Trademark suggests Yakuza: Of the End’s headed West

Yakuza: Of the End is a game about Japanese mafia zombies. Crazy? Brilliant? Both? We have no idea. But – seeing as that description probably secretes some sort of pheromone-based Western exec repellent – we weren’t exactly hopeful that we’d ever get to find out. Show’s what we know, though, because the apparent result of a genre-based Mad Libs match looks to be expanding its criminal empire to this side of the pond. According to a European trademark dug up by Joystiq, something called Yakuza: Dead Souls is on the way. Odds are, it’s either a shiny new name for Of the End or a Dark Souls crossover. Which – come to think of it – sounds incredible.
