Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Yakuza 1&2 HD (or Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD if you want to use the Japanese title) was released for Wii-U this week. By the looks of things it hasn’t been too successful but that hasn’t stopped SEGA Japan from marketing it. Check out the below television advert for the game below:

A loose translation of the advert can be found below:

Husband: “Come at me!”
Haruka: “I want to watch anime.”
Wife: “Well, I’m heading out shopping.”
Haruka: “Okay!”
Wife: “By the way, don’t just play games. Please look after Haruka.”
Husband: “Ah, don’t worry, don’t worry.”
Wife: “See you.”
Haruka: “Have a nice trip!”
Husband: “Jun~ it’s been such a long time! Ahh, Jun~ You’re the best, of course~ Beautiful~”
Text: “Heehee… Come on, I told you not to say such embarrassing things”
Husband: “Oh, it’s not like that!”
Husband: “Since my fussy wife’s now gone, I finally got to come see you!”
Husband: “Today, let’s toast with some warm sake!”
Wife: “May I have a glass of sake as well?”
Husband: “Of course, cheer–”
Wife: “… I forgot my purse.”

The game is not being published by SEGA but it’s being developed by Starfish who are responsible for Elminage. The new version features improved graphics, stereoscopic 3D and rebalanced difficulty.
