Taking place in Tokyo's Red Light district, the game features the characters from Sega's popular Yakuza 4 thrown into a zombie apocalypse scenario. To help combat the undead, firearms will be included for the first time in a Yakuza game.
The Western release of Yakuza: Dead Souls will include all of the content from the Japanese version, including all downloadable content and a new Pachislot mini-game. In the past, Sega cut content from the western release of Yakuza 3, disappointing fans.
Yakuza: Dead Souls was originally announced for Japan last year under the title Yakuza: Of The End. It is not to be confused with Yakuza 5, which recently entered development.
Yakuza: Dead Souls will release exclusively on PlayStation 3 in March 2012.
