Yakuza 0 fans intervened in a lawsuit between former Governor Spitzer and the shareholders of the co-op. The reason is simple – the whole process is absurdly similar to the core of the game’s plot.
A bit of context. The New York Times ran an article explaining that former Gov. Eliot Spitzer is trying to tear down a building he owns on Fifth Avenue to build a high-end condominium tower in its place. But the only thing stopping him is a lawsuit in which the shareholders of an Upper East Side co-op claim they own a small alley next to the Spitzer building because Spitzer has not used the site for 10 years.
For everyone who played Yakuza 0, this story will be familiar, and for those who have not touched this title, I explain – the whole plot of Yakuza 0 revolves around a small piece of land in Kamurocho called “Wasteland”. The game features two conflicting parties over the plot, the Dojima Family, and real estate agent Tetsu Tachibana, both of which have good reasons for getting the plot, but things only get more complicated and confusing when the protagonist Kazuma Kiryu gets dragged into the story.
Fans of the game very quickly got into the topic, and began to post various pictures and gifs with characters from the game, and one of them suggested that Spitzer name the condominium – Millenium Tower, in honor of such an amazing coincidence.
