The demo for Sega’s Yakuza 6 has just gone up on the PS Store – and while yes it may seem fun to give the title a try first hand before you buy it, the download size might make you think otherwise.
Before hitting the download button, make sure you have 36GB of free space on your machine. We have no idea why it’s sitting at such as large size (I mean, 36 gigs is bigger than many existing PS4 games out there). Hopefully, it’s indicative of either incredible texture quality or mass amounts of in-game content.
The demo allows gamers to play the prologue of the title – of which the save game continues over into the full game if you decide to purchase Yakuza 6.
‘Three years after the events of Yakuza 5, Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, returns in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life with the dream of living a quiet life. Upon his arrival, he discovers Haruka has been involved in an accident and has slipped into a coma, leaving her young son, Haruto, without care. To protect this child, Kiryu takes Haruto to the last place Haruka was spotted, Onomichi, Hiroshima. There, a new and merciless world of Yakuza awaits the unlikely pair. Who is Haruto’s father and why are the Tojo Clan and Yomei Alliance both after him? With some unlikely friends, Kiryu will have to navigate through the criminal underworld he left behind and fight for the answers to keep the family he loves safe.’
Yakuza 6 launches on PS4 exclusively on April 17.
