Yakuza: Of The End to hit Japan in the summer

Portion of the proceeds to go to the Japanese Red Cross

SEGA has announced the Japanese release date for their zombified Yakuza spin-off.

Yakuza: Of The End will hit PlayStation 3s in Japan on June the 9th.

The game, which takes place in a Tokyo stuck by a zombie apocalypse, was due out on March the 17th just ten days after the West coast of Japan was stuck by the tsunami.

SEGA decided to hold off on releasing Kazuma and co's zombie encounter after the disaster struck and now have pledged to donate a portion of the game's profits to the Japanese Red Cross relief efforts.

Thanks Joystiq.
