  • Milestone Celebration: The digital version for North America and Europe was released on December 8, 2015, marking the ten year anniversary of the first game's release in Japan.
  • Network to the Rescue: Sega initially had no plans to localize any further entries of the series after the commercial failure of Yakuza: Dead Souls, and even took down the English Yakuza websites in 2013. When Sony's third party relations asked gamers what games they wanted localized, Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 was among the most requested, and it was announced in 2014 that they would localize Yakuza 5 for a digital release the following year. Noticing the demand, Sega announced Yakuza 0 would also be released in English-speaking regions right before the fifth game's release, and they would handle the localization themselves.
  • According to Hideki Naganuma, "VENDOR POP", which plays during the "Shinada's Interview" substory fight, was actually an unused song originally produced for Super Monkey Ball 3D.
