yakuza-0

Via press release SEGA of America has released a new Yakuza 0  video containing an interview with SEGA of America Localization Producer,Scott Strichart. In the interview he gives players a rundown of what they can expect to see in the upcoming release. You can check out the interview below:

Here is a list of the game’s features straight from the press release:

  • The Dragon’s Origins: What lies in a man’s past defines his future, and in this case, we learn a lot about what inspires Kiryu down the paths he takes in the rest of the Yakuza series. Plus, you don’t get to be called “Dragon” without being able to knock a few heads. Combat styles can be hot-swapped during fights for some of the most intense battles in the Yakuza series to date.
  • Embrace the Mad Dog: For the first time in a numbered game, long-time NPC Goro Majima is now playable. With his own fighting style, abilities, and his penchant for turning sleaze into profit, stepping into the role of Yakuza’s most eccentric character will provide some eye-opening insight.
  • The Decadence of the 1980s in Japan: Cash rules everything in the world of Yakuza 0, and in the game, there are a million ways to spend, make, or take money. From cash spilling out of the pockets of gang members you fight to Telephone Clubs, Disco Halls, or even Pocket Circuit car races, there are tons of ways to be a well-to-do gangster.

Yakuza 0 will release on the PlayStation both physically and digitally in the Americas and Europe Jan. 24, 2017  and will retail for $59.99

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    I’m honestly amazed we’re still getting yakuza games in the west since the entire franchise hasn’t even sold 1 million units in NA, good on SEGA for bringing this over though

    • Panpopo

      Yeah I am grateful. Usually we have to wait years inbetween releases so this is nice.
