I don’t think I’m telling you anything you don’t know if I say that zombies are everywhere nowadays. Zombies in World War II. Zombies in the Pentagon. Zombies in Anarctica. Zombies on the Moon. And that’s just the Call of Duty series. So it’s understandable if you’re sick of the undead. But what about zombies versus Japanese gangsters?
Umm… yes please!
Sega has filed a trademark application for Yakuza: Dead Souls with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (the European Union’s version of the US Patent and Trademark Office). While the application doesn’t give any specifics about the game, I think it’s safe to assume its the Western localization of Yakuza: Of the End, the aforementioned game featuring Japanese gangsters battling it out a zombie horde.
Like I said, while zombies might be a tad overexposed lately, the idea behind Yakuza: Dead Souls gets a big thumbs up from me.
