Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Heads West On March 20th

Sega has announced that the end of Kazuma Kiryu’s story, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, will be making its way to the West. Slated for a March 2oth, 2018, release date, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be released for the PlayStation 4, priced at $59.99.  

A launch limited edition will also be available for those who pre-order the title or manage to snag a copy before they’re gone.

In Yakuza 6, Kiryu will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family – be those ties through blood or bond – when he investigates a series of shadowy events that involve the ones he holds closest to his heart. He’ll journey to familiar grounds in Kamurocho and the new setting of Onomichi, a beautiful, sleepy port town in Hiroshima Prefecture, in order to find the answers he seeks. Powered by the brand-new Dragon Engine, the game is the ultimate iteration of Yakuza’s blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer.
But if you want to go all out, there you may want the Yakuza 6‘s sexy premium set for the game. Called the “After Hours Premium Edition”, and is priced at $89.99 and will more than likely sell out fast. The following items are included:

  • Hardcover Art Book – The intense human drama and magnetic world of Yakuza 6 will be on display in this stunning art book. We’ll have more details on what will fill the pages at a later date.
  • 2 Bar Glasses (280ml) – Designed with Kiryu’s ferocious dragon tattoo, these bar glasses are the perfect receptacles for your beverage of choice.
  • 2 Ice Stones – Cool down your drinks with a pair of heat action branded ice stones! One features the flame heat action icon, while the other has the Japanese “kiwami” heat action icon. Chilling has never been so… extreme.
  • 2 Coasters – A true yakuza knows how to relax with class, so coasters are a must have when lounging after hours. Protect table surfaces with style by placing your glasses on top of official Tojo Clan branded coasters. Plus, you won’t need to play the “is this my drink?” game because of their inverted colors!
  • An Outer Box – All of these essential tools will be housed within a collectable outer box.
Yakuza 6 will also be powered by Sega’s “Dragon Engine“, which was developed exclusively for this current-generation of Yakuza. This new engine will showcase the seedy Japanese underworld with detailed visuals, lifelike animations, a new physics engine, interactive storefronts, seamless transitions and more. 
Looks like Kazuma Kiryu will be going on like a boss in Yakuza 6.
