Yakuza Kiwami 2 launches in August

Yakuza Kiwami 2 launches in the West this August

Yakuza Kiwami 2 heads to the West on August 28

Yakuza Kiwami 2 releases exclusively on PS4 August 28. (I got the game in a holiday sale along with Yakuza 0, which was my first exposure to the series; I adored it.) With Kiwami 2 confirmed for August in the West, I feel like I'll never catch up with this series.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the 2006 PS2 game Yakuza 2. Pre-orders and first-run copies of Yakuza Kiwami 2 will come in a SteelBook featuring Kiryu and Ryuji Goda.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 was released in Japan on December 7, 2017, marking what might be the quickest localization turnaround of any game in this series yet. It will show his side of the story after the events of Yakuza Kiwami. 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. The Yakuza games have usually revolved around a central cast of characters, with some of the games having multiple playable protagonists. Additional new content includes Yakuza 6's Clan Creator mode, a return of the Cabaret, new mini-games, heat actions and more.

Tekken fans who are fans of the Yakuza series as well will be excited to know that Sato has mentioned that Kazuma Kiryu could be in Tekken 7 if Producer Katsushiro Harada likes the idea and the team would think about it.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 has already released in Japan.
