this... this makes no sens. I'm happy more people can enjoy the glory of Yakuza series but this is just wrong on so many levels. Late port of decades old games that have no fan base on this manufacturer and that have no chance whatsoever to play the new games of this same franchise.

I don't get it.

It's so out of all logic.

Sounds like a lot of previous Wii U releases, to be honest.

At least the PS3 version is region-free.

I'm totally down for that Yakuza 1&2 HD port.

What would be awesome is if they remade Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2 in HD or brought the Gamecube one back from the dead on the Virtual Console, including online play. I know I'd definitely buy it...

On the other hand, actual games on the Wii U.

Yay.

Would Japanese audience triple-dip for this??? I doubt it...
Well at least SEGA is showing some support to the WiiU, good thing :D

I did not expect this. I assume that if it sees a release in the West, it will be published by Nintendo.

Also, Nagoshi looks good again!

It makes sense for crazy Japan. This'll never happen in the US/Europe.

Did anyone notice the terrible framework for this game during the Nintendo direct?

What is up with Wii U and framerate problems?

If the Wii u version somehow got localised and not the ps3 version I might commit.

Realistically were probably getting neither also where is my Yakuza 5! SEGA!

The negativity in this thread

Incredible
Negativity? People are just being realistic.
It's much more incredible seeing people shouting ALL OVER MY FACE for a port of 2 seven years old games which already came out on the PS3.
