The Yakuza series has always been known for its brawling gameplay along with the inclusion of Japanese nightlife, including things as boring as working part-time jobs or as exotic as hostess clubs. Sequel to Yakuza 4, Ryu ga Gotoku of the End has Kamurocho infested by zombies, giving a slight change to the usual gang filled streets. When it was first shown to the public, this game definitely turned heads at the change of setting. Now that it’s out, we take a look at it and see how well the series has taken to the undead.
In a world probably at the brink of destruction, the majority of the population has been transformed to evil zombies due to a virus, radiation, or something of the sort. You are a one-man wolf pack armed with your wits and a pistol. Your objective is to survive or repopulate the world – well, more like see how long you can live. If these vague and cliché instructions are enough for you, then you’re ready to step into the fray, and ready to take on Boxhead: The Zombie Wars.
