Get a glimpse at Yakuza's Goro Majima in his early days
Fans of the Yakuza series are very familiar with the unhinged Goro Majima, but Yakuza 0 shows a glimpse of his life before he was known as the "Mad Dog" of the Shimano Family. A piece of that can be seen in a newly released trailer for Yakuza 0.
Since the game is a prequel to the series, players first meet Majima as a disgraced member of the Tojo Clan running the Grand Cabaret in Sotenbori, Osaka as a civilian. Due to a past transgression, his bosses have appointed him manager of the club and he's tasked with making a big profit in order to regain his yakuza status. Fortunately, Majima excels at the role, becoming a legend in the nightclub scene. Unfortunately, he's making his punishment look way too easy, so his handler has devised a harder test of loyalty -- one that involves blood. Majima must successfully perform his first hit.

The game is set to be released for the PS4 Jan. 24.
