Watch us sing karaoke, get framed for murder and beat up Sega

“That’s for what you did to Sonic the Hedgehog”

Last week, we launched our new video series, Yakuza 0 to 60, in which we explore the world of Japan through the game Yakuza 0. In our second episode, we get to experience that most beloved Japanese pastimes: karaoke.

This isn’t just regular karaoke, either. This is the kind of karaoke that turns into a real-life, rad-as-hell metal concert.

There’s much more beyond the singing, too. Yakuza 0’s plot gets going in this episode, as protagonist Kiryu finds himself framed for a murder he didn’t commit. We also get into some fist fights, including one against none other than Sega himself. Yes, Sega is apparently a Japanese hooligan.

Check out the video yourself above, or if you missed the first episode, you can go back and watch that below. And stay tuned for next week, when we’ll meet a very special Yakuza 0 character and continue exploring the grimy streets of Tokyo.
