Yakuza: Of the End is a game about zombies

Famitsu’s done a full thirteen-page reveal on Yakuza: Of the End (shared with the PSP’s Black Panther game) in their latest issue which leaked onto the net tonight. Believe it or not, it’s a friggin’ zombie game. With the Japanese mafia.

Interesting take on the series, I must say.

Kamurocho’s in ruins and its streets are crawling with zombies — even zombie once-sexy hostesses. In the screenshots, we see Kamurocho’s defense squad trying to fight off the zombies, but they prove to be no match.

Now the game’s title makes me think it’s a hit at Dawn of the Dead. Maybe it is? Only Sega knows.

Check out the scans below.

Thanks, Andriasang.
