Yakuza 0 Localization Producer Scott Strichart takes us Behind the Scenes

More Yakuza 0 marketing?! You better believe it. Keep these coming SEGA!

Yakuza 0 is one of the best jumping in points for those new to the series, but there’s still a little bit of legwork to figure out what’s going down in Kamurocho (the fictional red light district of the Yakuza series) when players take control of protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima next year.

Kazuma Kiryu Will Risk Everything in Yakuza 0

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.
