HD remakes of first two Yakuza games out in Japan this November
High-definition remakes of iconic Japanese action games coming to PS3 this year; includes reduced load times.
Sega today announced through Japanese magazine Famitsu that high-definition remastered versions of Yakuza 1 and 2 will be released this year as a bundle. According to website Andriasang, the collection will be out on November 1 in Japan for the PlayStation 3.
While updated visuals for both previously-released PS2 games are expected, players will also experience reduced load times, and the ability to manage their inventory items through phone booths around the city. Customers who pre-order the game will receive a bonus clear folder featuring the Japanese box art for Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2.
The set will be priced at 5,290 yen ($67), though there is currently no confirmation on whether the package will be available solely as a digital release on the PlayStation Network store, or as a retail product.
