Sega has confirmed that Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will officially release in the west in March, over a year after it was originally launched in Japan.
Those interested in spending extra to make a memorable purchase can set their eyes on the “After Hours” Premium Edition. It contains two bar glasses, two coasters, and two ice stones alongside the game itself; all bundled in a collectible box. The Premium Edition will set players back by $90, while the standard version of the game will release with the usual price tag of $60. Take note that pre-ordering will net a free hardcover art book, which doubles as a disc holder.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was first announced at the Tokyo Game Show (TGS 2015) and later launched in the country in December 2016. It has taken some time to convince the publisher for a localized version for the west but we are nearly there.
The plot of the new installment in the series sees the main protagonist Kazuma Kiryu surrendering to the police and spending three years in prison in order to live peacefully afterwards with the children he had fostered. However, upon being released, he discovers that Haruka was involved in a hit-and-run accident that left her in a coma. Kiryu then starts to probe into the incident, which leads him to back to the life he had sworn to never be a part of again.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is scheduled to release on March 20, 2018, for PlayStation 4.
