Yakuza of the End gets June 9th release date

Yakuza of the End was supposed to be released in March, but a huge earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan. You probably heard of it. What is SEGA to do? Release a game where zombies attack Japan and leave everything destroyed while actual tragedy has hit Japan?

SEGA did the right thing and delayed the game. Some people thought the game was going to join 2001’s Propeller Arena (a AM2 DC game not released because of 9/11) and never come out. Well it is, June 9th. Few changes, some of the profits from the game will go to help Japan and the first print has a sticker that says “Ryu ga Gotoku Ganbaro, Nippon!”

Ganbaro means to stay strong and Nippon translates to land of the rising sun, a nickname for Japan.

    Glad it's only turned out to be a short delay. Delaying it for longer or cancelling it altogether would have been silly.

    I love the idea of the 'Stay Strong Japan' edition… I'm considering trying to get hold of one of those first batches.

    I hope they polished the game more.

    The game is finished, all they are doing is adding a sticker to the cover.

    Anyways, I am surprised the game is coming so soon. I was honestly expecting a Winter release. Hope the rest of us can get it next year!
