The Song of Life will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in the USA on March 20th, 2018, publisher Sega announced today.

Sega has promised this will be "the most technologically advanced Yakuza title to date", as Kiryu travels to the new seaside town setting of Onomichi where he must investigate the life of his surrogate daughter, Haruka.

Yakuza Kiwami will be launching at the end of this month and bringing the original game back in remade form, but today we're learning that the next game in the series now has a western release date.

Yakuza 6 is the first game in the series to be fully developed using the PS4 specific Dragon Engine, and also marks the first time where every piece of dialogue is fully voiced in Japanese.
