Yakuza 6 Demo Removed from US Playstation Store Due to Full Game Unlock Exploit

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The Yakuza 6 demo has been removed from the US Playstation store after some users found an exploit to allow them to play the full game.

The demo itself is 36.53gb in size and actually contains all the data for the full game, except the demo was designed to lock players into a small portion of the game with their progress being carried over to the full game on release day (17th of April 2018).

The full game exploit appears to be exclusive to the American version of the demo as the demo is currently still available on the UK and Australian Playstation store-fronts. If this changes then we will be sure to update this story.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life delayed to April 17th, Demo Announced

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been delayed in The Americas and Europe to April 17th, from its original release date of March 20th.

The delay was revealed in a tweet from the official Yakuza Twitter account, but there was some good news with the bad too – on February 27th, the game will be getting a PSN demo. Progress made in the demo will also be carried over to the full game, giving a great incentive to those who are already dead-set on buying the game regardless.

Delays are always a bit of a shame, but if it results in a better product at the end, there’s no qualms here – and SEGA have promised to fill the void with some fresh Yakuza content in the meantime, too. Roll on April 17th!

IGN have also posted 7 minutes of direct feed Sonic Forces gameplay that showcases the PS4 Pro version of the game. Worth mentioning is the brief look at the avatar menu which sees the customer character wearing some rather snazzy Mega Drive-branded footwear.

Next up we have a new trailer of the PS4 Yakuza remake, Yakuza Kiwami. The game will release on August 29th 2017 and if you pre-order now you can secure a limited edition steelbook case. Check out the new trailer below:

Finally we have a new trailer for Yakuza 6 which also reveals the game’s subtitle, The Song of Life. The trailer reveals a portion of the game’s story which sees Kiryu discovering that Haruka has had a baby and Kiryu is trying to learn who the father is.

Takeshi has a long career as an actor, director, comedian and talk show host and is one of Japan’s biggest names. Most of his Western exposure comes from his appearance in Battle Royale and terrible 1995 sci-fi Johnny Mnemonic alongside Keanu Reeves and Dolph Lundgren.

In Japan, Takeshi has starred and directed in some amazing works of cinema including a fantastic reboot of Zatoichi based on the legendary blind swordsman and he has a reputation for directing gangster films. Exciting news for fans of his work.
