According to Siliconera, the upcoming Yakuza 1 & 2 HD collection will include an “Easy + Heat Up Mode”. This mode makes the enemies easier to defeat and also helps you fill your heat gauge faster. Apparently the games’ original easy modes weren’t easy enough.
Yakuza 1&2 HD Edition comes out in Japan on November 15th. There is still no word on a Western release at this time.
