While we still haven’t so much as a word about a Western release, Yakuza 1 and 2 HD Edition is coming out tomorrow in Japan, and to celebrate my petulant jealousy, I’m going to bask in the glory of this new batch of HD-ified, widescreen-ified comparison shots. Join me in my pouting, won’t you?
The difference is certainly noticeable in these screen caps, especially in regards to anti-aliasing. Of special note is the shot of a cutscene you see above. Back when the game was first announced, some pointed out what seemed to be some low-res shots in cutscene portions of the announcement trailer, but this crisp comparison looks to put those concerns to bed.
Hit the jump to be jealous of Japan some more.
