Yakuza 6: Song of Life, Yakuza 6, Yakuza

PS 4 exclusive title developed by Sega, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is finally getting its world-wide release today on April 17th, following a fascinating fumble by the developers.

Reportedly, when Yakuza 6: The Song of Life’s demo was initially released for America, Europe and Australia on February 27th, it actually wasn’t a demo. In a truly staggering error and to the surprise of players everywhere the release actually contained… The whole game. The demo version has been subsequently pulled and the release of the English version delayed until, well, today.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life continues on the trends of its predecessors of being a fast-paced action-brawler set in Japan. The game puts emphasis on over-the-top action sequences as well as equally over-the-top, humorous yet heartfelt story with a whacky cast of characters. Exploration of the sprawling city-scape and generally bumping into all sorts of weird trouble, is also a big part of the game.

This series never really found mainstream audience outside of Japan, but it’s actually worth checking out for how crazy it is.
