I don't think I've run into too much in 0 so far that depends on things I don't know from Yakuza 1. But if you'd rather wait, the remake of Yakuza 1 is supposed to be coming out on Steam later this year.

A sequel without Mysterio, so automatically a lesser sequel, but in all non-Mysterio-related ways it's otherwise an excellently made game with a nicely executed Spider-Man story. Lots of horrible luck, awful choices, bad PR and personal suffering to go around. All leavened with the roller coaster of optimism that marks the best of Spider-Man media.
Also? No origin story of Peter. No Uncle Ben dying, waah waah, same thing that keeps getting rehashed. Naw, he's been at this for nearly a decade now. It's a Parker in his prime, and that's fun stuff.
I think this is also the first Spider-Man game I've played with extra costumes as unlockables where the Symbiote suit isn't one of them. I'm marginally disappointed, because it's almost like a tradition at this point, but there are way better outfits available, so it's not a big loss.
On the downside, while I love Insomniac and pretty much everything they produce, they really are great at cartoony, or at least stylized characters, and hell, all the costumed characters look awesome. Normal ass people, though ... ooof. Most of them are barely into the uncanny valley, from the wrong side. It can be kind of distracting at times.
... Finally, apparently Marvel games need mid-credit and post-credits scenes now, too. They're good enough, but really? Was that necessary?
