Yakuza: Of the End Has Dance Battles, Too

Pistols? Check. Shotguns and rifles? Check. Chainguns and armoured cavalry? Check. Playing baseball with hand grenades? CHECK. All Yakuza: Of the End is is missing is dancing and giant monsters.

 

Oh, wait.

And lest we forget, there is always room for the bizarre in Yakuza:

    If I went back in time and described to my kid self the contents of this game, my puny little noggin would have exploded. I never even imagined games could reach this level of madness. Where could they possibly go from here; how could they top themselves and what would it look like? Not that I am worried, of course. Expect more from Japan. Always.EDIT: Unfortunately we’re not going to be getting this for a while. We’ll have Yakuza 4 soon at least.

      Yup!!!! Can’t wait!

      Could anyone who has played Kenzan comment on that game? Compared to Yakuza 3, for instance. Does it have full 3D camera control and all of the other nice improvements, or is it based off Y2? I suppose I should just man up and download the demo someday.

        Or Sega could man up and bring it over here someday.

        I have played both Yakuza 3 and Kenzan and I think Yakuza 3 is a better game. Kenzan battle system and everything feels quite stiff now, and there’s no diversity of the later Yakuza games. Still, the old Japan atmosphere and the story are quite good and I had a blast playing it.

        The fact that the game is not localized though does not really help. Of course, there’s ThePatrick guide but it’s not as deep as it could have been and most of the characters interactions are still not translated. This was the biggest concern for me.

      I’ve already got it preordered. March 15th can’t come soon enough.

      This is why Japanese games rule. The West could never think of stuff this crazy.

        It’s stuff like this that makes me wanna just slap Inafune and “Japanese gaming is lost” bull.

    The more Majima dancing, the better.

    I hope no mini-games get cut if there is an english release.

    This looks like the best zombie game of all time!

    Legit! I still need to get 2, 3 and 4 D:!

    With cameo appearances from Ulala and MJ doing the Thriller?

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    Gotta admit, Goro dancing I can live with, but his singing… I doubt that part of the game will consume more than the least of my time. But I’m happy to see that the mini-games are still accounted for. Wait… dating… during a zombpocalypse?

    Everyone needs to buy Yakuza 4, so that this will come out. I don’t care if you don’t have a PS3. I don’t care if you don’t even play videogames. If this isn’t localized, I will blame you.

    I’m not much into shooters or zombie games but… I NEED this game.

    Ugh, the zombies look like they were designed by Junji Ito

  • thebanditking

    This looks amazingly ridiculous! There is probably a 10% chance it will release outside of Japan but if your reading Sega, I want it!
