Get drunk on some Yakuza of the End liquor

Yakuza 3, 4 and the PSP spinoff all had a liquor tie-in. Now it’s time for Yakuza of the End.

SEGA is once again teaming up with Sifuku Shuzo to bring you a special Yaukza-branded liquor bottle. This contains Seifuku Shikwasa flavor. Never heard of it, but it looks delicious.
