Yakuza 0 Will Be On Western PS4s In About A Year

on

Last December, Sega confirmed Yakuza 0, the prequel game in their long-running Yakuza series, was on track to be published in America. What we didn’t know yet was how long that track was. Today we found out it’s a pretty long track.

Yakuza 0 has been announced for “early 2017,” according to Sega. In Japan this game was released on both the Playstation 3 and the Playstation 4. Americans will get just the PS4 version. It’s just as well since the game was designed on the PS4 and ported down. Given the choice between the two, you want the best version, 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 abilities 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.

Sega has also released the first Western Yakuza 0 trailer. Here’s everything you’ll have to wait a year to play, unless you speak Japanese:
