On the game's official Twitter feed, it has been announced that Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be delayed from 20th March to 17th April. No real reason was given, but we assume the game needed that little bit of extra time to get everything polished up as much as possible.

The statement continues, announcing that there will be a demo made available on 27th February. Any progress made in this demo will be transferable to the full game, so it seems worth a download.

Here's the statement in full:
