Some great news for fans of the Yakuza series today. Sega has announced they will be bringing the zombie infused, Yakuza: Of The End to North America and Europe this April. The game will be dropping the “Of The End” title, and will instead be called “Yakuza: Dead Souls.
Due to poor sales of the series anywhere other than Japan (where it easily sells millions), there has been much speculation regarding this title making it out of the country. Well that speculation can be put to rest, as Sega has confirmed the title will be receiving a western release, and we couldn’t be happier.
Yakuza: Dead Souls takes the series in a different direction than most Yakuza titles, pitting Kazuma Kiryu and company against the undead. We played the demo which was released on the Japanese PS Store back in February and had a blast with it. Below is a gameplay video and some screenshots from the demo, have a look and let us know if you’ll be picking up Dead Souls when it hits in April.
