Welcome to the Neon Jungle - Yakuza 0 Now Available
Sega have announced that Yakuza 0 is out now for PlayStation 4, a game that is set to take players back to the 80's and to the fictional red-light districts of Kamurocho, Tokyo and Sotenbori, Osaka, which are bursting at the seams for enterprising young criminals.
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. He'll need to complete a series of impossible tasks set by his bosses, but will these tasks push Majima past the point of no return?
