Better Clear Up Some Space On That PS4!
The demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is launching tomorrow on Tuesday and it’s going to be taking up a lot of space. Approximately 36.53 gigabytes, according to the demo’s PlayStation Store page.
The demo is just the prologue chapter of Yakuza 6 and players will be able to use the save data from the demo for the main game. In Yakuza 6: Song of Life, players will play as Kazuma Kiryu, an ex-yakuza who has just served a three-year sentence in prison and finds out that his surrogate daughter, Haruka, has been left in a coma as a result of an hit-and-run accident.
Now he has to take care of her son, a baby boy named Haruto, while also trying to unravel the mystery of what happened to Haruka during his stint in prison.
The game was originally slated for release on March 20th but it got delayed to April 17th. At the time, the developers described the decision to delay the game for another month as a “tough business decision”. In Japan, Yakuza 6 was released on December 8th, 2016 and was well-received with Famitsu giving a near perfect score of 39 out of 40.
According to the developers, this is going to be the final game in the Yakuza series that’ll feature Kiryu as a playable or major character. The next game in the series, presumably titled Yakuza 7, will feature a new protagonist named Kazuga Ichiban and is currently in development.
