in Japan. You play a member of the Japanese mafia that must leave the Yakuza to prove his innocence and get revenge upon those who framed him.”
The game is already available for PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. It seems Xbox One is the last step to bring the franchise to the broadest audience possible—unless it gets announced for Nintendo Switch at some point, of course.
We don’t know the specifics of the Xbox One version, whether it might have any improvements on the existing releases or if it’s coming as a simple port of the PS4 SKU.
The moment Yakuza 0 launches, you’ll be able to play it without any additional cost if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber.
