The game looks to be on sale again at Amazon.
Both Amazon and EB Games have the special “Essence of Art Edition” for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life on sale for $14.99 .
It’s been this price before around March (and at that time, that was the lowest it’s been) and a couple more times after that, and stock sold out pretty quickly on Amazon almost every time.

Amazon product: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life – Essence of Art Edition – PlayStation 4
I’m a big fan of the series. 4 is my favourite, I’d place 6 in second or third interchangeable with kiwami. Some things are better like the seamless world design, and other things not so much, like the character upgrades. It kind of lacks content imo, but makes up for it with a good clan creator mode. The story really needs you to suspend disbelief sometimes, and it has really high highs and low lows. It’s a game for Kiryu fans, as he plays a bigger part than ever, if that makes sense. I’d recommend this game even for people who never played a Yakuza before. All of them are fantastic as standalones, as the story and world are very inviting.
