A new trailer for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was uploaded, providing some backstory for the events that have led up to what is the final game for series protagonist, Kiryu Kazuma. As a warning, this story trailer does contain spoilers so those looking to avoid them should avert their eyes.
In Yakuza 6, Kazuma 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. 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. The trail leads him to his old stomping grounds in Kamurocho, where he discovers that she has been struck by a car and now lies in a coma. To make matters worse, Kiryu learns that Haruka now has a son that he must look after. With baby in hand, Kiryu journeys to the seaside town of Onomichi, Hiroshima to unravel the truth about Haruka, her son, and a sinister secret that the Hiroshima yakuza are harboring. 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.
Additionally, SEGA has revealed a new collector's edition for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, The Essence of Art Edition will come with a limited hard cover art book featuring over twenty artworks from the Yakuza fan community.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is scheduled for release in the West on March 20, 2018.
