Way of the Dragon
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life looks and feels like the next-gen Yakuza that we've been waiting for. Taking the developer's Dragon Engine out for its first drive, this is the sixth (or seventh, if you count the fantastic Yakuza 0) mainline entry in SEGA's crime drama action role-playing game series, and it's bloody brilliant. The much...
SEGA's Yakuza or Like a Dragon series has been around since the days of the PlayStation 2, but only over the last half a decade or so has it really started to seep into the consciousness of a wider Western audience. This is largely thanks to 2017's Yakuza 0, which sparked a whole new wave of interest on PlayStation 4. It helped, of...
All your questions answered
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life launches this week on PlayStation 4. The final chapter in series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu's story, fans of the franchise will likely be diving straight in, but just in case you're new or perhaps a little unsure, we've put together this guide on the most frequently asked questions that we get...
Ever since his story ended in Yakuza 6
Please note this article contains relatively minor spoilers for Yakuza: Like a Dragon. When Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was billed as the final chapter in series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu's story, more cynical fans would have probably told you that he'd no doubt return at some point. But even with that...
Liam bids Kazuma Kiryu farewell
For the past month or so, I've been committing what some people would consider to be a video gaming sin. I started the story of Kazuma Kiryu back in 2017 with Yakuza 0 and ever since then, I have desperately wanted to see it through to its conclusion. Doing that presented some challenges, however. One of those was...
Kamurocho's true calling
If you've played a Yakuza game, then you already know how good the side activities are. Often far more in-depth than minigames have any right to be, these optional distractions can be ignored entirely -- or they can soak up hours and hours and hours of your life. I recently played through Judgment for review. Essentially a...
Just recently, PlayStation Access got the chance to interview Daisuke Sato, the producer behind SEGA's Yakuza series. It's a pretty interesting video (which we've embedded above), but there's one particular answer Sato gives that's absolutely spot on. When asked to sum up Yakuza in just a single sentence, Sato replies "it's difficult...
The song of life
The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, yeah. Makes us want to… Shut the curtains and play video games? That is how the ol’ Bob Marley song goes, right? Anyway, you know what time it is – it’s WAYP time. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’m still playing God of War, a game which still holds many secrets for me to discover...
English version available now in some countries
What the frig is the deal with Yakuza 6: The Song of Life? Delayed into April on the PlayStation 4, we’ve already played the title in its entirety and published our review. And now the release has popped up in South East Asian shops, with English subtitles, amid very
Available early this week
The demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was only made available for a short time, as SEGA inadvertently released the full game on the North American PlayStation Store and, understandably, quickly removed it. Having now been unavailable for a few weeks, SEGA announced yesterday that the demo will be making a return soon...
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is almost upon us. With only mere weeks left until we can all grapple with Kaz's latest adventure, a new video from PlayStation Underground has appeared to fill the time. It's a 25 minute video that dives into purely open world stuff, so there's no need to worry about spoilers here. We get a look at how...
It's Kamurocho, but not as we know it
We're all big fans of the Yakuza series here at Push Square Towers, so when SEGA (rather messily) released a demo of Yakuza 6 last week, we began swinging bicycles at each other in delight. Last year's Yakuza 0 was fantastic, telling a compelling origin story for main man Kiryu and series mainstay Majima, a
Following on from news that SEGA mistakenly stuck the entirety of Yakuza 6 on the North American PlayStation Store instead of the demo, Sony has taken action by revoking the licence to the demo. In the US, if you downloaded the demo, the app icon should now have a padlock in the bottom right corner, meaning you can no longer play it,...
The Final Journey of Kazuma Kiryu
The Dragon of Dojima will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family - be those ties through blood or bond - when Yakuza 6: The Song of Life releases in the West.
The game is coming to consoles only on PlayStation 4, and thanks to the new "Dragon Engine," is the most advanced Yakuza title to date.
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, Yakuza 6 is the ultimate iteration of the series' blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer.
