The Yakuza 1 & 2 HD collection has been announced for the Wii U. Want the bad news? It’s currently only being released in Japan.
The news came during the Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation. Today, we have a brand new trailer and a whole slew of screenshots (find the latter in the gallery at the base of this post).
Being on the Wii U, gamers will be able to play Yakuza 1 & 2 HD on the GamePad without their televisions. During normal play, the GamePad will provide a mini-map and a HUD for in-game information.
This HD package marks the first time a Yakuza title has ever released on a console that doesn’t brandish the “PlayStation” name.
Yakuza 1 & 2 HD will release in Japan on August 8th, 2013. It currently carries a budget price. If this game collection makes it abroad, we’ll be all over the news.
