Of The End Update: Voice Actors, Guns, Added Info
We've been keeping a close eye on Yakuza: Of The End, which features a few significant changes to the standard franchise formula.
If you're interested in learning even more, head on over to Andriasang for a big behind-the-scenes update. They provide you with a horde of screenshots along with character information for most of the cast (including their corresponding voice actors). Kamurocho has been decimated by the living dead and with the Self Defense Wall set up around the city to protect the rest of Japan, it's up to Kazuma and Co. to deal with the flesh-eating swarms. Joining Kiryu in the battle will be Ryuji Goda, Goro Majima and Shun Akiyama, all of whom have been in previous installments and now will carry specific weaponry. We also learn more about how each character becomes involved in the mess, and a few extra screens showing the characters with their favorite firearms. Such updates make us hope Sega won't take so long in localizing what appears to be the last Yakuza; historically, it has taken over a year for new games in the series to arrive in the US.
Yakuza: Of The End is supposed to hit Japan in April 2011 and we still haven't even seen the most recently released title, so... We probably have a bit of a wait before us. Still, looks interesting.
