VIDEO: "Yakuza 6" Clip Briefly Introduces Beat Takeshi's Character

Next entry in the main series hits PS4 in Japan next year

One of the best things Sega has revealed so far about Yakuza 6 is that it will feature a character played by non other than actor/director/comedian Takeshi Kitano, also known as Beat Takeshi. Known for helming a bunch of acclaimed yakuza films himself—many will also remember him from his role as head instructor Kitano in Battle Royale—Beat Takeshi is a no-brainer inclusion, and you can see the first footage of him from the latest Sega-nama Niconico livestream below.



This could be the next best Beat Takeshi-related video game moment, second only to Shinya Arino playing through his Famicom game, Takeshi no Chousenjou, to kick off the incredible Game Center CX series.


Yakuza 6 is coming to PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2016.
