Demo coming February 27.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been delayed.
The news came in a tweet by the Yakuza Game account, which posted a statement announcing the new release date of April 17. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was previously slated to launch on March 20. The delay will give the studio “more time to line things up for launch,” and was described as a “tough business decision” the studio didn’t “make lightly.”
Before then, players will be able to go hands-on with Yakuza 6: The Song of Life on February 27, when a demo will be made available. The save data can be transferred over to the full version at launch.
“New plans” were also teased for the coming weeks, so stay tuned to IGN for more on Yakuza. In the meantime, check out our complete guide to Yakuza 6: The Song of Life’s preorder bonuses.
