Yakuza 0 Launching In North America and Europe on January 24
Launching exclusively on the PS4, but available at retail, too.
Yakuza 0, the next entry in the Japanese crime sim series that was due for a localization, will be finally available for wester gamers to play come next year- Sega today confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that Yakuza 0 will be launching exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on January 24 next year- and unlike the localization of Yakuza 5, which saw only a digital release, this game will be available digitally and at retail.
“If you’ve only heard some friends shout ‘Play Yakuza!’ from the rooftops of the internet, Yakuza 0 is the perfect game to get into the series,” localization producer Scott Strichart enthused on the PlayStation Blog.
“Yakuza 0 is a prequel to all the previous games, where our grizzled yakuza-with-a-heart-of-gold protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, is a bright-eyed 20-year-old, fresh into the game. Meanwhile, Goro Majima, the guy with the snake-skin jacket and the hot streak of insanity, is a suave and calculated owner of a cabaret. He actually wants to get back into the yakuza.”
So, if you are fans of open world games, or crime action games- then Yakuza 0 may just be what the doctor ordered. Definitely look into it.
