Yakuza 6 coming to Japan Dec. 6 on PlayStation 4

The “final chapter of the legend of Kazuma Kiryu” will launch in Japan on Dec. 6 on the PlayStation 4, SEGA has announced. The game’s full title is Yakuza 6: Inochi no Uta (Poetry of Life), according to Gematsu.

Along with the announcement, SEGA also published a new trailer for the game.

SEGA released a demo for the game in January, and you can read our preview here, but here’s a synopsis of what we had to say:

With still months to go until the games release, there is plenty of time for the Yakuza team to add the extra layer of polish needed. It almost feels like a crafty marketing campaign, releasing the demo of Yakuza 6 around the launch of Yakuza Kiwami. This is as Kiwami still has the same old problems as previous entries in the franchise, while the Yakuza 6 demo addresses a lot of these issues. Clearly the PS3 version of the game is holding Yakuza Kiwami back from being something great. Going between the two different games is like night and day – and that’s certainly something the development team of Yakuza 6 would be proud of. It feels like a fresh new start that the series so desperately needs.

SEGA has yet to announce whether Yakuza 6 will be released in the West, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for some good news soon!
