While there's a ton of stuff to do on the side in the Yakuza series, it just wouldn't be the same without its brawlin' action. Sega's latest English preview for Yakuza 0 hones in on that, showing off a bunch of moves to get you ready to hit the streets ahead of the prequel's January 24, 2017 launch.
Sega finally seems to know what its doing with the Yakuza series in the west, so two more entries have been announced for localization. Both Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6 were announced for North America and Europe, with the former coming out in summer 2017. Read on for more.
If you're excited to be getting your hands on Yakuza 6 when it finally makes its debut, you'll definitely want to check out the first hour of gameplay footage, placed online by Famitsu. Hit the jump for more!
Another Yakuza announcement during Sega Fes 2016 concerned the upcoming live-action net drama series, which is officially set to premiere on GEO Channel on November 30. Yakuza: Poetry of the Soul spins an original gangster yarn that centers on a group of Kamurocho toughs who look up to series lead Kazuma Kiryu. Hit the jump for a promo and more.
One of the new features in Yakuza 6 is Clan Creator, which lets Kazuma Kiryu gather his own clan and lead them into big team battles against the evil JUSTIS organization. Sega recently shared Clan Creator footage at Sega Fes 2016, and you can see the 50-minute demonstration after the jump.
We're less than a month out from the Japanese launch of Yakuza 6, and that milestone was recently celebrated in an appropriately named "One Month Before Release" live stream. If you're in the mood for an extended preview, you can sit back and relax for around 40 minutes of Yakuza 6 gameplay footage after the jump.
Whether you want to shine or want power, they're all coming to the figma line of poseable figures. Today, Good Smile Company has launched pre-orders for the first of Max Factory's take on Love Live! Sunshine!! with Aqours' leader, Chika Takami. That April release is followed by a decidely more violent Goro Majima from the Yakuza games. Get a look after the jump.
Yakuza 0 is all about dialing things back to the beginning, so Sega's latest trailer does just that for co-protagonist Goro Majima. See a sample of his life before his days as the "Mad Dog" of the Shimano Family in the video after the jump.
If you want a pretty succinct setup for Yakuza 0's story and the way its two protagonists intertwine, there's probably no one better to talk to (in English) than localization producer Scott Strichart. That's exactly what Sega does in the latest behind the scenes video, so dig in after the jump.
Yakuza 0 is coming out in English! In case you forgot, IGN has come to the rescue with 17 full minutes of gameplay showcasing the first time players ever lay eyes upon that Mad Dog of Shimano, Majima Goro. Hit the jump to check it out!
