What a time to be alive! If the excellent Yakuza 0 and upcoming Yakuza Kiwami weren’t already enough, SEGA is bringing Yakuza 6: The Song of Life to the PlayStation 4 next year. And via IGN, here’s our first look at the English language version of the game.

It sure looks like Yakuza alright, but series veterans will notice a number of improvements made possible with the title’s new-gen engine: battles are entered in real-time, for example, and the city of Kamurocho has been given a face-lift.

The video focuses on some general exploration, and also delves into a mission involving an individual with a selfie-stick. It’s a Yakuza game through and through – and we can’t wait to see more of it in action as we near its 2018 release date.
