Sega has today put out a new video for the upcoming Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, the latest entry in the long running series which gives us a brief overview of how Kazuma Kiryu got to where he is by the events of this game.

In addition, Localisation Producer on the game Scott Strichart has posted on the PlayStation blog some of the challenges of localising the game for a Western audience, including how UI elements had to be adjusted for a baby comforting mini-game, just in case you thought the series had ditched its many weird and wonderful side-activities.

Scott also mentions the return of fan-favourite activities such as the very popular karaoke minigame, as well as several missions that will 'have some great social commentary about technology and the way people use it (or fail to use it) that’s universal around the world.'

I'm not sure if that social commentary is part of the whole punching of sharks bit, but I'm intrigued.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is set to land as a PlayStation 4 exclusive on March 20 2018.
