Yakuza: Like A Dragon is a brilliant addition to the PS Plus Essential tier. Yakuza: Like A Dragon is the first turn-based Yakuza game of its kind.

You play the part of lovable oaf Ichiban Kasuga, on his personal quest to become a hero. Through his love of Dragon Quest and heroism, Ichiban joins up with friends to go on a journey filled to the brim with humour. It’s possibly one of the best games in the Yakuza franchise.

Little Nightmares is a creepy puzzle platformer where you play as Six, a little girl in a yellow raincoat. The game got a sequel last year, so if you’ve always wanted to try out this series, it looks like August could be your chance.

These games will come to the PS Plus service on August 2nd.
