With Yakuza 0‘s release date drawing closer, Sega revealed a new trailer for one of the series’ most memorable characters: Goro Majima. However, those used to the wild antics from the first game, or even his appearance in Project X Zone 2, will find things a bit different for him here, as the trailer shows.
Fans of the Yakuza series are very familiar with the unhinged Goro Majima, but Yakuza 0 shows a glimpse of his life before he was known as the “Mad Dog” of the Shimano Family.
Since the game is a prequel to the series, you’ll first meet Majima as a disgraced member of the Tojo Clan running the magnificent Grand Cabaret in Sotenbori, Osaka as a civilian. Due to a past transgression, his bosses have appointed him manager of the club and he’s tasked with making an exorbitant amount of money in order to regain his yakuza status. Fortunately, Majima excels at the role, becoming a legend in the nightclub scene and making cold hard cash hand over fist. Unfortunately, he’s making his punishment look way too easy, so his handler has devised a harder test of loyalty…. one that involves blood. Majima must successfully perform his first hit. Can he do what needs to be done, or will his job be derailed by unforeseen circumstances?
Yakuza 0 is set to release in North America and Europe for the PS4 on January 24, 2017. Special Editions have also been announced for the game awhile a go too. You can also go here to find out more information about the game.
