Yakuza 0 - Playstation 4
Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the original Yakuza game and takes place 10 years earlier. The game story takes place in both Kamurocho (modeled after Kabukicho red light district in Tokyo) and Osaka, and focuses on two protagonists, Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro. The story is told in chapters and switches between protagonists every couple of chapters. Even though story entails both areas and both protagonists, Kiryu and Goro don't meet throughout the game and each of them struggles with their own demons and ways to get back to become the full yakuza as known from other games in the franchise that were released before this prequel.
Both Goro and Kiryu have their own unique fighting styles which get introduced as the story progresses, with ability to spend money to upgrade fighting styles. Similar to gameplay in earlier Yakuza games, fights are initiated by running into a random encounter which is comprised of various gangs and other yakuza, some of which can be avoided by running the other way. The player can buy/sell weapons and items, equip own weapons or pick them up from fallen enemies, use objects around you (i.e. bicycles, chairs, neon signs, etc.) during the battle, use health drinks to regain health point and replenish heat mode which is used to perform special devastating attacks, talk to random characters on the street and perform side quests, learn new fighting moves from certain characters, and more.
