Sega have today confirmed the prequel title to the popular Yakuza series, Yakuza 0, will be coming to both North America & Europe in “early 2017”. A possible European iteration were previously in doubts when Sega stated that they were “not able to confirm a Yakuza 0 EU release” when the game was announced at PSX in December last year. Thankfully, European fans will get to play the game alongside those across the pond in the Americas.
Yakuza 0 takes place in December 1988 within Kamurocho, a fictionalized recreation of Tokyo’s Kabukicho and Shinjuku Golden Gai areas and follows the actions of Kiryu and Majima before they claimed their titles of Dragon and Mad Dog during the events of the original series. Sega have so far not confirmed any specific release date or month beyond this description. Check out the new Legends trailer below.
