HD Yakuza 1 and 2 Re-Release Confirmed for Japan

by July 18, 2012

Coming to PS3 Later This Year

The weekly Famitsu magazine has confirmed an updated, high definition re-release of the first two Yakuza games is in the cards for Playstation 3.

The update has been hinted at for several days prior.  But Andriasang reports there will be more to it than just upgraded graphics:

In addition to the HD visuals, Sega has made some improvements to the two PS2 classics. Load times have been reduced. You can now manage your item box in the phone booth. Completionists will appreciate that food you’ve eaten at least once will now have a check mark shown on menus.

Sega is expected to make a formal announcement on Thursday.  There is no indication yet as to whether the update will come to the West.
