Before Sega remade the first two Yakuza games as Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2, they released a remastered compilation of both entries for the PS3 and Wii U under the title Ryu ga Gotoku 1&2 HD Edition. Needless to say, the soda machines received a fresh coat of paint.

If you can count on the Yakuza series for anything, it’s soda machines. Yakuza: Dead Souls for the PS3 is no exception.
