We’ve been hit up with a new trailer and press release details in time for the release of Yakuza: Dead Souls this week. I swear no part of the game will be better than that karaoke rendition.
IF YOU PLANNED TO VISIT TOKYO, WE HAVE BAD NEWS FOR YOU: A ZOMBIE INVASION STARTS THIS WEEK
LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO – (March 12th 2012) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. are proud to announce that Yakuza: Dead Souls™ will be hitting stores this week. The latest instalment of the legendary Yakuza™ series will be available March 13th in North America, March 15th in Australia and March 16th across Europe, exclusively on PlayStation®3.
Taking place in the well-known Kamurocho district, Dead Souls sees the return of the charismatic Yakuza hero Kazuma Kiryu, accompanied on his adventures by three other playable characters: Shun Akiyama, Ryuji Goda and Goro Majima. In Dead Souls, not only will Kazuma have to go deep into the underworld to rescue his kidnapped step-daughter, but now he will also have to face an army of zombies laying waste to his beloved Tokyo streets!
In addition to melee combat featuring punches, kicks and the possibility to use objects during fights, 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 your enemies. Just remember to save some ammo, in case you run into something far more terrifying than zombies! With all the depth, story and the plethora of minigames of a Yakuza title, plus the addition of exciting shoot-outs and previously unplayable characters Ryuji Goda and Goro Majima, Yakuza: Dead Souls is definitely worth dying for.
