Yakuza: Of The End Is A Zombie Shooter

Sega have fully revealed the next entry in the gangster Yakuza series – and it’ll see the series’ previous protagonists moving down zombies in the city of Kamurocho.

The reveal trailer, which we’ve lovingly embedded below, shows the outbreak taking hold, a very wobbly tank, mutant creatures, and a man with a machine gun for a hand. Yep, it looks like Yakuza has totally jumped the shark.

Yakuza: Of The End will be released in Japan next year, so we’ll likely see it the following year. Sega has yet to confirm if the game will be a proper sequel (so effectively Yakuza 5), or a spin-off, but the team behind the game have said it’s unlikely to be the last entry in the series, so I’d like to see what they do with it next if the whole zombie thing turns out to be canon.

  1. tangent much?

  2. Yakuza zombies ?
    If anyone’s seen ‘Versus’ , the Japanese, Yakuza Zombie flick, then I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a good mix…… Weird but good !

  3. Japanese developers never cease to surprise but this looks particularly nuts.

  4. I really thought this was a joke when I first heard about it.

    Still not totally convinced it isn’t…

  5. More zombie games?
    They’ve gotten old really fast.

    • Yep. There’s still Dead Nation, but Housemarque made a game where you shoot rocks fun, so they can probably be trusted to do a good job with zombies. After that I’ll be happy to take a break from zombies in games for a good long while.
