Sega has released a new trailer for Yakuza 0 focused on Goro Majima, one of the game’s two playable characters, showing a glimpse of his life before he became the “Mad Dog” of Shimano Family.
Here’s an overview of Majima, via Sega:
Since the game is a prequel to the series, you’ll first meet Majima as a disgraced member of the Tojo Clan running the magnificent Grand Cabaret in Sotenbori, Osaka as a civilian. Due to a past transgression, his bosses have appointed him manager of the club and he’s tasked with making an exorbitant amount of money in order to regain his yakuza status. Fortunately, Majima excels at the role, becoming a legend in the nightclub scene and making cold hard cash hand over fist. Unfortunately, he’s making his punishment look way too easy, so his handler has devised a harder test of loyalty…. one that involves blood. Majima must successfully perform his first hit. Can he do what needs to be done, or will his job be derailed by unforeseen circumstances?
Yakuza 0 will launch for PlayStation 4 in the Americas and Europe on January 24, 2017. In the Americas, pre-orders will be upgraded to a special Business Edition.
