The Yakuza: Dead Souls ending theme song sure is dreamy

Sega's Yakuza: Dead Souls hit store shelves just two days ago, so while it's unlikely that most people out there have completed the game, I suppose it's possible. If you want a preview (not really a spoiler) of what to expect from the game's ending sequence, we've managed to get our hands on the ending theme music which comes as a dreamy electronic remix of one of the game's main themes exclusive to regions outside of Japan. It's titled "Start OF THE END (83key ReMix)" by Mitsuharu Fukuyama.

I'm really digging the choral elements and the brass section towards the end. Feel free to hit up our review of the game while you listen after the jump, and let us know if you think the theme really fits in with the Yakuza image.
