It’s an early holiday miracle! SEGA has announced they are bringing an HD remake of the first Yakuza to PS4. The game will feature redone and full Japanese voice-overs from the original actors, an HD graphical overhaul (including 1080p/60fps) and additional cutscenes and more!
I am down with that. Apparently, they are also including a “Majima Anywhere” mode where the one-eyed mad man will pop out at during mundane and weird situations to randomly challenge Kazuma.
Great stuff, SEGA. Time for me to start hounding the local game stores to make sure I get a copy at launch. Why? Because a physical release is in the works! Boo-yah!
I am currently in the process of buying all the parts to make a driving race seat for Daytona HD. Nothing made me happier than hearing the rumours that was bringing Daytona USA back to arcades -the prototype machine takes a lot of the nice design cues from the original cabinet.
Hopefully SEGA brings this home in short order! So, SEGA how about you do me a solid and make Daytona 3 Thrustmaster TX/T800 compatible for PS4 or Xbox One (with force feedback and shifter support)?
I often walk into Ebgames (Game Stop) here in Canada and just randomly ask them to check on their computers as to when the next Yakuza game is coming out. I do this despite the fact that I get the press releases sent right to my inbox.
Why? I want them to order more than one freaking boxed copy of the game! Anyway, SEGA has finally announced that Yakuza Zero will be headed exclusively to the PS4 as boxed and digital release for early 2017 (January 24 to be exact) in the West and this includes Europe.
The Taxman himself has gone on record calling the graphics of Sonic Mania “Saturn-esque retro 2D” over on NeoGAF. I couldn’t be happier because I will no longer need to think what would have a really great Saturn Sonic title looked like…because his team is making it.
I’ve been thinking a lot about Outrun and how it is one of the best racing games ever. I would love to one day own an Outrun 2 SP cabinet. I really hope that SEGA revisits the series soon in its more modern form and doesn’t leave a quality AM2 developed home port with force feedback support in Japan (like it did during the PS2 era).
I get the sense a lot of fans would love to get their hands on this game again as the PC version isn’t on STEAM and the HD version on PS3 and Xbox 360 disappeared when SEGA lost the Ferrari license.
My heart pounds with excitement. No Western release information yet but with SEGA currently trending towards catering to fans – one can hope this gets some kind of boutique release.
It looks like Beat Takeshi is in this one as well (he might have been in 5, I haven’t played it yet). The action seems to take place in a variety of the locations of previous games with Hiroshima being a new focus.
Uhhhh…I have this lovely title sitting on my desk as I type this out. It has been on there for the last 3 days…the trials of parenting and time management :/ It is still sealed and I haven’t smelt the ink of the art book.
Even worse, I’ve had Yakuza 5 since launch and haven’t had a chance to play a minute of it.
