Yakuza HD Collection sees poor launch sales in Japan

Released as “an experiment” to see whether Wii U owners would be enticed by SEGA’s traditionally hardcore output, launch week sales for SEGA’s Yakuza HD remasters are somewhat disappointing.

It didn’t even place within the top 50 software chart, which means that the collection, which comprises of Yakuza and its sequel, only manage to achieve sales below that of the lowest charted release, Battlefield 3.
That DICE’s title only achieved a meagre 1,878 sales that week provides grim news indeed for SEGA, and indeed Nintendo, somewhat stifling hope that they will bring further Yakuza outings to the console.
