Yakuza Special Announcement Teased for Yakuza 6 Art Show

Gallery Nucleus is partnering with Sega to celebrate the art of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

Gallery Nucleus, an art gallery in Alhambra, California, has hosted exhibits centered around video games like Ratchet and Clank and Overwatch in the past. Now Gallery Nucleus is partnering with Sega to host an event showcasing art in celebration of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. The press release also states that there will be a special announcement and Q&A during the opening night.

The exhibit will host Yakuza series general producer Daisuke Sato and tattoo artist HORITOMO, whose work can be seen in-game, as they sign limited copies of Yakuza 6 art books for those who pre-purchase the game at the event.

There will also be over 30 pieces of tribute art on display as created by fans and staff, along with game artwork from the Yakuza franchise on display. HORITOMO will also be doing a live art demonstration at the event, though I don't think he'll be tattooing anyone.

While this is probably a must-go event for Yakuza fans, the promise of a special announcement from the series general producer is quite tantalizing. Will a new Yakuza localization be announced at the event? Here's hoping, considering how much we loved Yakuza 0 last year, and are looking forward to Yakuza 6 in just a few months.

The event will take place on Saturday March 17 from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The first 200 attendees will receive an exclusive Ono Michio-kun pin. For help with Yakuza 6, check out our Yakuza 6 guide.
