Yakuza 0 launches Jan. 24
Although it will be the entire holiday season before it arrives, Sega's long running gangster series Yakuza 0 has been announced to arrive Jan. 24 on PS4.
The press release describes the video game this way: "Although 1980s Japan appears to be a colorful wonderland on the surface, the bright lights and flashy clothes can only cover so much of the seedy Japanese underworld. It takes money, power and respect to keep this alluring illusion running, and it just so happens that Yakuza 0's two gangster protagonists are hungry for it all. Players will follow the genesis of Kazuma Kiryu, the rising Dragon of Dojima, and Goro Majima, before he's known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, as they pursue the almighty Yen. The Japanese thug life isn't all disco halls and phone clubs, because Kiryu and Majima will need to pass hellish trials and tribulations in order to be considered honorable Yakuza."
Although the game will be available in Japan for the PS3, it will be available in the West only on the PS4.
