Yakuza 6 – Delayed, But Demo Coming Soon!

Sega’s upcoming new game Yakuza 6 was supposed to be released on the PS4 in March, but they have now made an announcement that the game will be delayed until spring.

“The Dragon of Dojima will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for the family – be those ties through blood or bond – when Yakuza 6: The Song of Life releases in the West.

The game is coming to consoles only on PlayStation 4, and thanks to the new “Dragon Engine,” is the most advanced Yakuza title to date.”

Don’t be too upset though, according to Sega they will be having a demo for Yakuza 6 AND while the release is delayed, its only delayed (so far) for a month. Sega has mentioned of course that this was a difficult decision for them to make about Yakuza 6, but that they wanted to make sure the game was released with quality in check.

I think we can all appreciate that.

You can check out the official announcement below:

The demo for Yakuza 6 will be made available very soon – February 27th in fact!

“The demo will allow players to experience some of the early goings of the gameplay in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Better yet, there will be the option to save your game and carry over your progress into the full game when it does release, both digitally and physically, for the PlayStation 4 in April.”

In order to keep fans of the series interested in the game, Sega will drip feed content, videos and images for the game.

Since the game will be delayed a month, you now have more time to pre-order.  There are a few different editions of the game.  You can see those differences below, as well as check out the purchase links for the game.
