Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Yakuza 1 And 2 HD On Wii U To Test Interest Of Nintendo Fanbase

Posted on Tuesday, May 28 @ 14:53:33 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack


Sega is bringing Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2 in HD form to the Wii U. Although it looks like there's a bright future for the series on Nintendo hardware, it'll need to sell well before anything more becomes of it.

During an interview Yakuza Producer Toshihiro Nagoshi shared the following:

To be honest, we’re not aiming to see if the game will be a smash hit. Our real intention is that we want to see how people respond.

The existing [Wii U] users are different [from PlayStation owners], so isn’t it hard to say if it makes sense? It isn’t jumping ship to Nintendo hardware, Yakuza 1 & 2 are coming out on the Wii U, and this is what it is.

Wii U software hasn't sold particularly well and in-fact has one of the lowest attachment rates of recent years. Furthermore, Yakuza will have to find a way to spark interest from Nintendo's install base. The series' mature themes don't fit well on the platform, either. The similarly violent ZombiU has sold around 400k units, a disappointing number for a flagship release title that was marketed heavily.

Yakuza 4 is considered by many to be the best entry in the series. It'll take some convincing before Sega is willing to invest time into porting a couple more games over to the Wii U.
