Fans of the long running Yakuza series rejoice, as Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will finally be releasing in the Americas and Europe on March 20, Sega announced today.
Sega also noted that Yakuza 6 marks the final appearance in the series of protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, although it should be noted that this doesn't equate to the end of the Yakuza series, as Yakuza series director Toshihiro Nagoshi hinted at earlier this year.
You can see the gameplay trailer for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life just below, and it looks as though the game will mostly be using the same fighting system as Yakuza 0, which launched in the west earlier this year.
Sega also revealed two new special editions for the release of the game, these being the Hardcover Art Book Package, and the After Hours Premium Edition, both of which can be seen just below.
Kazuma Kiryu once again leaves prison at the outset of Yakuza 6, just like he did in the original Yakuza, which re-releases later this month in the form of the remastered Yakuza Kiwami. Yakuza 6 takes the action back to Kamarucho, except this time with every line being fully voiced by a Japanese cast, unlike previous entries in the series.
Recently Mike considered if we really need Shenmue 3 when we have Yakuza Kiwami.
