It seems like just yesterday people were saying there is no way Yakuza was coming to the Wii U my what a difference a week makes.

I like Nintendo and everything, but I think I made a comment last week about there being no way Yakuza would come to Wii U. Good to be wrong, I guess.

Looks pretty good actually, wonder if they'll head stateside? Nintendo did manage to bring some games like The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles over here after enough people showed interest.

I thought it was XSeed that published the last story and Pandora's tower in the US.

While I would love to be wrong, it won't.

Most if not all Ryu ga Gotoku fans are Sony side (since it was a PlayStation exclusive franchise) and that wasn't enough to get a port of the PS3 version. No amount of requesting will connivence Sega to port the Wii U version if they aren't willing to port 5 and HD Collection for the PS3, DLC characters for Binary Domain and the PSP game.

What a backstab to Sony.

good news for wii u owners, Yacuza welcome to ur new home

Why so it can fail and not sell on the Wii U. All you Nintendo fans have been complaining about getting ports regardless of how great the game was. Here you're getting a HD port of a pair of PS2 games and you're welcoming it like it's free money.

No backstabbing at all, there have being already 8 Yakuza games on PS devices before the series now going to a different platform. The Yakuza games are a guaranteed success on PlayStation, & it's good to see the series is expanding & get a chance to reach to a different audience, just like Monster Hunter, Biohazard, Tekken, Ace Combat among others, I bet to Sony doesn't see this as a back-stab, that means they were right in supporting the series, 8 successful games is big enough for Sega to expand the franchise. Now looking at Nintendo getting acquiring the rights to the Xeno games, Fatal Frame, the early Biohazard deal, now Monster Hunter & others, there's already a pattern Nintendo is going after, games that have being very successful on Playstation, typical Nintendo trick.

MasterCornholio1161d ago

Nope because Sony will probably get a new Yakuza game instead of a port of the first two.

If Yakuza were to become an exclusive franchise to the Wii U then that would be a backstab to Sony.

Anyways if Wii U fans want a new Yakuza game then they will have to buy this collection otherwise a new Yakuza game will never come to the Wii U. You guys know that the developers are just doing this to test the demand for Yakuza on the Wii U right?

We need to see the HD collection come to the States, along with Yakuza 5.

This actually looks pretty good. Might have to sell those PS2 games now.
