Nightlife Looks Ridiculous in Yakuza 0

Set in the 1980s, Yakuza 0 is part of a long-running series of action-adventure games based in the organized criminal element of Tokyo – the Yakuza. While the element of realism was never the series’ strong-suit, the kind of silly and bombastic drama fans have come to expect from the series doesn’t cease to amuse. It’s no wonder then that Yakuza 0’s collection of side activities and mini-games, painted in the guise of Tokyo’s nightlife from over thirty years ago, all at least looks like fun. Granted, it’s hard to make an accurate take on how something looks when the in-game characters doing these things seem like their having such a fantastic and dedicated time. The two playable characters in Yakuza 0 – series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima – star in this latest trailer for the game, highlighting the “fun side” of 80’s Japan.

Check out the “Fun Side” trailer below. Yakuza 0 is set for release in North America and Europe next year on January 27, for PlayStation 4.
