Poor sales for Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Wii U in Japan

yakuza 1 & 2 HD wii U

We got bad news guys, especially for you Wii U owners and/or Yakuza fans. In fact last week SEGA released its Yakuza 1 & 2 HD remake on the Wii U in Japan, and that’s good, but guess what…sells aren’t going as expected.

Maybe it’s more appropriate say that the first instalation of the Yakuza saga outside a Sony console is facing proper poor sales; the game didn’t even make in the top 50 chart of the week, selling barely 1800 copies. Yes, just 1800 copies, in Japan.

You already know where we are going to say, right? We can now only assume the worst for the series’ future in the West, starting with no hope for an outside-Japan release of this remake and moreover, not many chances to see Yakuza 5 localized. Why? Well, if the series doesn’t sell in Japan, how can it sell in USA and Europe?
