SEGA is bringing the classic Yakuza games to the Wii U later this year. Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition, as it’s known, features the classic Yakuza games first released on the PS2 many years ago. The games were given an HD remake for the PS3 in 2008, and the Wii U version is based on those. Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition has so far only been confirmed for the Japanese market, but it’s likely that the HD bundle will find its way to the rest of the world, especially if it sells well in Japan.
Check out some Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition screenshots below, including the Japanese Wii U box art as well. SEGA has previously said that they see Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition on the Wii U as an “an experiment”. In other words, they’re interested in seeing if they can repackage old games and sell them on the Wii U for an easy buck. We’ll see how the “experiment” goes when the game is released later this year.
