Yakuza 6 release date announced, premium edition revealed

by on August 18, 2017

The final story of Kazuma Kiryu will be released on March 20th, 2018.

That’s both a physical and digital release for PS4, and there’s going to be an “After Hours Premium Edition”, which includes a set of glass bars. Yep, you read that right.

Here’s what the premium edition includes:

  • Hardcover Art Book – The intense human drama and magnetic world of Yakuza 6 will be on display in this stunning art book. We’ll have more details on what will fill the pages at a later date.
  • 2 Bar Glasses (280ml) – Designed with Kiryu’s ferocious dragon tattoo, these bar glasses are the perfect receptacles for your beverage of choice.
  • 2 Ice Stones – Cool down your drinks with a pair of heat action branded ice stones! One features the flame heat action icon, while the other has the Japanese “kiwami” heat action icon. Chilling has never been so… extreme.
  • 2 Coasters – A true yakuza knows how to relax with class, so coasters are a must have when lounging after hours. Protect table surfaces with style by placing your glasses on top of official Tojo Clan branded coasters. Plus, you won’t need to play the “is this my drink?” game because of their inverted colors!
  • An Outer Box – All of these essential tools will be housed within a collectable outer box.

We’ve got a gameplay trailer below, and a quick reminder that our review of Yakuza Kiwami will be up next week!


Yakuza 6 is also the first Yakuza game to be enhanced for the PS4 Pro outside Japan. While both Kiwami and 0 have been built on the same foundation, Yakuza 6 raises the bar a lot higher with visuals. It releases on March 20, 2018 for PlayStation 4.
