Yakuza 6 Minigames Get A Bit Crazy


Sega and PlayStation have today uploaded a Yakuza 6 minigames trailer to the official PlayStation YouTube account, demonstrating some of the fun you’ll be having when you’re not bashing heads.

The trailer which runs for one minute shows minigames such as darts, karaoke, baseball, Club Sega games, weight lifting, dating, and even settling a baby on the bustling streets of Japan.

Check out the official Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Minigames trailer below:

 

  • Enter the “Dragon Engine” – Explore the world of Yakuza like never before. Yakuza 6 is the first current-gen Yakuza title that was developed from the ground up for the PS4, introducing the seedy Japanese underworld with detailed visuals, lifelike animations, a new physics engine, interactive storefronts, seamless transitions and more. That’s right! Fights can start on the streets and end in a pile of shattered glass, scattered snacks, and bruised bodies on the floor of the nearest Poppo convenience store.
  • Explore Kamurocho Reborn and the Scenic Views of Onomichi – Speaking of Dragon Engine, the hypnotic lights, opportunistic inhabitants, and hedonistic distractions of Kamurocho look better than ever. Revamped minigames like karaoke, batting cages, darts, hostesses, and the SEGA arcade have been streamlined for maximum pleasure, and new additions like the RIZAP Gym, Cat Café, and Clan Creator are the purrfect distractions after a long night of bashing heads! But it’s also time to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to play tourist in beautiful Onomichi. This tranquil coastal community is home to plenty of local activities like bar mingling, spearfishing (think action-packed rail shooter … with fish), and more!
  • Let the Bodies Hit the Floor – Yakuza 6 Kiryu is a 100% certified thugifed OG, so that means he’s a battle-hardened veteran when it comes to the art of street fighting. Although he utilizes one fighting style this time around, you best believe Kiryu hits like a truck. Devastating combos and bone-breaking Heat Actions make a return, but now the Dragon of Dojima can fill up a meter to engage Extreme Heat Mode. When activated, Kiryu glows blue and unleashes heavy-damage combos with his fists or any “tool” that’s close at hand. Painting painful masterpieces has never felt so good.
  • Fully Voiced Japanese Audio – For the first time in series history, every line and piece of dialogue is fully voiced in Japanese. Let the dramatic story and absurd humour of the series unfold like an interactive foreign film experience.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life launches exclusively on PlayStation 4 on March 20, 2018
