Yakuza: Dead Souls announced for the US
Exciting news today from the US Playstation Blog as Aaron Webber, Associate Brand Manager of Sega of America announced Yakuza: Dead Souls. Yakuza: Dead Souls (aka Yakuza: Of The End in Japan) is the latest chapter in the Yakuza franchise will finally come to the US, who knew this day would come?
Aaron Webber goes on to say:
So, what is Yakuza: Dead Souls all about? I traveled to the top of the mountains and spent two weeks meditating to bring you the answers. In the end, that failed, so I just played the entire game instead. It was awesome, and in doing so, I found that this game is a mix of:
- Zombies in Tokyo
- Yakuza with guns
- Beautiful Hostesses
And while I’m not able to reveal how much content from the Japanese version is coming over, let me just say that you fans are going to be very, very happy when you hear how much we’ve included
The version we’re bringing to the west features the entire storyline, as well as its brand new mini-game: Pachislot. Yakuza: Dead Souls returns you back to the streets of Kamurocho, which is now under attack by hordes of Zombies. Though you won’t be restricted by Zombies as your only threat, as you’ll also face powerful mutants, and, perhaps most dangerous of all, members of the Japanese underworld.
The name Dead Souls has multiple meanings within the game, beyond the obvious “Oh-hey-that’s-totally-a-Zombie”angle. But did I mention the Zombies yet? Well, there are Zombies. Lots of Zombies. So many Zombies I’m going to start using a capital Z when I type Zombies, just to spite all those English professors back in college who said I couldn’t. Zombies, Zombies, Zombies!
