  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 launches in the West this August

Past year we got Yakuza Kiwami, which was a remake of the PlayStation 2 original brought into the modern HD PS4 era.

Yakuza Kiwami 2, which launched in December a year ago in Japan, will be making its way across the pond on August 28.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 can be purchased digitally or physically and releases August 28, 2018.

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.

Yakuza Kiwami 2, released in Japan last December, is coming to the west in a special edition steelbook.


But now, fans in other parts of the world will have a chance to enjoy the revamped visuals and graphics of the original Yakuza 2. Players will control the Mad Dog of Shimano and learn his untold story between Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2.

A new logo has also been announced for the studio working on Yakuza games, the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, and you can check it out at the bottom of the post.

The localization has also been reworked, so it's "the most faithful representation of the original Japanese", according to Sega. He explained that this entry is a huge favorite with the developers, along with the fan base, and suggested that the team might be looking into a few ideas for a possible spin-off, like Yakuza 0-2. Check out the announcement trailer above.

Yakuza Kiwami 2's launch comes exactly a year after the first Yakuza Kiwami arrived in the West. Will you be picking up Yakuza 6 when it is released next month?
