Goro Regains his Honor in Blood in Yakuza 0
To many Honor is the most important thing to have. It puts you in a state of worth and your morals define your characters. In this case, Goro Majima is a disgrace to his Tojo Clan and since this is a prequel to the series you will see him as a regular civilian. He is now appointed the role of manager of the magnificent Grand Cabaret in Sotenbori, Osaka. Let us take a look at this dandy new trailer.
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 Features:
- The Dragon’s Origins: What lies in a man’s past defines his future, and in this case, we learn a lot about what inspires Kiryu down the paths he takes in the rest of the Yakuza series. Plus, you don’t get to be called “Dragon” without being able to knock a few heads. Combat styles can be hot-swapped during fights for some of the most intense battles in the Yakuza series to date.
- Embrace the Mad Dog: For the first time in a numbered game, long-time NPC Goro Majima is now playable. With his own fighting style, abilities, and his penchant for turning sleaze into profit, stepping into the role of Yakuza’s most eccentric character will provide some eye-opening insight.
- The Decadence of the 1980s in Japan: Cash rules everything in the world of Yakuza 0, and in the game, there are a million ways to spend, make, or take money. From cash spilling out of the pockets of gang members, you fight to Telephone Clubs, Disco Halls, or even Pocket Circuit car races, there are tons of ways to be a well-to-do gangster.
