Yakuza Zero site updated with story, locations, young Kiryu and Majima!

With the official reveal of Yakuza Zero we get to see what Kiryu and Majima look like in their 20’s and the graphical boost they’re getting thanks to the PS4!

The locations shown are Kamurocho and Soutenburi. The extra level of detail on the next gen console is truly outstanding.

The story will revolve around young Kazuma Kiryu when he was a debt collector for the Tojo and young Majima as he attempts to run a cabaret club in Soutenburi. Kamurocho redevelopment is just getting underway with proposals to make the area more friendly instead of controlled by gangs and building the millenium tower.

Tons more info to come at TGS and if you want to know more the guys over on the Yakuza Forums are translating everything!

Did Yuriy see Zeira? (FT Zero Chapter 2)



One of the puzzling things about chapter 2 of Fairy Tail Zero is that Zeira appears to be alive, even though the events in chapter 1 seem to suggest that she died. Mavis is able to see Zeira, but who knows whether what she’s seeing is an alive Zeira, or her spirit/ghost?

Yuriy’s use of “defenseless little girls” in the panel above makes it sound as though he’s referring to both Mavis and Zeira (and implying that he can see Zeira as well), but the Japanese text actually uses お嬢ちゃん, which MS has translated as “Missy” in all other instances. The word used is in singular form, suggesting that he’s only referring to Mavis.

What truly happened to Zeira and whether she’s still alive are still open questions, seeing that we don’t have any proof as to whether Yuriy was able to see her. I’m sure the following chapters will provide us with more clues though!

Oh wow! Oh geez! I’m really surprised with how many EarthBound-related news we got today, right?

I wasn’t expecting both Ness and Lucas to be confirmed for Smash, right!? And even some new Assist Trophies and items from the MOTHER series!

I also wasn’t expecting a MOTHER/EarthBound collection to be announced! And it’s going to be released worldwide?? Nintendo really listened to us, right!?

Nintendo really loves the EarthBound series and its fandom, right???
