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.
