It’s been a full year since the events of Yakuza Kiwami and fate has other things in mind for the legendary Dragon of Dojima, Kiryu Kazuma. In Yakuza Kiwami 2, one of the most beloved storylines in the franchise’s history, Kiryu finds himself back on the front lines of a potential all-out war, remade in full HD for the Playstation 4.
Ryu ga Gotoku/Yakuza returns in high form with Yakuza Kiwami 2, which will be released both physically and digitally on the Playstation 4 on August 28 2018. Pre-orders and first-run copies of Yakuza Kiwami 2 will come with an elaborate and tantalising SteelBook case featuring Kiryu and the Dragon of Kansai, his rival Ryuji Goda.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 Features:
- Dragons Belong on the Dragon Engine – Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a re-creation of the original Yakuza 2, completely rebuilt in the Dragon Engine, the same engine used in developing Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Experience gorgeous graphics on top of seamless transitions between battles or when entering or leaving buildings. All cutscenes and key voiced lines have been re-recorded to be as true to the original as possible, while reaping the benefits of the most powerful engine the Yakuza series has ever seen.
- Big Hits, Minigames – Kiryu hasn’t let his time away from the front lines dull his skills in combat or leisure. Pull off a wide variety of brutal (and hilarious) Heat Actions, and challenge new minigames such as Golf Bingo, the original arcade release of Virtual-On, the return of Yakuza 0‘s much-celebrated Cabaret (including the return of fan-favorite Yuki!), Majima’s revamped Clan Creator, and even SEGA’s infamous Toylets!
- Unveil the Truth of Goro Majima – This time around, Kiryu isn’t the only one running the show – fans of the Mad Dog of Shimano won’t want to miss this new Majima-centric campaign, which features Majima as a playable character, complete with his trusty dagger, and sheds light on his personal journey from the end of Yakuza Kiwami up to Yakuza Kiwami 2.
- Extreme Localization – SEGA has gone through the Yakuza Kiwami 2 script with a fine-toothed comb; every effort has been made to ensure that it’s the most faithful representation of the original Japanese. SEGA is committed to supporting the best Yakuza experience possible for the series’ dedicated fans around the world.
Join Kiryu, Majima, and the rest of the Kamurocho crew on 28 August 2018, only on Playstation 4.
