on October 5, 2011 3:30 PM

Sega West confirmed today that the zombie-themed spin-off of the Ryu Ga Gotoku series, Ryu Ga Gotoku: Of the End,  will be released in the west next march with the title Yakuza: Dead Souls.

The game will feature the full story present in the Japanese original, plus a new pachislot minigame and will be released exclusively on the PS3.

Yakuza: Dead Souls is a big departure from the original series, as it’s more of a survival horror than a story-driven action-brawler-rpg, but it’s still exciting to see it come to the west. Now, what about Valkyria Chronicles III, Sega?

You can enjoy the first trailer, the official box art, some pretty amazing screenshots and the new logo past the cut:

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
