SEGA of America has unveiled the E3 2016 trailer for Yakuza 0, giving us a taste of what’s to come when it launches in the West early next year. Set in a “chilly but electric” Tokyo in December 1988, the game is all about fighting with rage and style because “being wrong is dangerous.”
The trailer comes with the following description:
The 1980s in Japan were defined by unprecedented amounts of decadent overindulgence – and nothing was out of greed’s reach, especially in Kamurocho. A chilly but electric Tokyo in December 1988 is the backdrop for Kazuma Kiryu’s ascension into the ranks of the Yakuza – the name given to members of notorious crime organizations. And with Yakuza 0, newcomers to SEGA of America Inc’s Yakuza series will be able to get in on the ground floor, with the game’s standalone, story-driven action that focuses on navigating the seedy underworld of Japan with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, and for the first time in a numbered title, players will be able to play as long-time NPC, Goro Majima – the Mad Dog of Shimano.
Yakuza 0 will be localized for the West and will be available via retail and digital stores.
