Yakuza HD Collection Announced, North American Release Still Pending

Prepare to head back to the east. Sega doesn’t care about no Sleeping Dogs! The Yakuza series has been going strong for some time now and it is also jumping on the HD Collection bandwagon. Sega is re-releasing Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2 with HD updates for the PS3 this Novemeber in the Yakuza HD Collection.

That date is just for Japan, though. Although Yakuza games normally find themselves localized, fans still get uppity whenever a new one is announced. Should be interested to see how this one goes. With Sega’s financials in a mix and the company re-evaluating their titles, perhaps this Yakuza will stay at home.
