Yakuza 1& 2 HD coming to Wii U in Japan

Via (shudder) Kotaku comes news that Yakuza 1&2 HD is making its way to the Wii U in Japan. Already released to PS3, the collection will be hitting the Wii U in August, and will utilize the GamePad by way of in-game maps and GamePad-only play. No mention has been made of a Western release, and given that the PS3 version has not made its way West, a Wii U Western release would be a bold move for Nintendo. Given the recent Sonic exclusivity announcement, making such a bold move isn’t such a crazy possibility for Nintendo and SEGA.

    It is somewhat random but anything to get this series more attention is a good thing.

    I hope this makes it over. Then I have another good reason to get a WiiU.

    I am more surprised that Yakuza left Playstations for once….though I don’t have a problem with it

    Maybe its more likely now that this will come over to the west, I hope!, since nintendo need games for wii u so it will bring anything over (looks at project x zone on 3ds). I think more platforms for yakuza is a good thing.

    Nintendo, drop the bomb! Shenmue III on Wii U!

    Hey, I can dream, can’t I? And right now, I’d say Nintendo is the best shot for a Shenmue revival. They’d be performing a miracle if they’ll do it.

    Plus, maybe another Nintendo/SEGA F-Zero… Oh baby, make my dreams come true…

    Glad Yakuza is no longer a PlayStation thing. Hope it comes to everything next gen. If SEGA is going to push the series so hard, they need to have it on everything and consider it a successful legacy franchise like Virtua Fighter or Super Monkey Ball.
