Andriasang‘s generally reliable early Famitsu leaks report that Sega’s major Yakuza announcement is an HD remake bundle of the first two Yakuza games. The re-release is expected in early November – although previous rumours had it down for December – exclusively for PlayStation 3. We’re waiting on the magazine’s release for more information. The first two entries in the action series arrived on PS2; Yakuza 3 and 4 are available on PS3, and a fifth release is due this year.

SEGA’s teasing a Yakuza announcement for Thursday, July 19 on the main Yakuza website portal. Andriasang suggests the announcement could pertain to the Yakuza 1&2 HD Edition which popped up the publisher’s release schedule before it was pulled, because if it were about Yakuza 5, the tease would likely be posted on the game’s website. Guess we’ll all find out in a couple more days.

SEGA has released a new video for Yakuza: Dead Souls showing some of the mini-games you’ll be participating in when you take a break from bashing zombies in the face. You’ll notice in the video that your character can participate in a bit of blackjack, fishing, roulette, bowling, darts, ping pong, dancing and even try your hand at cracking baseballs in a batting range. If that still sounds a bit too strenuous, how about unwinding in a hot tub or visiting a Hostess Club? The choice is yours. Yakuza: Dead Souls releases on March 13 in North America, March 15 in Australia and March 16 across Europe, exclusively for PS3.
