Yakuza: Dead Souls, otherwise known by its Japanese title Yakuza: Of the End, will be released in North America and Europe in March 2012, SEGA has confirmed.
The western release of the gangster-zombie actioner will throw in a new Pachislot mini-game, as well as two previously unplayable characters in the shape of Ryuji Goda and Goro Majima.
For those who haven’t been following our coverage of the Japanese release, Dead Souls introduces firearms for the first time in the series, as the game’s cast takes to the streets of Tokyo to battle hordes of shambling, flesh-eating undead.
Gary Knight, SEGA’s SVP of Marketing, commented: “We know how much people love Yakuza in the West and with Dead Souls being the latest and greatest in the franchise its only right we bring it to them closer to the Japanese release than ever.”----
