This Yakuza: Dead Souls Trailer is a Feeding Frenzy

SEGA's new trailer for the zombie-ridden Yakuza: Dead Souls skips the foreplay of human connection and solidarity. The shambling hordes come first, picking their way through Tokyo's red light district with a hunger for human flesh… and bone marrow, and organs, and brains.


Fans of splatter-house gore will enjoy gameplay footage of what seems like a very mobile third-person shooter. Only after the wanton violence on zombies big and small does the soundtrack kick back in, revealing a distinct but just as considerable threat for the player.

Yakuza: Dead Souls hits shelves sometime in March 2012.

(I initially erroneously stated that developer Toshihiro Nagoshi wasn't on this project, but it turns out he is. Apologies.)

So is it possible to play Yakuza 3 & 4 without having played the previous 2? I hear such good things about them, but I don't own a PS2 so have no access to the games on it.
