North American fans of the Yakuza series received a double dose of good news during Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2015. It was announced that Yakuza Zero will infact be coming west to the PlayStation 4.
Releasing sometime next year, Yakuza Zero is a prequel to the Yakuza series set in the late 80’s. Alongside the news of Yakuza Zero was the release date of Yakuza 5. Yes, the game will finally come to North America this Tuesday, December 8th for the PlayStation 3. Watch the announcement trailer for Yakuza Zero below to see why the 80’s were the time to become a man, a time to become Yakuza.
It is good to see that both of these titles will finally be coming west after being available in Japan for awhile now, especially Yakuza 5. I guess late is better than never.
