Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

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.
