Update: Japanese publication Famitsu is confirming that Sega is indeed releasing an HD remake of Yakuza 1 & 2, and will be released in November in Japan.
Sega is planning some sort of announcement regarding the Yakuza series, which sounds like whatever it is will be unveiled on July 19. The teaser is being translated by sites in Japan, which shows an image and a countdown timer, that ends in on July 19.
As Andriasang noted, this teaser is coming from the main Yakuza site, and not the official site for Yakuza 5, which they feel indicates a HD remake for Yakuza 1 & 2. Apparently, a release schedule was leaked last week, which had these remakes on them, even though Sega had yet to officially announce anything. (more…)
