Yakuza 6 and Yakuza Kiwami both had new trailers to show off at this year's E3 SEGA

Attention Yakuza fans, get ready to get excited! SEGA has released not one, but two new trailers today, one for Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life and one for Yakuza Kiwami. Let’s start with the old and work up to the new stuff.

First up is Yakuza Kiwami. In case you haven’t heard yet, this is a remake of the original PS2-era Yakuza , but with today’s technology. While the graphics have obviously gotten an overhaul, there have been many new additions to the game as well. These include over 30 minutes of additional cutscenes, extra story bits to tie the game into Yakuza 0, added minigames like pocket circuit car racing, upgrades to the combat system and more.

Another new feature is the “Majima Everywhere” experience. When playing through Yakuza Kiwami, Majima could be hiding anywhere, ready to pop out and challenge the player to a fight. The trailer’s description is sure to mention how Majima could be anywhere, including hiding in trash cans and crazy outfits.

Yakuza Kiwami will release exclusively on the PS4 on Aug. 29. The game will cost $29.99, and will be available both physically on store shelves and digitally through the PlayStation Store.

If you are a Yakuza veteran, you might be more interested in the newest trailer for Yakuza 6 . This trailer shows the main story for the game, with players trying to solve the mysteries of who tried to kill Haruka and who her baby daddy is. Because it’s a Yakuza game, you know this isn’t going to be a simple case to solve, and will likely escalate into some sort of huge battle between rival families. There are also likely to be countless ways to waste time such as karaoke, arcade games and a whole ton of other side activities.

Details still remain scarce for when Yakuza 6 will release in North America and Europe outside of a vague “early 2018,” but it has been confirmed there will be both physical and digital versions available once the game is ready.
