Review: Yakuza

Monday, August 7th, 2017

01

The first game in Toshihiro Nagoshi’s hugely successful Yakuza franchise is a fascinating little game because it showcases a lot of familiar elements that will stay with the series all the way to present day. Yakuza is an incredibly accomplished first entry in a series that has simply reiterated on its template instead of taking it in a completely different direction.

“Business Edition” of Yakuza 0 Revealed for North America

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

yakuza0business

Yakuza 0 is launching in the West early next year (Early 2017 for Europe but a firm January 24th 2017 date for the US) and those lucky Americans get a launch-day “Business Edition” of the game which includes a stainless steel business card holder that includes 3 cards based on characters and places in the actual game. As long as you pre-order the game in North America you will receive a Business Edition which means this edition basically takes the place of what is normally labelled a “day one” edition aka the first print run of the game.

You can also check out a new trailer for the game by clicking below. You can also watch the slightly different European version of the trailer (different release date, no mention of the Business Edition) by clicking here.

As if the release of Yakuza 5 wasn’t exciting enough, SEGA has also committed to releasing Yakuza 0 in the West.

There aren’t much in the way of specifics, but the game will be releasing in Western regions on PS4. There is some confusion as to whether the game will make it to Europe but the trailer confirms a European release while SEGA Europe are being indecisive about whether this is the case or not.

No release date or any details regarding a physical or digital release are available at this time. However there is a rather tasty announcement trailer which you can watch below:
