We’ve also got a new trailer that shows the fateful event that kicks off Kiryu’s storyline in Yakuza 0. Since the game is a prequel to the series, we first meet Kiryu as a young and eager member of the Dojima Family who’s ready to climb the ranks. However, when the owner of a debt he’s sent out to collect winds up dead, Kiryu gets put squarely under the heel of his family. It’ll be up to him to figure out who was responsible, and why…But naturally, the highly coveted Empty Lot in the middle of Kamurocho surely has nothing to do with this, right? Right.
