If you've always wanted to take the Yakuza series on the go with you, you now can. Thanks to the cloud streaming possibilities achieved with Xbox Game Pass for mobile, the first six Yakuza games are now available to play on your phone by streaming it from Microsoft’s servers.

Today saw the release of the Yakuza Remastered Collection on PC and Xbox, where it also came to the Game Pass subscription service. This bundle includes Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered and Yakuza 5 Remastered. Additionally, Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2 have also been available to play on the service for a while now.

The Yakuza series follows the story of Kiryu Kazuma, a former member of the Tojo Clan yakuza organisation who keeps getting pulled back into the criminal lifestyle that he desperately wants to leave behind. The series also features many strong supporting characters, including fan favourite and Kiryu’s persistent frenemy Goro Majima, a fierce gangster whose wild card personality earns him the nickname “The Mad Dog of Shimano”.

Xbox Game Pass is the premium subscription service that synergises across PC, console and mobile with hundreds of games available to play, including all first-party Xbox games such as Halo or Forza being made available to play on launch day.
