Yakuza 6 guide

Everything you need to navigate a life of crime

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is mostly a movie about punching. But when the cutscenes end, there’s plenty to do to fill your time (until the next cutscene starts). All of the options can get overwhelming and pretty hard to keep track of, though, so we’re here with a series of guides to help you manage your time in the game. You’ll find guides for just starting out and fighting along with maps and walkthroughs for some of the game’s collectibles below.
