PS4 Exclusive Yakuza 6 Also Coming to the West: Early 2018

December 3, 2016

During the PlayStation Experience keynote presentation hosted today by Sony Interactive Entertainment in Anaheim, California, Sega announced the coming of Yakuza 6 to North America and Europe.

The game will come west in Early 2018 exclusively for PS4, with both physical and digital download releases.

No trailer was showcased, but you can check out the one for the remake of the original Yakuza, Yakuza Kiwami hereKiwami will also be released in the west next Summer, adding to Yakuza 0 coming on January 24th, for a full-fledged Yakuza overload!

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is going to be released in Japan on December 8th, 2016. And to be fair, it’s worth mentioning that a little more than a year between the Japanese release and the western one is at least an improvement comparded to the two years of Yakuza 0.


If you want to see the game running on your own PS4 long before it will be released in the west, you can check out how to download the massive 33 gigabytes demo from the Japanese PlayStation Store.

If you’d rather not use all that bandwidth, but still want to see what Yakuza 6 is all about, you can enjoy two hours of PS4 Pro gameplay here.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
