News – SEGA announces Yakuza: Of the End

It’s unlikely that the newly announced Yakuza: Of the End for PS3 is Yakuza 5, given that the story centres around a zombie apocalypse in which the locked down Tokyo district of Kamurocho has been overrun by the undead.

It’s a third person shooter and the usual heat moves of previous games have been replaced with heat snipe move, which increases the accuracy of your firearms.

The game has four different playable characters, these include series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, Shun Akiyama, Ryuji Goda and Goro Majima, each with their own weapons.

Mini games will also be back in this odd spinoff game.

Not sure about a western release as of yet, but we are getting Yakuza 4 in the spring of 2011, which is something to look forward to.
