Sony will release two new Yakuza-themed custom PlayStation 4 consoles in Japan alongside the new Yakuza game, the company has announced.

There's the Kazuma Kiryu Edition and the Mashima Goro Edition, both of which feature dragon artwork inspired by Yakuza tattoo design. Sony's selling them as special consoles, but the fancy design bits are laser-engraved HDD covers. They each come in either the console's Jet Black or Glacier White version and will cost ¥41,980 (which is about $350) when they're released on March 12, 2015.

The special edition console will give buyers a small discount on the upcoming Yakuza Zero, a prequel to the open world crime-themed series that takes place in 1988, seven years before the events of the first Yakuza game.

During its PlayStation Experience event earlier this month, Sony and Sega announced that Yakuza 5 will finally get a Western release, coming to PlayStation 3 via PSN in 2015. Sega and Sony also recently made Yakuza 4 and Yakuza: Dead Souls available to download.

So far, Sony and Sega didn't announce plans to release Yakuza Zero and the special edition PS4s outside of Japan. The companies also haven't said whether Yakuza: Ishin, the first PS4 game in the series, will get a Western release.
