Sega to hold Yakuza 6: Essence of Art Exhibit next month in Southern California

I love Gallery Nucleus. For years now, it has become the go-to place for special events centered on all things pop culture, including television, comic books and video games.

Over the years, we’ve seen various gaming companies such Sony, Square Enix and Naughty Dog hold special events at Gallery Nucleus, which displays (and at times selling) exclusive art pieces, live drawings and Q&A sessions. Next month, Sega adds its name to companies holding an event at Gallery Nucleus just one month before Yakuza 6’s release in the West.

On Saturday March 17, 2018, travel to Japan as Sega brings the Yakuza 6: Song of Life Essence of Art Exhibit to Nucleus from 3:00PM – 7:00PM, complete with special guests Daisuke Sato (General Producer of the Yakuza series) and HORITOMO (tattoo artist behind the Yakuza series). Both guests will also be signing limited copies of the Yakuza 6: Song of Life art book at the event.

Here is a list of announced events for opening night:

  • Daisuke Sato, the General Producer of the Yakuza series, and HORITOMO, the renowned tattoo artist behind the series, will be signing limited copies of the art book for those who pre-purchase the game at the event.
  • Over 30 pieces of tribute art on display created by fans and staff
  • Game artwork from the Yakuza franchise on display
  • Debut of exclusive Yakuza themed prints for sale
  • HORITOMO will be doing a live art demonstration at the event
  • Life-size Kamurocho Gate installation
  • Special announcement and Q&A during opening night
  • FREE exclusive Ono Michio-kun Pin to our first 200 attendees, refreshments, raffles, exclusive Yakuza 6 shirt for sale, and more!
  • Gallery Nucleus will have the premium and launch edition copies of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life for pre-purchase. With the purchase, you will receive the collector art books to be signed at the event. Game will be shipped on April 17th 2018.
  • Open to the public, FREE admission, no RSVP necessary.

If you’re a fan of the series, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this event, especially if you want to see Sega hold more events at Gallery Nucleus in the future or in general! I know I’d love to see them hold a Sonic, Shin Megami Tensei or a Persona-themed event!
