Sega announces a January 24, 2017 release date for Yakuza Zero

Available in Japan for over a year now, Sega has officially announced that Yakuza Zero will be released throughout North America and Europe on January 24, 2017. In development exclusively for the PS4, Yakuza Zero travels back to the 1980s to tell the story of how Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima began their rise within the ranks of the infamous organized crime syndicate:

Yakuza Zero 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?

Yakuza Zero will be available as both a digital download through the PlayStation Store, and as a Blu-ray disc release at your favorite game retailer. In case you missed it, the game’s E3 trailer has been embedded above.
