Each region had their own Nintendo Direct today and while a lot of it had the same content with regional information, a surprise awaited us from the Japanese Nintendo Direct. PlayStation exclusive game Yakuza is now headed to the Wii U. The open world crime game will feature as a bundle, with the first and second titles in the series coming as a special HD collector’s edition.
During the video a trailer was shown that showed off HD-refined graphics, as well as exclusive gameplay features to the Wii U version. The bundle will be released in Japan on August 8th, but there’s no word on whether this title will make the transition to North America and Europe. Considering the original PlayStation 2 titles were available in North America and Europe, here’s to hoping we’ll see these soon as well.
