Yakuza 0 takes you back to square one

Yakuza 0

With 5 main games in the series Sega’s Yakuza franchise is quickly becoming more and more inaccessible to newcomers. To alleviate this and ease in new fans, as well as give the series’ veterans reason to get invested, Yakuza 0 will take you back before the events of the original and will follow Kazuma Kiryu rise into the underground world of the Japanese Triad.

The game will be set in 1980’s Japan, in the familiar location of Kamurocho. Our protagonist Kiryu, a then Junior member of the Dojima family, gets blamed for a deal gone wrong which resulted in murder and now Kiryu must regain his honor and reputation. Around the same time Yakuza’s iconic anti-hero Goro (The Mad Dog) Majima is running a cabaret but strongly desires to be accepted back into the fold and for the first time in the main series will become a playable character.

Yakuza 0 is scheduled to release early 2017 and will be a PS4 exclusive. Unlike the last Yakuza game, 0 will thankfully have a physical release for both North America and Europe.
