Elevator Music Time With ONE OK ROCK And Yakuza Restoration

By Eugene . December 21, 2013 . 12:30pm


So, there’s not really a lot in there, but the latest promotional trailer gives us a glimpse of some of the storyline we’ll be following in the upcoming slashy-slashy-slashy-blam-blam-blam game Yakuza Restoration.


It’s kind of light on in-game footage, though you can read more about the game’s different fighting styles as well as heat action system here. Nonetheless, the CGI looks as awesome and realistic as ever. You’ll also get to see Ryouma Sakamoto as he talks things through with others in the Shinsengumi.


The background music you hear is also provided for by J-Rock band ONE OK ROCK, who also happen to have done the theme song for Black Rock Shooter. In Yakuza Restoration, they’re singing the song “Clock Strikes” from their latest album. Feels perfect for the atmosphere!



Yakuza Restoration will be out February 22nd 2014 for PlayStation 3 and 4.

    Funny, I was just reminded of ONE OK ROCK today from something else and was browsing their discography.

    • 하세요

            Conviction was the first ONE OK ROCK song I ever listened to and ever liked since.

      Yakuza games are always good as face sculpting. They all look so unique.

  • DanielGearSolid

    So there’s no fist fights?
    I love punching ppl in the face in Yakuza

    • TrueDefault

      There’s unarmed combat as well as sword and gun, don’t worry.

      • DanielGearSolid

        Thx, im sold lol

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Funny enough, Clock Strikes was the song that pretty much introduced me to this band awhile back. Not really a big Jrock fan but i love these guys and Galneryus!

  • DragKudo

    Oh man I shed a little tear watching this. One Ok Rock is awesome. Hope this comes out to .U.S. I’m looking at Sega and Atlus make it happen.

  • deadMastershiro

    ONE OK ROCK and Yakuza are a match made in heaven.

  • Pombar

    Perhaps more relevant to Ishin’s setting is that ONE OK ROCK also did the theme tune to the live action Rurouni Kenshin movie!

  • Thatguy

    edit: nvm, it’s a bug, aaaand… it’s fixed.

  • NimbusStev

    This certainly piqued my interest! The facial animation for this game looks amazing.

  • Asclepius

    everyone is angry in feudal japan :

  • colorblindnightmare

    Ugh, that trailer was so good! You would think that after aquiring another publishing power house they could get more games over here with ease. I need this game in myblife but I know It’s unlikely.

  • I think… I just became a ONE OK ROCK fan. This was just an awesome trailer from beginning to end. If they came west, I’d have to (potentially) double dip for this.
