While playing all those saucy hostess club sub-stories in private in the Yakuza 1 & 2 HD remake due later this year was already known -- thanks to this uncomfortably strange trailer -- a recent interview in Famitsu has shed additional light on other enhancements for the currently Japan and Wii U only upgrade.

Specifically regarding gameplay tweaks, the Yakuza team has made a bevy of changes that will make the game easier for newcomers. Functions have been revamped and are now less ambiguous, batting centers are easier to navigate, and signboards for specific places stand out more. Additionally an Easy and Heat Up mode (which allows for easier Heat Gauge boosting ) will be available from the beginning of the game. 

On top of making the game more family friendly with its Wii U GamePad play, there are also other upgrades that take advantage of the GamePads's screen. There's a map mode for easier navigation that allows player's to mark down key locations, logs available to monitor all the food eaten and sub-stories completed, and of course the ability to keep tabs on how one's romance is blooming with each of the game's hostess girls. 

The Wii U Pro Controller is also supported, but sadly still no word if the game will ever head west. The Yakuza series has had always had a rough time making its way out of Japan, but the Wii U needs games and this would be great way to reintroduce the series stateside as well.

Here's to wishful thinking...
