SEGA has produced the next main character trailer for Yakuza 0 , featuring the secondary protagonist and fan favorite Goro Majima.
Yakuza 0 is going to be an exciting game for Majima. As we all know, the Majima of Yakuza 0 is a very different man compared to the rest of the mainline games. In the preview trailer, we see a man who was tortured by the Yakuza and lost his eye, saying such things as he’s been “ready to die” for a long time. What we see in Yakuza 0 is a subdued Goro Majima, one who is sensitive and sedate. His story will be a journey from this man, to the Mad Dog we all know and love.
Watch the trailer below! And view an excerpt of SEGA’s press statement on the video!
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?
