Tired of cracking heads with a bat? Use it to play some good old baseball!

There are some good news to Yakuza fans out there.  Yakuza 1 & 2 HD is launching today in Japan ( Although no word on a western release), and there are some new screen to you to see how much better it looks now!

And not only that. A new video shows that the classic Baseball minigame is back in Yakuza 5. You will play as Tatsuo Shinada, a washed off baseball star. He used to play at the Nagoya Wyverns, but a gambling scandal he is forcefully retired from the baseball fields. Now he can swing the bat and hit some balls, along with a highschool teammate.

The baseball minigame is quite a tradition at Yakuza, since the first one.  You can see the video of it, along with the new screens of Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, down below.
