In Yakuza 0, Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima will have quite a lot at stake as they struggle to get back into the good graces of the Yakuza. What can they do to wind down? Why, engage in all of the excess and vice that 1980s Japan has to offer, of course!
Some examples of what you will be able to do include popping into the disco club Maharaja to tear up the dance floor, singing your heart out in the Heroine Karaoke Bar, hitting up a batting cage, placing a bet at the Japan Catfight Club, and visiting the SEGA HI-TECH LAND in order to play some titles such as Super Hang On, Out Run, and Space Harrier.

Here are the key features:
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 styles 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.
Yakuza 0 is being localized by SEGA of America, Inc, and is currently scheduled to arrive on January 24, 2017 for the PlayStation 4 in both physical and digital formats.
