Yakuza: Dead Souls Hitting Western Shores 2012

SEGA has revealed that the latest entry into its cult Yakuza games series, Yakuza Of The End, will be hitting western shores in 2012 under the moniker Yakuza: Dead Souls.

Breaking from its predecessors, the new title will take on a darker tone pitting players against hordes of zombies and mutants which have inexplicably laid siege to Tokyo's red light district.

The game will reportedly let players pick from four characters. As well as the addition of zombies SEGA has also made several other tweaks to the game's formula, chief among which is the addition of
guns. In its latest statement SEGA confirmed players will be able to fight the zombie hordes with "everything from pistols, machine guns
and rocket launchers."

Unfortunately, past the nebulous 2012 estimate, SEGA gave no further insights into the game's exact release date.
