New PV released for Yakuza 0: The Promised Place recently.
I made a comment on the vid, but I’ll just put it here too.
Kiryu opening dialogue (rough?) translation:
“When you’ve been walking down a dark path for a long time…you feel it’ll forever be dark ahead of you as well…
You grow to despise moving forward.
There isn’t a single person who knows what lies ahead on their own path.
What I can do is either just stop here and weep…or move forward, even if it’s only by a single step. Those are my only two options.”
The pop-up texts are roughly so:
1988, Eve of the Heisei Era
The Era where Justice
was Staying True to your Desires
For the People of the Underground Society looking to Get Rich Quick
There are No Rules
For the Men Living Against this Era
Their Make-believe “Joyous” Era
Will Bare its Fangs of Madness
The Deeds of the Denizens of the Black World
Will Produce an Intense, Sad Fate
An Intertwining Fate…
Everything will be Guided
To the Promised Place
If You’re a Man
Don’t Ever Stop
To Live is to Never Run Away
In Good Time
From that Deep Darkness
The Legend of the “Dragon” Will Be Born
From what can be gathered from the thing, there is a traitor in the Toujou clan (when isn’t there) that Kiryu is part of. He himself seems to be betrayed by his own friend who says he “has no choice”. Dudes are also searching for Kiryu (when aren’t they). Majima was supposed to kill a dame (the short-haired one) but ended up not going through with it, instead helping to hide her and gets in trouble for it, thus his fight. As usual, they will all intertwine together for some huge plot probably. I recognize some actors lending their likeness to it, which is neato I guess. I’m hype.
