Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is coming West on March 20, 2018. This installment in the Yakuza franchise marks the final chapter for protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. The last story for the Dragon of Dojima will be available for PlayStation 4 when it launches in The Americas, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
Powered by the new Dragon Engine, Yakuza 6 brings a gritty crime story and explosive combat to life. This story brings players back to Kamurocho as well as to the new setting of Onomichi, a port town in Hiroshima Prefecture. The shadowy events that take place will test the bonds of family for Kiryu and those closest to him.
In this final chapter for Kiryu he will use only one fighting style including the return of “Heat Action”. However, there will be the addition of a meter that can be filled up to engage “Extreme Heat Mode”. Extreme Heat Mode will enable combos to deal heavy damage making punches more formidable than ever.
