Sega also enhanced the Yakuza games with a few tweaks. You can access your item box from phone booths now.

    The begining of a beautiful series.

    Hopefully we get an English version, since I missed out on these games.

      Still Have hope?

  • Superior Spider-Man

    I had completely forgot this was coming out.

  • Kristina Wright

    Really hoping this makes it to the US/EU PSN, My PS3 needs to be used for something more than Hulu and Netflix.

      Looks like it’s Netflix 4 life

    I got into this series with Dead Souls of all things and have been playing them backwards.  I finished Dead Souls, then finished Yakuza 4, and I’m working on 3 at the moment.  I really hope the 1 & 2 HD collection makes it to the states.
    Can’t wait for Yakuza 5 as well!

  • Zero Shift

    About time they released an HD collection! I’ve been wanting to play this series for the longest time, but didn’t have access to the PS2 versions. Now I can have them all on my PS3.

  • It looks like the widescreen is still cropped. Very disappointed. Are all the movies real-time at least or did they cut corners there too?

  • Elvick

    Hope Sega bring this over. I’ve been waiting and hoping this would happen, so I could get into the series. Didn’t feel compelled to buy it on PS2.

  • That is a Yakuza with broad shoulders.
