Yakuza games are finally coming to the Xbox One beginning with Yakuza 0 and the two remakes, Kiwami 1 and 2. The first game has been now rated by PEGI.
Last year, Microsoft revealed its upcoming Xbox Game Pass lineup that will bring more than 40 games including the Yakuza franchise for the first time to Xbox One. The three Yakuza games that were confirmed were Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami 1, and Yakuza Kiwami 2.
While there is no official word on when these games will be available to play on Xbox Game Pass, PEGI has rated Yakuza 0 for the Xbox One hinting at an announcement or release soon. Since these games will launch first on Xbox Game Pass, anyone who has an active subscription can play them.
Yakuza 0 is already available for PS4 and PC. It was rated by PEGI for the Xbox One today. Here is a description of the rating.

The game was submitted for a rating approval by SEGA Europe. Yakuza Zero was a cross-generation game that also launched for PS3. It wasn’t until Kiwami 2 that the developers full started to take advantage of the new hardware.
Yakuza 0 is already available on PC with support for higher resolution and FPS. It is not confirmed whether these games will support the Xbox One X or the nature of the resolution and frame rate of the Xbox One port.
