Yakuza: Of The End mega-trailer is crazy like zombie sushi. Also, Japanese girls in bikinis

Yakuza: Of The End is a spin-off title in the established Japanese mobster series. It's designed to attract new gamers. Gamers that wouldn't normally give Yakuza a look. In order to achieve that, Yakuza: Of The End has 100% more over-the-top shooting of zombies than a normal Yakuza game.

It's an interesting tactic, but is adding zombies really all it takes to win the attention of gamers? After seeing the new 8-minute mega-trailer below, I'd have to say 'YES'. Yes it is.

I'm more hyped for Of The End than I ever have been for any previous Yakuza game. Call me crazy, but the idea of gratuitous zombie killing combined with grenade baseball, table tennis and Japanese bikini girls appeals to me immensely. Also, this:

Goro Majima is fabulous.

    This looks really cool. I've played Yakuza but never beaten all of them. This looks so over the top and fun!

    Mad Dog Majima song and dance number? SOLD!

    Do I really need a description of every element of the game? This reminds me of movie trailers from the 70's. But, dating and dancing with Majima! What could be better?

    I'm liking what I'm seeing, but how is this Yakuza? Is this an alternate-universe Yakuza or something? If they do bring it here, I hope they don't westernize it.

    This looks like a version of Dead Rising but the location is Japan. I'm not so sure about this...

    This game shamelessly rips off every undead shooter I can think of in some way. Then it screams THIS IS WHAT THOSE GAMES -DON'T- HAVE! Screw Left4Dead, I'm hittin up the idol batting cages after I've survived another day!

    Hopefully it'll come west to get more people into these amazing games. I've been a fan since the first game and thought Y3 was incredible so if a spun off spin off is what's needed so be it! Looks like a great big dollop of mental Japanese style fun, too, which won't hurt and seeing the usual spread of extra minigames to play I'm having to say I'm more than completely up for this game already!

    Bonkers. Yet amazing. If I can still stomp on faces, I'm in. Gun customization looks good too.

    This trailer was made specifically for the sole purpose of being used in Trailer Trash Theater. WHERE IS IT??!
