The release of Yakuza 0 is almost here, arriving on January 24, 2017 in North America and Europe on the PlayStation 4. To celebrate the occasion, and the holidays coming up, Sega has released a video skit regarding business cards, briefly showing off the stainless steel business card holder in the Business Edition of the game, while continuing to do some jokes. They have also released the following about Yakuza 0:
With Christmas around the corner it only seemed right for us to make a Yakuza 0 vlog that encapsulates the spirit of this magical time. Christmas is all about giving, so some folks from Marketing and Production sat down and decided to give each other their business cards. Oh look at the time. I have to return some videotapes, so check out the video below and have a holly jolly Christmas! Make sure to stick around to the end; you’re not too hip to be square, right?Yakuza 0 Features:
- 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 is being localized by SEGA® of America, Inc. and will be released physically and digitally in the Americas and Europe beginning Jan. 24, 2017. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 systems for $59.99 (with comparable prices throughout the Americas), and is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
