Kazuma Kiryu brings people together, whether it's helping random couples with their love troubles, smoothing out relationships between criminals, or giving Yakuza players a common appreciation for the long-running series. Yakuza 6 gives the hero a new way to unite people, with the introduction of a clan-creator minigame. Think of it as a slightly more violent version of the series' hostess clubs. OK, it's a lot more violent.

Kiryu will be able to recruit a variety of different foot soldiers for his clan, which can be leveled up through battles. Those battles are fairly ambitious affairs, featuring dueling teams of up to a dozen combatants each. Players assume the role of battle tactician, giving commands to Kiryu's men and helping them take on enemies – including the Six Lunatics. You can see the lunatics and more in the video below.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is coming to North American PlayStation 4s on March 20.
