FGE - The latest entry in the PlayStation exclusive Yakuza series is a prequel aimed at new and old fans alike. Set in the glitz and glam of 1988 Japan, the economic bubble during the era sets the stage for a mystery-filled, action-packed crime drama with plenty of twists and turns. While many may look at the series and write it off as Grand Theft Auto set in Japan, the Yakuza games are so much more than that. As a spiritual successor to the famed Shenmue series, the Yakuza games offer a tight, focused experience that’s satisfying from beginning to end. Yakuza 0 is the perfect entry point for new players looking to get into the series that started on the PlayStation 2.
