Yakuza 0 arrives January 24 for PS4

SEGA has announced that Yakuza 0 will release on January 24, allowing you to take control of protaganists Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima when you pick up the game physically or digitally.

Yakuza 0 tells the origin stories of Kazuma Kiryu, the rising Dragon of Dojima, and Goro Majima, before he's known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, as they fight, hustle, flirt, and dance their way through the seedy underbelly of Japan. Taking place in a chilly but electric Kamurocho, Tokyo in December 1988, Kiryu's story follows his steady ascension up the ranks of the Dojima yakuza crime family until he gets blamed for a debt collection gone wrong. Kiryu must utilize his cunning and his fists in order to regain his honor and save the reputation of his father figure, Shintaro Kazama. Meanwhile, Goro Majima is running a popular cabaret in Osaka, but he wants more than anything to rejoin the yakuza clan that ousted him.

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 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 and will be released physically and digitally in the Americas and Europe beginning Jan. 24, 2017.

Can't wait for this - I was going to buy the Chinese or Japanese version the other day but decided to give them a few more weeks to announce the English version. Now all we need is info on the new Yakuza and hopefully a 1 and 2 HD translation on PS2>PS4 or remaster

haha yeah - I actually came here to tell everyone about it in the daily chat, but Joe just beat me to it :P Now I can get it and understand what they are saying - will still be Jap voices but with English text. I wonder if we will get a demo of Yakuza 6 with it like they did in Japan? That one looks awesome! I still have 3, 4 and 4 with zombies to play through haha!

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
