Do we have a chance for an international release?

A few days ago we got a look at the upcoming Yakuza 1 & 2 HD re-release for the Wii U, and now, the full trailer is ready for eyeball consumption. As is the case with any Yakuza game, it shows off some insane gameplay variety, from combat, to sports, to hostess entertainment. You'll be able to use the GamePad as a map, as well as a status screen and remote play.

Yakuza 2 in particular is one of my favorite games of all time, so I really hope this gets a release outside of Japan. As it stands, it'll hit Eastern shores on August 8th.
