Sega's Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Coming To Japanese WiiU Consoles

tumblr mmy4rvMMeg1rsl35ao2 500Long-time fans of Sega's outstanding Yakuza franchise have waited a long time to see the original PlayStation 2 titles recieve a well deserved HD makeover.  Now you need wait no longer - as Sega has announced a shiny-new HD collection coming to WiiU.

If you haven't had the pleasure of sampling Kamurocho's finest, then now would be as good a time as any as the Yakuza series has become well-known for its complex, cinematic narrative, ridiculous amounts of content and some of the most vibrant, immersive gameplay environments created to date. 

The news marks the first time the series has appeared on a non-Sony console, however the console's GamePad seems a perfect fit for titles in which map reading is a necessity.

Both games have seen release in their HD format on PS3  as digital software in Japan, however there has been no mention of a Western release on either platform.

Yakuza HD releases  on WiiU in Japan on August 8th.
