Yakuza 0 Hands-on English Preview

Niche Gamer Plays is an ongoing video preview series where our staff take an in-depth and yet concise look at classic, current, and upcoming games across all current gaming platforms.

The western release of Yakuza 0 is rapidly approaching, and we’ve already gotten extensive hands-on time with the game.

To help curb your appetite for 1980s shenanigans in Japan, I recorded playing the game for roughly 20 minutes – you can view my playthrough above with some commentary.

Yakuza 0 is launching in North America and Europe for PS4 on January 24th. Expect our written and video review for the game very soon.

If you have any suggestions for a future Niche Gamer Plays video, please contact us!
