Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition confirmed

It was rumoured last week that a Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition was on the way, and the latest issue of Famitsu confirms this to be true.

Alongside HD visuals, the HD remake will feature improved load times, item box management in phone booths, and food you have eaten will be checked off in menus – making particular sides a tad easier! An official site has gone up with wallpapers and a comparison of the HD and PS2 versions’ screenshots.

Coming to PlayStation 3, Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition is planned for release November 1 in Japan and is priced at 5,290 yen. No news on a western release yet, but it is still very early days. Oh, and there is a trailer – check it out below.

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition might be a thing

Sega Japan may have unintentionally revealed a HD re-release of Yakuza and Yakuza 2 for PlayStation 3.

Appearing on Sega’s release schedule for a short time, Ryū ga Gotoku 1& 2 HD Edition (Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition) was listed for a December 1 release at 5,229 yen. The now amended release schedule shows no sign of Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition, however Andriasang, who originally spotted the “announcement”, posted a link to the cached version of the original schedule which outed the title.

With Yakuza 5 set for release around the same time, December is shaping up to be a great month for series’ fans.
