A brand-new title that depicts Kazuma Kiryu’s story after the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Featuring improved combat, new stages, and characters, an abundance of entertaining minigames, and a star-studded cast!

An Untold Story from Kazuma Kiryu’s Point of View – What must you sacrifice to protect the ones you love?


Having faked his own death to protect his loved ones, Kazuma Kiryu, the once-renowned yakuza, now lives in obscurity.

He occasionally receives missions as a secret agent for the Daidoji Faction, a shadowy organization that once operated as a fixer for the government. Kiryu’s very existence is kept a closely guarded secret within Daidoji. There he languishes away each day in his self-imposed solitude. Until one day, somebody arrives to drag Kiryu back into the fold.


Dynamically switch between the Yakuza and Agent fighting styles in visceral melee combat. With the Yakuza Style, strike fear into enemies by unleashing wildly aggressive moves powered by Kiryu’s unparalleled strength and flair. Alternatively, up the ante with the Agent Style by delivering blows with absolute speed and precision, while using an array of high-tech gadgets like electrified bind wires to stun enemies and then send them flying.

Strategically adapt to the situation and leverage both styles to dominate and destroy hordes of enemies.
