Yakuza 0 will be on Game Pass on day one of its Xbox debut

Yakuza 0 has had quite the staggered release -- Japan in 2015, the rest of the world in 2017, and then a PC port in 2018 -- and the final platform is just around the corner. When it gets there, it'll be a day-one addition to the best s...

What's the most frustrated you've ever been with a mini-game?

Yakuza 0 comes to PC this week. It feels like word of mouth for Sega's strange and sweeping action-adventure romp through 1980s Japan is at an all-time high, and with its budget price, I'm hopeful lots of curious players become hardened fan...

Yakuza 0 will be getting some free DLC next month

Yakuza 0 is really great. It may possibly be the best Yakuza game released in the West thus far, but there was one strange omission: unlockable costumes. In some of the previous Yakuza titles, beating the game allowed you to select costumes...

Business meetings are super awkward at Sega Europe

Nothing screams the holidays like trading business cards. Wait, that can't be right... why would Sega PR lie to me? Either way, this new promo trailer for Yakuza 0 is high on the cringe factor and loaded with shots of that lovely business c...

Yakuza 0 still has all the zany mini-games

The Yakuza series may not be well known in the West, but any fan can tell you that the best feature is all of the crazy mini-games. Yakuza 0 looks to continue that tradition with a bunch of ridiculous scenarios and returning classics (Karao...

Yakuza 0 Business Edition pre-order is lackluster
