Yakuza Zero: The Place of Oath Release Date Announced

By   /   Oct 27, 2014

Yakuza Zero: The Place of Oath will release in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on March 12, series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has revealed during a recent livestream.

Sega is still quiet on whether the game will make it out of Japan and reach the shores of the western regions. The last title to be released in other regions was Yakuza: Dead Souls, and since then Yakuza 5 and Yakuza Ishin have been released but only for Japan.

The popular franchise has a following in the west as well and these circles would be keeping their fingers crossed for a western release.

The prequel will take place in December of 1988 in Kamurocho, Tokyo and Soutenbori, Osaka. Players will fill the shoes of a young Kazuma Kiryu who will be accompanied by a 24 year old Majima Goro, both of whom have made frequent appearances in the Yakuza franchise.

The story of the upcoming title relates to the events that took place in the first title of the series, which means that you can expect to see some of your favorite characters from the original title return.
