Today the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu had a batch of screenshots of the upcoming PS4 exclusive Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, that will be released in Japan on December 8th.

The screenshots showcase the fishing town of Onomichi, in the Hiroshima Prefecture, which will be the second location included in the game, alongside the traditional Kamurocho in Tokyo.

The reproduction of the city is nearly photorealistic, as you can see in the comparison below showing the game’s reproduction of the 1,200 year old Senko-ji temple (above) and the real thing (below, photo courtesy of Wikipedia).

In the gallery you can also see quite a few other locations, including the old shotengai (shopping street), the iconic ropeway climbing Mount Senkoji, the fishing port and more.
