Today Sega released the demo of the upcoming PS4 exclusive Yakuza 6: The Song of Life on the Japanese PlayStation Store, and if you don’t want to go through a 33 gigabytes download to be teased by a game that probably won’t come west for a long time, you have come to the right place.
YouTube user motch51 uploaded a whopping two hours of gameplay from the demo, with the additional bonus of running it on PS4 Pro. Unsurprisingly, it looks fantastic.
The demo includes the first half of the first chapter, but comes with a ton of content, including some of the many minigames that will be shipped with the game. We get to see exploration, combat, karaoke, plenty of dining, training at the gym, and the traditional batting center.
Of course, seeing the game running on your own screen is much better, so if you have 33 gigs of bandwidth to spare, you can find out how to download it here. I played some of it when I needed a break of maturity from Prompto, and it was really worth it.
All we have to do now, is to wait for Sega to see the light, and to understand that maybe it’d be worth localizing this series a bit faster. I fully appreciate that Yakuza games tend to be a bit wordy, but two years for something you don’t even have to voice is ridiculous.
