We posted the rumor, now it’s confirmed. SEGA is planning on releasing Yakuza 1&2 HD for the Playstation 3. The issue states that both HD remakes are set to release on November 1st, with a price of ¥5,290 (about $67 dollars). November 1st date is a month earlier than what SEGA had in their release schedule, but can’t complain about getting games early, right?
In addition to HD visuals SEGA will have more improvements for these two classic games. Load times will be reduced, you will be able to manage your item box in the phone booth, and foods you have eaten will now be checked off.
As for pre-order bonuses, they will be themed around the PS2 versions’ packaging. If you pre-order you get a dummy packaging of the original box in PS3 style. SEGA West, I want this so I can play Yakuza (the original) with Japanese voices!
