If it's an HD revamp, it has to include trophies.

I never played the first 2, but I got the back story from the cut scene vids in the menu of Yakuza 3 and 4. Still want to play them though.

Still let's be cautious doesnt say anything yet about the western versions .

Basically all the Yakuza games have seen a western release especially this gen, so i will not be surprised if the HD collection does come over.

So weird, I was just thinking the other night while trying to get to sleep - "I wonder if a Yakuza HD Collection would ever happen? What would be so cool." Couple of days later, BAM! confirmed (sort of).

This makes me happy. 2 is the best entry of lot - bonafide masterpiece. I hope they release the first one with the Japanese dub intact this time; the Western dub ruined the game for me, it was so misplaced.

I completely agree on the English dub. I just had to shut it off during the early on sub-story, "The price of a d-cup", when the bar-master (tender) threatens Kiryu, and Kiryu responds, "Bring that shit". If anyone's at all familiar with Kuroda Takaya (Kiryu's actor) never says anything like that. I've played through every Yakuza game to come west, save the first. I'm really hoping they leave the Japanese track intact. :)

Yakuza 2 has the best story everrrr..

Damn watched the story to these games on Yakuza 3 to get up to date because I never played the originals.
Will still pick this up though just for the epic fights and trophys.

Pros: Anything Yakuza is good news.

Cons: If it does come to the US it'll most likely be digital dl only. Also hd versions will only look maybe about as good as 3 and 4 do on ps3. Not all that graphically impressive to begin with.
But I still love it and will buy.
ps: ...Bring over Kenzan and an hd port of black panther to ps3 and I will kiss someones ass. ANYONES!

Seriously though. I hope it's a success.

Cool; I never did beat 2..

Oh my sweet Lord! I was hoping SEGA would do this. I've never been able to get through the original Yakuza because of the horrible English dub, so I'm hoping they'll leave the original Japanese track intact. To be able to play through both games in HD would be epic, as that word describes the Yakuza series pretty well, haha. :)

Hopefully this comes to the US. I never played the first two but I own 3&4

Beautiful! Always wanted to experience the story before Yakuza 3.
