It has been a long wait for fans of Sega’s Yakuza gangster series and they will be delighted to know that the wait is finally over for them. Yakuza 6 for PlayStation 4 has now been released in the United States. Yakuza 6 was initially released in Japan back in December last year and it was always known that the developers would require additional time to get the title ready for North America. It’s because the game is very story-driven so additional time was required to localize the text and voice for players in the West.
Now that Yakuza 6 for PlayStation 4 has been released in the United States, fans of the franchise who have been looking forward to the title will now be able to experience the fictional recreation of Tokyo’s Kabukicho.
The launch trailer that has been released today highlights all of the experiences that players can have in the game and aside from strolling down Kabukicho, they include relaxing at a cat cafe, singing karaoke, and obviously shooting stuff.
The title is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and has been described as a send-off to the series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Even though the name suggests that you need to have played the previous titles to understand what’s going on, those who are new to the franchise don’t need to play all of the previous titles to understand the story of Yakuza 6.
PlayStation 4 owners in the United States can now purchase Yakuza 6 for $59.99.
