Yakuza 6 is the first entry in SEGA's seedy series to be developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4, and this tech trailer demonstrates just how far the visuals have advanced as a consequence. Shown during a 10th anniversary commemoration event in a Tokyo theatre overnight, the video gives us a good look at Kamurocho's rain stricken streets, as protagonist Kazuma Kiryu kicks the crap out various gangster goons.

The lighting is particularly impressive, and apparently the project is only 60 to 70 per cent complete, so there's plenty of room for further improvements. According to director Toshihiro Nagoshi, the studio's building this game around the idea of "freedom", and we get a glimpse of that in the clip as the Dragon of Dojima is shown jumping across roof tops and squeezing through gaps. The demo will be included with PS4 copies of Yakuza Kiwami next year.
