Sega have today hosted a small raw streaming event wherein which some lucky personalities got a chance to check out the upcoming video game “Yakuza 0”, to be released on the PlayStation 3 and 4, first hand. This new title, serving as a prequel to the entire “Yakuza” series”, will follow a young Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro as they go from being petty criminals to becoming two of the most revered Yakuza in fictional history. With updated graphics and a tweaked combat system, “Yakuza 0” is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated games that Western audiences may never get their hands on.
Yeah…not many fans of the series out there believe that “Yakuza 0” will be getting a release outside of Japan but I’d like to stay hopeful. Though this was a live stream by Sega meaning many missed out on what went on, they’ve gone ahead and posted it online so that the entire world can get a glimpse of what the upcoming game has to offer. This gameplay footage basically takes audiences around the older but somehow better looking districts of Kamurocho and Soutenbori, the places the game will be set in. Check out it below and keep praying for a Western release of the game. We need all the help we can get apparently.
