You should play Yakuza 0. It’s the best title in the series, it has a solid PC port, and now that port is available as part of the latest Humble Monthly bundle – along with Tom Clancy’s The Division. Those are the two titles you’ll get up front as part of the $12 purchase, and as always you’ll get a lineup of mystery games once next month’s selection rolls over.
This is one of the cheapest prices Yakuza 0 has yet been available for, since it was down to just $13.39 over the Steam Winter Sale. The Division has had no shortage of bargains, including numerous free weekends – so you’ve probably had a chance to find out whether or not it’s for you. Humble doesn’t specify where these codes redeem, but it’s safe to expect Yakuza on Steam and The Division on Uplay.
If you’ll indulge my soapbox for a moment – Yakuza is a wonderful series with largely wonderful storytelling, delightfully goofy side content, and a rock-solid brawling engine to bring it all together. It’s the kind of quirky action game that rarely gets made anymore, and Yakuza 0 is both the best entry in the series and a great place to get started.
You can grab the bundle here. The last Humble Monthly selection included Just Cause 3, Qube 2, Observer, Sundered, Wizard of Legend, Project Cars 2, Regions of Ruin, The Darkside Detective, and Humble Original Roombo: First Blood.
We’ll find out what the rest of the February bundle holds next month, but the starting line-up is a strong one, and already well worth the purchase price.
