The Yakuza franchise is a long-standing series that is known for its powerful crime-laden characters but also for its hilarious randomness seen in-games. This is most prevalent in the mini-games often featured in the Yakuza series and SEGA has released a brand new trailer showing off what the 6th game has in store - and it doesn't disappoint. Pet-able kittens, random babies (the baby, of course, being Haruto), those sick, sick dad bods ... the latest trailer has it all and you can check it out for yourself in the video up top.
The latest trailer is perfect for those that want to work on their fitness but don't actually want to go anything, as the gym mini-game so eloquently shows. Even if you're not huge into the Yakuza franchise, the video is worth it just to watch Kiryu strum it up on the ukulele.
Regardless of which mini-game tickled your fancy the most, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is available now in Japan, with a March 20th NA and EU release this year on PlayStation.
"In Yakuza 6, Kazuma Kiryu will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family - be those ties through blood or bond - when he investigates a series of shadowy events that involve the ones he holds closest to his heart. Fresh out of a three-year prison sentence, an older and weathered Kiryu comes to find out that his surrogate daughter, Haruka, has gone missing from the orphanage he looks after. The trail leads him to his old stomping grounds in Kamurocho, where he discovers that she has been struck by a car and now lies in a coma. To make matters worse, Kiryu learns that Haruka now has a son that he must look after. With baby in hand, Kiryu journeys to the seaside town of Onomichi, Hiroshima to unravel the truth about Haruka, her son, and a sinister secret that the Hiroshima yakuza are harboring.
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 the game's blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer."
