Sega has released a new series of live-action Yakuza 6: The Song of Life trailers that explore the legend of protagonist Kazuma Kiryu through the eyes of a few memorable characters who had small but important roles over the course of the Yakuza series.
“Fans will remember Tatsu, Yuina, and Haruka from the substories ‘Prodigal Son,’ (Yakuza: Kiwami), ‘The Bouncer’ (Yakuza: Kiwami), and ‘Another Haruka’ (Yakuza 5),” Sega senior PR manager Jacob Nahin said on the PlayStation Blog. “In this series, we catch up with each of these characters as they remember the time they crossed paths with the Dragon, who not only put himself in harm’s way to save them from danger, but also demonstrated a generosity and resolve that changed their lives for years to come.”
Each trailer was filmed on location in Japan and provide a new look at the legend of Kazuma Kiryu, as those who live in his world see him.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is available now for PlayStation 4 in Japan, and will launch on April 17 in the Americas and Europe.
