The zombie craze continues, spreading it’s way through the gaming world like, well, a zombie virus. The latest ip to get it’s own undead spin off is Yakuza, with Yakuza Dead Souls. The game has of course already seen a release in Japan under the Yakuza: of the End title, but is making it’s way to Western audiences for a March 2012 release.
The premise is a simple one, Kamurocho is infested with zombies – kill them! Players will be able to take on the role of four playable characters, including two fan favourites that have never before been playable – Goro Majima and Ryuji Goda. Goda has possibly the best prosthetic limb in the history of the universe, in that it turns into a rather awesome Gatling gun.
Rounding out the quartet are Shun Akiyama and Kazuma Kiryu, and to round out their leading zombe killers, SEGA have just released a brand new character trailer -do they enjoykaroke or enjoy going to hostess clubs? Well now you can find out (and also watch them kill some zombies, that may be the more relevant thing here).Yakuza Dead Souls is a PS3 exclusive, and will be released in North America and Europe in March of next year.
