For the first time the Yakuza series is leaving PlayStation consoles. Sega will release Yakuza 1 & 2 HD for Wii U on August 8, which is a port of the PlayStation 3 compilation released in Japan last year.
Yakuza 1 & 2 HD for Wii U includes the first two games with remastered graphics and if all of the PlayStation 3 features are intact, easy mode. New for the Wii U version is Gamepad support which lets players view maps on or play the game directly on it.
If you want an idea of how Sega enhanced the graphics check out this comparison of PlayStation 3 screenshots from Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition PlayStation 3 and the PS2 games.
