Watch Yakuza Zero's great '80s infused Tokyo Game Show trailer

The next entry in Sega's Yakuza — or Ryu ga Gotoku — franchise takes the Japanese gangster action back to 1988, when series regulars Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima were only in their 20s and Japan was in the midst of an economic boom. In Yakuza Zero, money plays a major role in gameplay — it's not just for throwing in people's faces, as in the Tokyo Game Show trailer above.

Watch Sega's most detailed look at Yakuza Zero so far, which takes place in Tokyo's Kamurocho and Osaka's Soutenburi districts, and features hostess clubs, discos and the now requisite highly-detailed, grizzled yakuza faces. Players will be able to run a cabaret club, call women on the phone for dates, manage properties and businesses for profit and wager on fights between girls.

Yakuza Zero is coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan in spring 2015. Sega hasn't announced a localized version of the game for North America, but it did confirm a Traditional Chinese translation for Yakuza Zero was coming to Asia earlier this week.
