Now Playing: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life English Trailer - E3 2017

New details are out this E3 for two Yakuza games getting western releases. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will take players back to Tokyo's red-light district in the latest instalment in the popular franchise.

The stakes have never been higher for Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, after someone comes after his surrogate daughter. As you can see in the official English trailer above, Kiryu finds out she has an infant son who he must protect at any cost, even if it means "mercilessly bashing thugs with various street signs."

Meanwhile, anyone who wants to play the series from the beginning will get the chance with Yakuza Kiwami. Kiwami is a rebuilt-from-scratch HD remake of the original PS2 game Yakuza from 2005. On top of upgraded graphics, the remake includes an extra 30 minutes of cutscenes that add "all-new insight into the game's plot and [create] common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0." There are also new features, side quests, combat updates, and fully re-recorded Japanese dialogue. Check out the trailer below.
