Stories of the Dragon
Throughout his journey, Kiryu’s strength has influenced countless others to awaken their own dragons and live their lives to the fullest. We revisit three individuals whose lives were changed after meeting Kiryu in “Yakuza – Stories of the Dragon”, a live action Yakuza short series filmed on location in Tokyo, Japan. The full series is available now on the SEGA of America YouTube channel!
Kiryu’s Clan Needs Members!
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life introduces the brand-new Clan Creator minigame, wherein Kiryu builds his own clan from the ground up to combat the unjust JUSTIS clan. He’ll need all the help he can get to take on the New Japan Pro Wrestling stars who rule over JUSTIS – Tetsuya Naito, Kazuchika Okada, and Hiroshi Tanahashi. Luckily, Kiryu can join the front lines himself and call on powerful allies to join his clan. Special leaders can be recruited with secret Clan Codes; those with trained eyes can find them hidden throughout the Yakuza Experience Site and our Yakuza social pages.
Other legendary leaders, including Goro Majima, Taiga Saejima, Shun Akiyama, and Makoto Date can be purchased in the “Add-Ons” section of the Yakuza 6: The Song of Life PlayStation Store page. No matter who your leaders may be, you’ll want to build your clan to fend off foes in the Six Lunatics Invasion event, which runs from 4/17 – 4/23, followed by additional Clan Creator events each week!
About Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
In Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Kiryu will find out exactly how much people are willing to sacrifice for family – be those ties through blood or bond – when he investigates a series of shadowy events that involve the ones he holds closest to his heart. He’ll journey to familiar grounds in Kamurocho and the new setting of Onomichi, a beautiful, sleepy port town in Hiroshima Prefecture, in order to find the answers he seeks. Powered by the brand-new Dragon Engine, the game is the ultimate iteration of Yakuza’s blend of gritty crime story, hyper-explosive combat, and all the vices and distractions those locales have to offer.
