After a few bumps in the road, Yakuza 6, the latest entry in Sega's long-running gangster series is finally available for purchase in the US. That means you can finally take a stroll down the game's fictional recreation of Tokyo's Kabukicho for yourself. The game was released in Japan last December, but given how story-heavy it is, it took awhile to localize all the voice and text for Western audiences. That's fine though -- early word is that the narrative is one of, if not, the best, in the franchise and a fitting send-off to protagonist Kazuma Kiryu.

Now the question for PlayStation 4 owners is whether they want to explore a life of crime this week or bond with their son while killing creatures ripped out of Norse mythology. A tough choice to be sure, but you can only sing karaoke, hang with a newborn baby, chill out at a cat café and shoot sharks with a speargun in one of them.
