Fans of the Yakuza series in the West have been wondering about when they could expect Yakuza 0 to arrive in the West after the company announced back in March that they were localizing the title. Now today Sega delivered the news that these fans were waiting for by announcing that Yakuza 0 will be released in North America and Europe on January 24, 2017 and will be available both physically and digitally in both regions.

For those who haven’t been following the game, Yakuza 0 tells the origin stories of Kazuma Kiryu, the rising Dragon of Dojima, and Goro Majima, before he’s known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, as they fight, hustle, flirt, and dance their way through the seedy underbelly of Japan. Taking place in a chilly but electric Kamurocho, Tokyo in December 1988, Kiryu’s story follows his steady ascension up the ranks of the Dojima yakuza crime family until he gets blamed for a debt collection gone wrong.
