Also there's a bit of an Arena fighting mode shown. It's a good demo and all but I'm not sure if you'd really wanna take a day off for it.

From watching the official Yakuza stream I think they've said the demo will be the first chapter of the full game. Would make sense considering the save data can transfer over.

Kotaku had a hands-on playthrough with Sam Mullen recently.

Just finished kiwami on legendary. With all my stats leveled up in new game plus it was less of a challenge than doing the game on normal mode except for the shooting segment, that part was pretty frustrating especially since when you lose you have to do all the fights in the restaurant beforehand.

That car chase was such a pain. Can't recall how many attempts that took me.

In other news Yakuza 4 & Yakuza 5 are now on PlayStation Now. I may be tempted to play Yakuza 4 again over the week's trial period..

The only installment I need to play is Kenzan, where Kiryu is Miyamoto Musashi

I hope one day we can get a game starring Kazama so we can get an idea of what 1960s or 1970s Japan was like. That’s when Yakuza were really husslin until the end of the eighties

Weird, I guess they haven't put it up in Europe then since the games don't appear in the app and are not listed as games available on the playstation website.

Yakuza 6 digital pre-order is live for £50. Nice to see as an added bonus the Deluxe Edition includes Yakuza 0 for £60. There's also a PS Plus discount of 10% for each title.

I actually gave up on playing through Kiwami a second time just because of that God damn shooting stage.

Lol the last part with the truck played out almost identically to my playthrough. One more hit and I was dead.

August 28th!

Must be the quickest Japanese to English localisation turnaround so far since Kiwami 2 was announced for Japan late last year?
