Yakuza 0: English “Goro Majima” Trailer

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!
