Following the release date announcement for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life on March 20, Sega has revealed that it will be delayed until April 17 in America and Europe.
However, the company will be releasing a demo for the sequel that will be available on February 27 in the PlayStation Store. In addition, all the saved data from the demo can be transferred to the full game once it has been released.
Here’s the full message of the announcement:
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life‘s release is being moved back a month to April 17. This was a tough business decision we didn’t make lightly. But—with bad news, we also have some good—this gives us more time to line things up for launch, and on February 27, the demo for Yakuza 6 will be available and will allow players to bring their save into the game on release. This will be the first time everyone will have a chance to play the game (a moment we have long been anticipating!) and we can’t wait to hear what you think about it. We have many new plans to reveal over the coming weeks to give you all more insight into the series, so stay tuned!
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be coming to PlayStation 4.
