While we're waiting for Yakuza 4, Japan is getting ready for the next game in the series, Yakuza: of the End. The Yakuza-versus-Zombie action game just kicked off its TV campaign with these ads.

The announcer says, “Zombies! Karaoke! Zombies! Hot springs! Zombies, zombies, zombies! But of course, hostess clubs!” Protagonist Kazuma Kiryu then chimes in asking, “What did he say?” before the announcer finishes up with one more pitch, and the name of the game.

The second commercial is more focused on the game’s story with a bit less flair. The announcer simply babbles on about the beginning of the final fight. It’s mostly typical video game commercial stuff and lacking in the karaoke-and-zombies department.
Yakuza: of the End will be released in Japan on March 17, while Yakuza 4 will get March 15 and March 18 release dates in America and Europe respectively.
