SEGA has officially announced that Yakuza Zero will be released in early 2017 in North America and Europe. The game will be available in both physical and digital formats.
Set seven years before the events of the original game, Yakuza Zero will allow players to experience Kazuma Kiryu's ascension into the ranks of the Yakuza. Players will also get the chance to play as Goro Majima, the Mad Dog of Shimano.
According to Sega, Yakuza Zero is the perfect opportunity for newcomers to dive into the series, as it offers an action-packed, story-driven adventure from the very beginning of Kazuya's story, one that focuses on navigating the seedy underworld of Japan.
The game will feature the Japanese voice over and English-only subtitles in both North America and Europe.
