Right from IGN we get the chance to see 17 minutes of Yakuza 0 gameplay in English! If you want to stay spoiler free on the story maybe wait until the game comes out next year! Don’t forget to preorder to get that sweet “The Business Edition!
For todays Famitsu Update we get a closer look at the new Xperia XZ and how it is replacing the start menu in Yakuza 6! From managing your weight to running the Kiryu Clan your cellphone is your lifeline to everything in Kamurocho and Jingaicho. There’s even an interview with Yakuza 6 director Sakamoto to give you guys more info on how the tie in happened. I didn’t think I’d be getting excited about a Sony phone in 2016 but I think this has sold me.
Looks like Sega’s going all in with this release not only are we getting a physical edition but we’re also getting a day 1 Business Edition filled with some awesome exclusive merch! All you need to do to make sure you get your copy is pre-order!
The 1980s in Japan were defined by unprecedented amounts of decadent overindulgence – and nothing was out of greed’s reach, especially in Kamurocho. A chilly but electric Tokyo in December 1988 is the backdrop for Kazuma Kiryu’s ascension into the ranks of the Yakuza – the name given to members of notorious crime organizations. And with Yakuza 0, newcomers to SEGA® of America, Inc.’s Yakuza series will be able to get in on the ground floor, with the game’s standalone, story-driven action that focuses on navigating the seedy underworld of Japan with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, and for the first time in a numbered title, players will be able to play as long-time NPC, Goro Majima – the Mad Dog of Shimano.
