Yakuza, for the first time on a non-PlayStation platform.

Yakuza 1&2 HD Edition, initially launched on PlayStation 3 in Japan last year, is coming to Wii U, Sega announced during today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct.

The game, called Yakuza 1&2 HD for Wii U, will feature off-screen GamePad play and other Wii U-specific features. It will launch on August 8 in Japan for 5,229 yen at retail and 4,700 yen via the Nintendo eShop.

Yakuza 1&2 HD for Wii U was not announced during the Sega portion of today’s North American and European Nintendo Directs. Which means localization is either not happening, or not yet decided.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.
