From what I read, fans in Japan were very mixed on 6.

A lot were torn on the ending (I kinda was too), a fraction of the content that Yakuza 0 provided, and had poor performance. So this led to some pretty poor word of mouth traction after the initial release. It wasn't until Kiwami 2 from what i've seen that fans were universally back on board with the series. Most people chuck Kiwami 2's sales as it not being a mainline entry and being the first solo console entry of the series since 5. So it'll be interesting to see how well Shin Yakuza performs now.

Admittedly I do have mix feelings on Yakuza 6 as well, but I thought the decline began before 6. But yeah it will be interesting to see how Shin does. 

Yeah Yakuza 6 was the first noticeable FW drop in Japan, at about 220k~ when Yakuza 0, 4 and 5 all sold about 330-360k FW

From what I remember the Chinese release made up for the poor FW in Japan. It could be Yakuza burnout but we won't know for a minute.
