PS4 Exclusive Yakuza 6 Gets New 1080p Screenshots and Info in English

on September 15, 2016 2:35 PM

Today Sega released a batch of screenshots and a press kit in English, including the first information on the game officially translated in a language most can understand.

Keep in mind, that this doesn’t mean that the game will be necessarily released in the west. Some developers just have press releases in English for Tokyo Game Show, to help out the gaijin media.

Incidentally, not all the screenshots in the gallery are new, but this is the first time they’re presented in full 1080p, so I thought I’d include them for your viewing pleasure.

But without further ado, you can check all the info below. The translation is a bit rough, but I guess it adds to its charm.
