You read right, there’s a Yakuza 1 & 2 HD release on its way to the PlayStation 3. A listing for it went up over at Sega’s site and was taken down soon after, but as we all know, the internet never forgets. The game is scheduled for a December 1st release in Japan and costs the equivalent of 65$, which makes me think it’s a combo pack.
I’ve only recently started playing the very first Yakuza, but Yakuza 2 is a brilliant game that I loved playing for every single second! It seems that Sega has finally realised that those HD re-releases are another cash-cow they can milk. And if they need anything, it’s cash.
