Sega of America has announced that Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will release in the west on March 20, 2018 for PlayStation 4. The game will be priced at $59.99/CA$79.99 in the Americas, £49.99 in the UK, €59.99 in EU, and A$89.99 in Australia. The publisher also released a new gameplay trailer featuring plenty of brawling and some wacky minigames.
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.
Alongside the release date announcement, Sega has revealed both a special Limited Launch Edition and a "After Hours Premium Edition" for Yakuza 6. You can find details on the special editions below:
We went hands-on with Yakuza 6 at E3 2017, where you can find some of our impressions of the game here.
Yakuza 6 Limited Launch Edition
The Limited Launch Edition contains a sleek hardcover art book that doubles as the disc holder.
Yakuza 6 'After Hours Premium Edition'
- 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.
The Premium Edition is priced at $89.99/CA$119.99/£79.99/€89.99/A$129.99.
