AU Shippin' Out March 12-16: Yakuza: Dead Souls

Yakuza: Dead Souls leaves the shores of Japan in search of Western brains this week.

This week, the zombie legions of Japan come for Australian brains with the release of Yakuza: Dead Souls. Series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu returns to take on the undead and is joined by a cast of old and new faces. While melee combat has traditionally been the focus of the franchise, guns play a much larger role in the game this time around; after all, you want to keep your distance from the undead.

The other big game out this week is FIFA Street, a reboot of the spin-off football series from EA Sports. Based on the FIFA Soccer 12 engine, this long-awaited sequel has less of an arcade tone than its predecessors and is more focused on faster ball action. Just because FIFA Street isn't a hardcore simulator doesn't mean it doesn't include licensed players. Look for its official teams from around the globe.

Other games on sale this week include Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle for the PlayStation 3 and Ben 10: Galactic Racing on the Nintendo 3DS.

To see what else is out this week, check the list below:

Mach 15, 2012
Yakuza: Dead Souls (PS3)
FIFA Street (PS3, 360)
Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle (PS3)
Ben 10: Galactic Racing (3DS)

Oh yes Yakuza Dead Souls. I urge everyone to buy this game and more importantly this week. We lost Valkyria Chronicles 3 because how poorly no.2 sold, so let's not let the same thing happen with Yakuza.


Weak week but Yakuza: Dead Souls please! :D
