The Wii U port sales woes continue with Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, as the game reportedly shipped less than 2000 copies in its first week in Japan. Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi stated in the past that the release is an "experiment," so it sounds like they fully expected this turnout. It's a shame since it probably eliminates any chance of an international release, but at least try tried!

I'm starting to think more publishers would benefit from releasing HD remakes worldwide on the same day, solely on the eShop, sold at a discounted rate of $20 to $30.

Yakuza 1&2 HD ad features a broken marriage, or something

Yakuza and Yakuza 2 are getting the HD treatment, though as it stands the bundle is exclusive to both the Wii U and Japan. Because I'm still bitter about Valkyria Chronicles, I'll just assume they're never coming stateside b...more

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD announced for Wii U ... in Japan

With all of the Nintendo Direct news to have come out this morning, it's been a busy day for Sega. ("Sega Direct," indeed.) One of the more interesting games shown off is, regrettably, exclusive to Japan. Yakuza 1 & 2 HD...more

Four new super cute Spelunky toys are inbound

I never got around to buying some of those Spelunky Minis. Now's my chance. Starting tomorrow, Fangamer will have the two-inch PVC figurines back in stock. And there are four new Minis to collect: Yeti King, Old Bitey, Alien Lord, and Anubis. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but these do come in blind boxes, unfortunately. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more

Alright, I need this Gravity Rush figure in my life

I don't like stuff. Maybe living lean is a product of smaller San Francisco living arrangements, maybe it's a product of semi-frequent moves, but I don't like to own a lot of things. Figures have almost always fallen into thi...more
