The Yakuza series is set to take you into the past with the upcoming release of Yakuza 0 for the PlayStation 4. Today developer SEGA released the release date of this Japanese-flavored brawler.

Taking place in 1980s Japan, Yakuza 0 has players taking control of a younger, more green Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima. According to the press release:

Kiryu must utilize his cunning and his fists in order to regain his honor and save the reputation of his father figure, Shintaro Kazama. Meanwhile, Goro Majima is running a popular cabaret in Osaka, but he wants more than anything to rejoin the yakuza clan that ousted him. He’ll need to complete a series of impossible tasks set by his bosses, but will these tasks push Majima past the point of no return?
