Sega’s Yakuza 0 Coming To North America


Earlier in the year Sega, with the help of Sony, brought over an English translation of Yakuza 5, their open-world Japanese mob simulator. At the time there hadn’t been an English version of a Yakuza game in some time, but they were willing to take the chance and test the market again. The market must have responded positively, because the next Yakuza game has now been confirmed for a North American release.

Called Yakuza 0, it’s a prequel to the first Yakuza. A trailer was shown off at Playstation Experience, where the English version was first announced. According to the video, it takes place in 1988, a time of disco dancing (maybe Japan was a bit behind the West culturally). You’ll meet the new cast of characters and see one of them throw a motorcycle at somebody.

No release date was announced for the English version, but it will be a Playstation 4 exclusive, like Yakuza 5 was.
