Yakuza is Sega's crime saga. The upcoming entry will have zombies in it. Yeah.
The first image Sega showed of upcoming Yakuza game, Yakuza: Of The End, depicted the in-game Kamurocho, the in-game version of Shinjuku's Kabukicho, in ruins.
The game's designer said that the theme for To The End was "destruction". A more apt theme is "bwah?"
The initial image of the destroyed urban landscape seemed to look more like a natural disaster. The destruction, however, appears to have been caused by zombies. The latest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu confirms the inclusion of zombies in Yakuza: To The End.
The scans show the Japanese Self Defence Force attempting to handle a horde of zombies. There appears to be either a tank or some sort of armoured vehicle enveloped by zombies. Other scans show the city landscape in shambles. The outside of a sushi restaurant is destroyed.
Expect more details as they are made known.
Of The End? This is the end of the Yakuza series as we know it. Though, if this game does feature zombie hostesses, perhaps we would be willing to overlook this totally off-the-wall direction the series is taking.
