Sega has announced that Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be released for the PS4 on March 20, 2018. The Song of Life will be the final game to star Kazuma Kiryu, and he’ll get to go out with a bang in the first game in the Yakuza series built from the ground up for new-generation consoles:
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.
Sega has also announced a plan to offer Yakuza 6: The Song of Life in a special After Hours Premium Edition. Priced at $89.99, the After Hours Premium Edition will include a copy of the game, and everything you need for an evening of entertaining:
