    Video: Sega Confirms Yakuza: Dead Souls PS3 Heading to the US

    Sponsored Links
    Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has confirmed today alongside a video trailer that Yakuza: Dead Souls on PS3 is heading to the US.

    To quote: Greetings Sony fans and Yakuza enthusiasts! Today is an exciting day, both for PS3 gamers and for us here at SEGA - the PS3 exclusive, Yakuza: Dead Souls is coming to the west!

    It seems like only yesterday we were all sitting on the edge of our Sony-branded seats, hoping desperately that Yakuza 3 would see the light of day overseas. In the years since, we've seen not only the US release of Yakuza 3, but Yakuza 4, too - and, thanks to the fantastic support of fans and PS3 gamers like you, we're proud to now announce the latest chapter in the Yakuza franchise. What was once Of The End is now Dead Souls!

    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!

    Yet even for all the wacky and hilarious Japanese culture laden within the game - and in past Yakuza games, too - there is a strong layer of serious, emotional storytelling taking place here. This game has also convinced me that, without a doubt, Kazuma Kiryu is more manly than both Chuck Norris and Duke Nukem fused together - but that's for another blog.

    If you're a fan of the series, we'd like to end by saying THANK YOU for going out there and picking up the western releases of Yakuza 3 and 4. Even now, every copy of Yakuza 4 sold, and every pre-order of Yakuza: Dead Souls helps this franchise continue to survive and grow here in the west.

    Seems like a decent game. Zombies are like the new trend in video games now, the same way space shooters were the trend 30 years ago.

    The Kenzan spin-off would much preferred. We have many zombieshooters as it is. The theme of the old Japan and samurai have much less goodies in it
