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.
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.
SEGA has been impressing me of late which they haven’t really done since the heyday of the Xbox 360 era (Outrun, Daytona, SEGA Rally, Vanquish, VF5, Bayonetta, etc) but that is because they are finally bringing some of the quirky Japanese titles over such as Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax and Project Diva.
Wow…it is hard to believe that a game series that I started reviewing back when nobody knew who Miku was is getting a North American 3DS release in about week and has a fresh entry coming for the PS4 and PS Vita.
I think I’ve had a copy of this game for pre-ordered for years now but it is finally coming on September 27, 2015. The game features a full tate mode and will run at 480p over VGA.
The game features 5 levels with massive bosses and a 2 player mode. Players have 3 different ships to choose from The game has support for arcade sticks and VMU units. Fans of Gun Lord will be happy to know that the soundtrack is composed by Rafael Dyll.
It is nice to see a new indie game on the Dreamcast with high production values. It is also nice to have a nice new STG title as well.
