Sega Bringing Yakuza + Zombies Outside of Japan

Plus, we're getting all of Japan's downloadable content on the disc.

When there are no more Yakuza to be killed, the Yakuza will rise from the dead.

On my bucket list of game franchises I'm hoping to play at least one installment of, Yakuza is pretty high on the list. I've heard such wacky, awesome things about Yakuza 4, but the constant stream of new games means the game keeps getting pushed further and further back.

Eventually, I tell myself.

Time to put another one on the list, as Sega of America's confirmed Yakuza of the End is leaving Japan as Yakuza: Dead Souls, and will arrive over here next March, complete with the Japanese edition's slate of downloadable content and a new mini-game, Pachislot.

Yakuza: Dead Souls and mixes up the otherwise more seriously toned Yakuza series and drops in zombies, mutants and all sorts of other supernatural creatures.

Also, I can't be the only one who sees Dead Souls and keeps thinking Dark Souls.
