No one likes to hear about a delay, but this bit of news for Yakuza 6 certainly softens the blow. The official Yakuza Twitter account shared that the game is being pushed back an entire month to April 17, but a demo will arrive on February 27. It will be the first chance to play the game and the save file from the demo can be brought into the full game.

Yakuza 6: Song of Life was originally supposed to arrive March 20, 2018. One month isn't too terrible, though. Are you excited to play Yakuza 6? If you want a peek at gameplay, the devs shared a glimpse into the Clan Creator feature on the Twitter account. The Yakuza franchise is known for mini-games that players get absolutely lost in and this one looks as intense as any. Yakuza 6 launches April 17 on PS4. That extra month gives you some time to play through an HD remaster if you haven't yet.

      I just finished Yakuza 0 last week and am now on Yakuza Kiwami. After playing through 0, I wish I had played through them all in the order they came out and then gotten to play 0 as it would have been such a treat to fill in the back story off all these amazing characters.

        I can understand this. I'm doing it the wrong way too.
