SEGA’s Yakuza franchise is consistently brilliant. The zany open-world series is well recognised for its mix of serious and silly, and Yakuza: Dead Souls – the Western name for Yakuza: Of the End – promises to take things to the next level. Having spent several hours with the import release we can confirm that Dead Souls easily achieves its aims – there’s zombie fishing for goodness sake!
You won’t have to wait long to play it either. As part of a massive release schedule update, SEGA’s confirmed that Yakuza: Dead Souls will shuffle onto European store shelves on 16th March. That should you give you enough time to practice your hostess pick-up lines in the mirror. Just watch out for the girls keen to take a bite out of your face – that ain’t affection at all.
