Yakuza 6: The Song of Life - Launch Trailer | PS4.
Yakuza 6 is an action-adventure game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. It is similar to that of other Yakuza titles with exploration mixed with arcade style over the top combat with ragdoll physics. A more advanced variant of Yakuza 5Bs Dragon Spirit Mode, called Extreme Heat Mode, is introduced, where Kiryu becomes temporarily invulnerable as long as his Heat remains, and his combo finishers can turn into Heat actions that take out immense amounts of health. Kazuma Kiryu returns as the main and only playable character and the game features locations of Kamurocho, Tokyo and Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, with just one fighting style returning this time like all titles before Yakuza 0 and Yakuza KiwamiI.
While recovering from his injuries from the previous game, a hospitalized Kazuma Kiryu is approached by the police, who plan to arrest him for his past crimes. Kiryu chooses not to resist the arrest and willingly spends three years in prison in order to live peacefully with the children he had fostered. Upon being released in 2016, Kiryu discovers that Haruka has disappeared to avoid public scrutiny, and that Daigo Dojima and Goro Majima were wrongly arrested for the burning down of Little Asia six months prior to his release. Kiryu returns to Kamurocho to search for Haruka, only to find out that she has been left in a coma after a hit and run incident, and that she has an infant son, Haruto. Unsure whether Haruka will recover from her injuries, Kiryu travels with the baby to Onomichi Jingaicho in Hiroshima to uncover the mystery of what happened to Haruka during his three-year absence.
Upon his arrival in Onomichi, Kiryu initially enters into a rocky, but growing friendship with the local Yomei Alliance's Hirose family and its members Tsuyoshi Nagumo, Naoto Tagashira, Takaaki Matsunaga and Yuta Usami. During Kiryu's investigation, he learns that elements of the Tojo and Yomei Alliance have been secretly manipulating events behind the scenes in order to maintain "The Secret of Onimichi." The secret is later revealed to be the hidden construction of an abandoned naval Yamato-class battleship at the end of the second World War. Haruka's hit-and-run incident is later to be revealed as part of a retaliatory attack against the Yomei Alliance by the Kamurocho-based Saio Triad, led by Yuta's father Big Lo. The reason for this attempt on Haruka's life is that Yuta entered a relationship with her and is the biological father of Haruto. Due to the negative connotations of an interracial relationship, and the fact that Yuta is unknowingly the biological second successor to the Saio Triad's leadership separated from his family back in China due to the country's one-child policy, the Saio Triad had deemed Haruto a threat to the Triad's bloodline, combined with the fact that they wanted to avoid all forms of rivalry breaking out into civil war. The Jingweon Mafia also becomes involved, including its leader Joon-gi Han, though after being defeated by Kiryu he is seemingly shot dead alongside Masuzoe, another heihaizi member of the Saio Flower Triad, before they can reveal the secret. An enraged Yuta later burns down Little Asia and attempts to kill himself and his father to protect Haruto and Haruka from further harm, though Kiryu defeats Yuta and saves them both, eventually threatening Big Lo to call off the hit permanently. Kiryu then returns to Onomichi to confront Hirose about the secret and defeats him, only to watch him get shot by Takeru Kurusu, aka Heizo Iwami, Tsuneo Iwami's father, and a dying Hirose later reveals that he was the one responsible for killing the fathers of Nagumo, Matsunaga and Tagashira to keep the secret hidden despite Heizo never having been advised to do so. Tsuneo later kills his father via Koshimizu and takes over Iwami Shipbuilding and eventually, the Yomei Alliance itself.
