Yakuza 6 will knock your teeth inside-out next spring in North America

The Yakuza franchise is having a breakout year for itself. We can’t even mention the letters “GotY” without Joey Davidson jumping into a manic rant about Yakuza Zero. At the end of this month, the remake of the original Yakuza will be released as Yakuza Kiwami in North America.

And finally, the English speaking world has a release date for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. It’s a miracle and a half, but we’ll be entirely caught up on the series next spring when Yakuza 6 releases on March 20.

Naturally, SEGA is going to release a premium edition, and Yakuza 6’s is aptly named the “After Hours Premium Edition.” It will retail for $89.99 and contain plenty of content.

  • Hardcover Art Book
  • Two Bar Glasses
  • Two Ice Stones
  • Two Coasters
  • An outer box

It’s been a long, hard fight, but the Yakuza franchise being localized almost in its entirety makes me believe anything can happen in the video game world.

Yakuza Kiwami is due for release on the PlayStation 4 on Aug. 29, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will follow for the PlayStation 4 on March 20, 2018.
