NeoGAF forumite duckroll has revealed an official listing for a Ryu ga Gotoku (Yakuza) Collection on Sega's site. Of course, Sega has already seen fit to take the listing down but the catched picture below doesn't really care about that , does it?
According to this listing, a Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition is on the way at least in Japan for a pending release date of December 1, 2012 for 5,229 yen. That equates to about $66 US.
Both Yakuza 3 and Yakuza 4 have summary videos of the happenings in the first two Yakuza titles, but that doesn't really cut it. However, finding either of those two titles for PlayStation 2 can be quite a difficult feat, let alone beating them.
Let's hope that this HD collection improves upon the controls and quest system for the original titles and is able to apply some of the realistic city graphics of the modern Yakuza titles.
