The Yakuza series has been in desperate need of a revamp for years. Anyone who reads this site on a regular basis will know that we're massive fans of SEGA's series, but let's face it: we've basically been playing the same game since Yakuza 3 launched on the PlayStation 3 back in 2010. Fortunately, the fantastic crime-drama storylines that the series thrives upon have been more than enough to keep us thoroughly hooked.

When it comes to Yakuza 6 - which is due out in the West in March of next year - we've got more than just another mob-soaked narrative to look forward to. The sequel, which supposedly tops off the tale of recurring protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, has been built from the ground up for the PlayStation 4, and it finally, finally features a brand new engine.

PlayStation Access has pumped out 15 minutes of gameplay footage, and boy does it look good. Yakuza has finally gone next-gen, and we can't wait to get our hands on it.
