Hard to Beat

Yakuza 6 is being built exclusively for the PlayStation 4, and boy does it show in this first ever video. SEGA debuted the footage during a NicoNico livestream yesterday, and it shows Japanese actor Beat Takeshi's character in all of his new-gen glory. The facial modelling has always been good in the Yakuza games, but this is clearly a step forward from the PlayStation 3.

The title's due out in Japan next year, with the cross-gen remake Yakuza Kiwami set to precede it in January. As with anything Yakuza, we're excited – but we always try to temper our hype, because there's no guarantee that this will release overseas. Are you impressed by what you're seeing here?
