    Synopsis


    Explore the world of the Japanese crime syndicate in Yakuza 6. While Kiryu has been in jail, the world has changed, people moved on, but family is always family. Explore the streets as you track down his family and discover exactly how much people will sacrifice for family in Yakuza 6.

    Features


    Yakuza 6: The Song of Life "After Hours Premium Edition"

    Includes the Game, Hardcover Art Book, two Bar Glasses, two Ice Stones, two Coasters in a Collectible Outer Box.

    In Yakuza 6, Kazuma Kiryu will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family - be those ties through blood or bond - when he investigates a series of shadowy events that involve the ones he holds closest to his heart

    From the unparalleled realism of the new setting of Onomichi, a beautiful, sleepy port town in Hiroshima Prefecture, to the latest evolution of Kamurocho, the biggest red-light district in Tokyo

    Enter the "Dragon Engine" - Explore the world of Yakuza like never before. Yakuza 6 is the first current-gen Yakuza title that was developed from the ground up for the PS4

    Introducing the seedy Japanese underworld with detailed visuals, lifelike animations, a new physics engine, interactive storefronts, seamless transitions and more

    Explore Kamurocho reborn and the scenic views of Onomichi - The hypnotic lights, opportunistic inhabitants, and hedonistic distractions of Kamurocho look better than ever

    Revamped minigames like karaoke, hostesses, and more, have been streamlined for maximum pleasure, and new additions like the RIZAP Gym, Cat Café, and Clan Creator are the purrfect distractions after a long night of bashing heads!

    It's time to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to play tourist in beautiful Onomichi. This tranquil coastal community is home to plenty of local activities like bar mingling, spearfishing, and more!

    Let the bodies hit the floor - Yakuza 6 Kiryu is a battle-hardened veteran when it comes to the art of street fighting. Although he utilizes one fighting style this time around, you best believe Kiryu hits like a truck

    Devastating combos and bone-breaking Heat Actions make a return, but now the Dragon of Dojima can fill up a meter to engage Extreme Heat Mode. When activated, Kiryu glows blue and unleashes heavy-damage combos

    Fully voiced japanese audio - For the first time in series history, every line and piece of dialogue is fully voiced in Japanese. Let the dramatic story and absurd humor of the series unfold like an interactive foreign film experience

    Yakuza 6 is the ultimate iteration of the game's blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer

    For a single player

      FULL REVIEW: https://wp.me/p4T35p-fS7 Let me address a few questions that you may have. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is not as fun as last year's Yakuza 0. That does not mean it is bad, but you will miss elements like Majima and Mr. Shakedown. The game is very nostalgic in its storytelling and has a tone, not unlike the first Yakuza (Kiwami). This is the culmination of twenty-eight years in the life of a now beloved, badass character. Remember that he is basically a tragic hero, so do not expect all sunshine and rainbows. I think that fans of the series will enjoy the plot. Regardless, do not be afraid to make this your jumping on point as the story is standalone. I mentioned that this game has glitches but there is nothing nearly game-breaking to worry about. For some reason, the internet likes to make comparisons to Grand Theft Auto. I can assure you that GTA V and Online have many more technical issues. As of the publishing of this review, I have put in at least a full day (24 hours) of play time. The biggest complaint I have is the inability to turn off the auto-save. Despite five separate save files I have to wait until my next playthrough to experience certain moments again. This is because the auto-save does not necessarily overwrite the file you are currently using. I hope a patch allows it to be disabled. As a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life must be experienced unless you hate the genre. It is literally one of the games that further justifies and enhances your purchase of the console. Not to mention that fan support has shown SEGA that this franchise is just as popular outside of the Asian market. I make a big deal about games not being worth their price tags; this is not one of those instances.

      END OF AN ERA

      Posted
      MasterRowdyBarrera

      This is the final game for Kazuma Kiryu-- though not the final Yakuza game. But this is the end of Kiryu's decade long story, a beautiful story might I add. I purchased the After Hours edition and it was VERY worth the purchase. The photos do not do justice to the bar glasses or ice stones, the designs look much better in person and the glasses feel nice and cold, most of all with the ice stones in them. The art book is full of fan art and also a lot of design art for characters, and the game comes in this cool collectible box. I love this purchase, and it's the first collector's type of game I've bought and it's definitely worth a buy. I loved it, and now I'm going to go play the game! Ciao!

      HUGE IMPROVEMENT from Yakuza 0. Obviously 0 had some stuff that was better... but overall this is a much more polished product. The difference is that this game was made for the ps4... so you're going to see a huge difference in graphics. I think this is a great place for people to start who aren't sure where to start in the series. There's 7 main games... 0 came out last year... they recently re-made part 1 for the ps4 (it was a ps2 game) then there's part 4 & 5 on the ps3. I'm not sure if part 2 was on the ps3 as well.. if not it was on the ps2. This is more of a fighting game... but you can use a lot of things in your environment as weapons. There are weapons and stuff you can buy... but they dont last very long. You're going to be doing a lot of punching and kicking... this is not GTA i think this is a must buy for anyone who likes stuff like this.

      Yakuza 6 is a great game, but since this is the review for the After Hours Edition, I will focus on what comes with it. * Art Book: Your standard game art book, but with the addition of some fan art included. NOTE: The book is located at the very bottom of the box, hidden underneath the glasses. * Whiskey glasses: Screen printed with dragons, standard bar glasses otherwise. Almost certain they are NOT dishwasher safe. * Coasters: Normal cork coasters with Yakuza designs on top *Whiskey stones: Well made with good weight to them. The designs on the stones disappear when wet, but once dry the designs return Honestly a really good amount of stuff for the price, and great for getting you in the right mindset for the game.

      My experience with the Yakuza series started with 0 when SEGA made the brave decision to bring Kiryu and Co stateside. With 0 having critical acclaim and Kiwami 1 doing very well, a jump to 6 might confuse some people. Fortunately SEGA added excerpts in the main menu to get everyone on the same page. The battle systems are not quite as crisp as 0 (Maybe Kiryu has gotten older and forgotten some of his moves?) but he's still a powerhouse. The story is quite satisfying and the twist caught me by surprise. Don't worry about missing Kiwami 2-5, as they'll be coming stateside. Enjoy Yakuza for what it is.

      The game itself is what you'd come to expect from the Yakuza games. It's more polished and has better graphics, but it's still that great Yakuza gameplay we've come to love. Now onto the LE. It's a great LE for fans of the series. The black box with the two famous tattoo designs it all comes in is just a beautiful piece to put on display. The coasters have clan kanji on them they look really awesome. And finally the glasses are SO much better quality than i was expecting. I was expecting small shot glasses, but these are nice sized alcohol glasses. Mine weren't broken fortunately, but one of my friends glasses were broken so be careful!

      Awesome collectors edition for the money

      This is a quick review of the collectors edition, not the game.The glasses are thick and have plenty of detail on them (and are made out of glass, not plastic), the ice stones are a decent weight and come in a black bag, and the art book while pretty short has some excellent art in it. To top it off the outer box looks great, and everything inside is incredibly well packed, no worries about UPS destroying it. In summary, the items included in the collectors edition are definitely worth the extra $20 - $30 over the regular priced game.

      Each standalone Yakuza game is a continuation of the saga, so trying to jump into #6 without knowing much of the previous titles will be more challenging despite some backstory summaries. Yakuza is the closest to Shenmue where you roam the heck out of Tokyo and do a lot of stuff that are not really related to the overarching story. A lot of these are "time wasters" but in #6, most of them are not. The saga is getting a bit repetitive and dull but it is still a fun adventure game.
