Yakuza: Of the End Coming Stateside

The title will be called Dead Souls for its US and Europe release.

Although already alluded to due to Europe trademark, Sega officially announced today that Yakuza: Of the End will come to the west as Yakuza: Dead Souls. It is suggested the the DLC that has been released for the title will come bundled with the original game for its western release.

Previously, Daisuke Sato was quoted in saying "For the western version of Yakuza: Of the End -- if that's going to happen, then we will tweak the controls, to be closer to other western shooting franchises." It appears that different controls will be implemented. 

The game is set during a zombie outbreak in Kamurocho. Originally released in Japan on June 9, 2011, the North American and Europe release date is March 2012, exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

EarthBound Review Rewind

Remember that silly old trope in teen movies where the nerdy “plain Jane” character magically becomes super attractive just by removing her glasses? It was a bit like that with EarthBound- an RPG that was largely ignored when released on the Super NES in its twilight years. Nintendo’s ill-conceived ad campaign telling the player that “this game stinks” didn’t do it any favors either. The game’s overtly humorous kid-friendly facade was unusual for its time and quickly written off as ugly and boring by all but the most accepting of RPG fans. But thanks to the positive praise in gaming forums years later, it picked up steam and eventually became lauded as one of the best on the Super NES. Much like the bespectacled character in every 90s teen comedy, it was as if EarthBound removed its glasses. Nothing was different about it- just our perception of what was already there.
