First two Yakuza games to go HD

Fans of the Yakuza games have something to be happy about. The original two PS2 titles are coming to PS3 in full HD according to a leaked copy of Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu.

Popular Japanese gaming website Adriasang reported the leaked details last night. You can read the original report here.

Along with HD, the game will also reportedly feature quicker load times, and additional features not found in the original games. The games packaging will apparently be designed to mimic the look of the original PS2 titles. Nostalgia anyone?

The game is said to have a November 1st release date in Japan, but no word on the European/US dates yet.
