The game is set to bring back primary hero Kazuma Kiryu and Shun Akiyama and fans of the series can enjoy controlling Goro Majima and Ryuji Goda for the first time as zombies and mutants invade Tokyo and involves focus on guns for the first time in the series. Check after the break for the press release and for the boxart for Yakuza: Dead Souls.
“We know how much people love Yakuza in the West, and with Dead Souls being the latest and greatest in the franchise, it’s only right we bring it to them closer to the Japanese release than ever.”– said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA.
