Yakuza 6’s “Live Chat” Minigame Is More Hilarious than Sexy (But Still Very Sexy) [NSFW]

on December 9, 2016 4:55 PM

At the very beginning of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, we learn that protagonist Kazuma Kiryu has spent three years in jail. Such a long time behind bars must have left him with a few unsatisfied needs, and while he was never a prude, he turned into a bit of an old perv, and an hilarious one at that.

Apparently, as an old-style, stern Yakuza, he also isn’t very familiar with computers and the internet, so when a new friend invites him to try a sexy “live chat” at a local internet cafe in Kabukicho, the result is probably more funny than sexy (but they’re still rather sexy).

Takaya Kuroda’s voice acting is, as usual, awesome, as he portrays Kiryu between puzzlement, arousal and forced restraint, until he finally concludes “this live chat… is awesome!” with a completely straight face, and then goes full perv mode when he gets to chat on his own.

When you get into the chat itself, the game presents you with a button press minigame, prompting Kiryu to type hilarious comments like “oppai oppai!” (Boobs boobs!) or “horahora!” and more. Of course it’s a lot more funny if you know a smattering of Japanese, but even if you don’t, it’s still rather comedic to see the stern Kazuma focusing so much on trying to type while a sexy camgirl shows him some of her goods.

You can watch the recording of one of the sessions (running on PS4 Pro, but I doubt it makes much of a difference here) below. It features popular Japanese porn-star and model Anri Okita. Incidentally, I know. I’m a lot better at this than at Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Go figure.

Keep in mind that the content of the video can be considered slightly not safe for work. While no actual nudity is shown, there certainly is plenty of innuendo and sexy imagery.

I’m actually rather interested in seeing what the folks at Sega will come up with when localizing this, because the letter count and the topic combined will make it quite the challenge. The game will be released in early 2018 in North America and Europe, so we’ll know how they’ll solve the riddle then.
