Yakuza 0 arrives in Early 2017 for PS4

SEGA has announced that the long-awaited Yakuza 0 is coming to Europe in Early 2017.

Available for PlayStation 4 both physically and digitally, Yakuza 0 is the origins story of Kazuma Kiryu and details his ascension into the ranks of the Yakuza - the name given to members of notorious Japanese crime organisations. 

Newcomers to the Yakuza series will be able to experience the action-packed, story-driven adventure from the very beginning of Kazuya’s story, one that focuses on navigating the seedy underworld of Japan while Yakuza fans will have the added joy of also getting the chance to play as long-time NPC, Majima Goro - the Mad Dog of Shimano.

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.
- Possession is 9/10ths…: Yakuza 0 will get a physical release in Europe! More details on the retail edition will come at a later date.

YES!! I just love SEGA releases ^0^ ^0^!! ST, STOCK this, I'll pre-order it as long as it possesses a collector's edition! Might be playing this by that time on the new PS4 4k edition as long as that were to have a 2TB drive o_0!! Also, make sure ShopTo gets retailing dibs on the forthcoming Dengeki Bunko Ignition PS4 and PS Vita releases ^0^ ^0^ ^0^!! I just LOVED the trailer to this (Yakuza 0) when it first got mentioned in 2015; here are the snippets from the reveal trailer: 'Tokyo 1988' (that's when my Upperclass Lebanese cousin was born o_0 ^0^!), 'Getting rich is easy', 'The Women are beautiful', 'And everyone wants in on the action', 'A time of euphoric craze', 'A time to become a man' and 'A time to become a Yakuza' ^0^ ^0^!!

1 and 2 were remastered for PS3 in Japan, so I hope that one comes out over here, but on PS4 if possible. I would love for all of them to be PS4 compatible but I don't think 5 sold that well so I don't think they will enhance any of the older ones. PS2 versions would be cool though cos they are already English, just need emulating.
