Yakuza 6: The Song of Life coming in March 2018
The latest in the crime franchise will debut in the West next year
The final chapter of SEGA's long-running Yakuza franchise will soon come to a close when Yakuza 6: The Song of Life debuts in the Americas and Europe on March 20, 2018.
The game will get an "After Hours Premium Edition" for $89.99/CA$119.99/£79.99/€89.99/A$129.99. This special edition contains a hardcover art book, 2 Bar Glasses (280ml), 2 Ice Stones, 2 Coasters, all in a collectible box.
In Yakuza 6, Kazuma Kiryu will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family when he investigates a series of shadowy events that involve the ones he holds closest to his heart. Fresh out of a three-year prison sentence, an older and weathered Kiryu comes to find out that his surrogate daughter, Haruka, has gone missing from the orphanage he looks after.
Yakuza 6 is the first current-gen Yakuza title that was developed from the ground up for the PS4, introducing the seedy Japanese underworld with detailed visuals, lifelike animations, a new physics engine, interactive storefronts, seamless transitions and more. Revamped minigames like karaoke, batting cages, darts, hostesses, and the SEGA arcade have been streamlined. Devastating combos and bone-breaking Heat Actions make a return, but now the Dragon of Dojima can fill up a meter to engage Extreme Heat Mode. When activated, Kiryu glows blue and unleashes heavy-damage combos with his fists or any "tool" that's close at hand.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4.
