Kamurocho Before And After The Zombie Invasion

By Spencer . October 12, 2010 . 8:09pm

This is what Kamurocho, the based-on-real life, but fictional district of Japan that Sega’s Yakuza games take place in, before zombies get to it.

Here’s what the area looks like after the lockdown in Yakzua: of the End.

The Special Defense Force can’t handle the zombie invasion, which means its up to an unlikely bunch of heroes to save Kamurocho. Yakuza: of the End is designed like a third person shooter with gunshot battles. Players will be able to use four characters from the series and each one has his own weapon.

Kazuma has rifle.


018[1] 041[1]
Goro is armed with a shotgun.


020[1] 042[2]
Shun carries two pistols.


022[1] 043[2]
Ryjui has a gattling gun arm.


Complicating matters further, Haruka Sawamura (a key character in the Yakuza series) has left Okinawa and appears to be in trouble.

    this game look awesome a huge yakuza fan was kind of skeptical at first but when it comes to the U.S. in 2012 day 1 buy for me hurry yakuza 4

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    This is the video game equivalent of Full Metal Panic? Fumofu.

    There’s no way this game won’t sell in the US. There’s just no way. Also, was perversely hoping for some zombie hostesses to do karaoke with, but sadly it doesn’t look to be that way.

      Should they announce it for the US, hostess club(s) and all, I promise I’ll spend the downtime tracking down the series backcatalog.

        1 is not bad, but ruined by the corny English dub. 2 is excellent and has everything, better gameplay, plus an extensive recap of 1, so you may as well start there. I skipped 3 because of how much they cut out, but I’m looking to buy 4 if they keep everything in (besides AnsxAns).

    You would think even a zombie would not be so stupid as to cross any character VAed by Rie Kugimiya. All it’s gonna take is just one undead to say how much he loves her for Haruka to go into super tsundere mode; breaking out a flaming sword, casting void magic and cracking a bokken on some zombie skullz just for the hell of it.

    All while cursing the undead as a bunch of baka inus.

  • Cool, I hope to see cameo apperences from Sega’s other “undead games” such are the AMS Agents from The House Of The Dead and Zombie Revenge games. Like who? Well characters like Agent “G”, Thomas Rogan, Stick Breitling and Rikiya Busujima would be awesome! Alas, this is just a pipe dream…

    • pressstart

      Include the campy B movie voice acting for the corresponding cameos and my life would be complete :)

  • Guest

    Where are the rest of the characters from Yakuza 4 and wheres the guy from Black Panther PSP game

  • If you don’t think this looks awesome, someone’s gonna poop in your cornflakes.

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    Being able to play as Goro Majima… going Left4Dead-style in Japan… this is pretty much a wet dream coming true for me.

  • SeventhEvening

    Well, I was skeptical at first, but seeing that giant gun arm and some of the other aspects, I think that they aren’t taking themselves too seriously. It’ll be a real interesting side story I think.

    Also, Goro as a playable character? Against zombies? Aaaamazing!

  • It’s so cheesy it just HAS to be awesome.

  • thebanditking

    This looks awesome, not in the usual Yakuza way but still awesome.
