The final chapter in the legend of Kazuma Kiryu’ is a huge theme within (Yakuza 6). This was another big influence on my decision to make this game a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Since this is a large juncture in the story of Kazuma Kiryu, I wanted it to have more beautiful graphics and the ultimate quality to set the stage for it.

We initially embarked on the challenge of reproducing real life faces on the PlayStation 3, and our skills as creators has increased year by year. We can finally bring this to completion on the PlayStation 4. Actually, there are some scenes where the graphics are so good that you would mistake it for a live action.
He further discussed that for Yakuza 6 he wanted to create a deep story that would have a meaning in Japan’s history.
I wanted to create something that was a deep human drama, and also to set it somewhere with meaning in Japan’s history. With this in mind I considered places all across the country, and thought that Hiroshima’s Onomichi would be good.
