WHAT WAS ONCE OF THE END IS NOW DEAD SOULS
SEGA Delivers the Unique Experience of Tokyo’s Red Light District With an Undead Twist in Yakuza: Dead Souls Coming 2012!
SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. announced that the much anticipated ‘Yakuza Of The End’ will be available in the West in March 2012. Renamed Yakuza: Dead Souls, this next iteration of the iconic Japanese series will be available exclusively to PlayStation 3 system owners and will feature the entire storyline, Japanese downloadable content and a brand new mini-game Pachislot!
Yakuza: Dead Souls is set in the infamous red light district of Tokyo, which is under attack from hordes of zombies. Players will not only face armies of the undead and incredibly powerful mutants, but a treacherous Japanese underworld that is just as merciless. Playing through the eyes of four of the most infamous characters of the series, witness allegiances shift quickly and the line between friend and foe lost. If you thought zombies were bad…meet the Yakuza!
“We know how much people love Yakuza in the West and with Dead Souls being the latest and greatest in the franchise, it is only right we bring it to them closer to the Japanese release than ever,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA.
Yakuza: Dead Souls features gunplay for the first time in the Yakuza™ series, where everything from pistols, machine guns and rocket launchers can be employed against the zombie invasion. Just remember to save some ammo in case you run into something even more terrifying than the zombies! With all the depth and story of a Yakuza title, plus the addition of exciting shoot-outs and previously unplayable characters Ryuji Goda and Goro Majima, Yakuza: Dead Souls is worth dying for.
