...and tells the origin stories of Kiryu and Majima

The first details on Yakuza Zero come by way of Famitsu, where we learn Sega's PS4 and PS3 action title is set in 1988 and tells the origin stories of Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima. Because of course it does! With a title like Zero, anything else would have just been silly.
