Japan gets Yakuza 1&2 HD on Wii U in August

Of course many will know that Sega's Playstation exclusive series Yakuza ( Ryu ga gotoku in Japan ) is one of Sega's most successful series since it stopped producing it's own hardware . The series has always been a Playstation only game and is on it's fifth game ,which has been recently released in Japan on PS3.

Now the first two in the series which where on PS2 and later ported onto PS3 in HD as digital downloads are coming to Nintendo's Wii U console in August in a special 1&2 boxed set ,but only in Japan.

Fans of the series in the West are crying out for a Western release. Here's hoping that it sells well on Wii U in Japan ,so that the West can get a conversion to. And hopefully the others in the series will follow.

Sega have said they are testing the waters so to speak to see how successful it can be , we hope it brings Sega the fruits it expects . The boxed price converts to approx £35 for both games ,so would you pay that for a boxed version or would you like to see a eshop download at a reduced price.

Anyway here's the boxart from the game
