Weekly Famitsu has confirmed Yakuza 1&2 HD Edition for PlayStation 3. According to Tales Source, which obtained this week’s issue early, the magazine lists the HD remake of the two PS2 Yakuza games for November 1, priced ¥5,290. The November 1 date differs from the December 1 date that leaked out of Sega’s official release schedule.

This is likely the major announcement that Sega is teasing at the official Yakuza site, so expect an official unveiling tomorrow.

WAHOO! Now if only this will come to the west! Hopefully we’ll see some more about this tomorrow on the official site!


Additions to the HD Version include:

  • Faster Load Times
  • Organising Items at telephone boxes
  • Checklists like food now has check marks
  • Preorder bonuses will be themed around PS2 versions of the game
