Yakuza Kiwami 2 Coming To The West For PS4

Yakuza Kiwami 2 launches in the West this August

If you're still digging into Yakuza 6, take your time with that one.

Sega has revealed Yakuza Kiwami 2, released this past December in Japan, will launch in the West on August 28, 2018. This is the fastest release of a Yakuza title in the West. Players who do pre-order Yakuza Kiwami 2 can get a limited edition steel book while supplies last.

Sega wisely chose to wait until there were barely any notable games being announced or released to let fans of the Yakuza series know that the complete remake of Yakuza 2 would be making its way to the West later this year in August. I won't spoil it for you, but since the game has been released in Japan, you can look it up if you're truly curious. Kiryu and Majima are my favorite duo in the game, so once the remake of the original Yakuza released a year ago, I quickly added it to my PS4 collection. From the global development studio that introduced the world to Kazuma Kiryu, Ryu Ga Gotoku returns in high form with Yakuza Kiwami 2. The game also features Goro Majima as a playable character, in addition to main star Kazuma Kiryu.

Much like the other Yakuza remake, Kiwami 2 comes with a laundry list of new content.

So, the fans of the series will be able to enjoy Yakuza Kiwami 2 from August 28th.

Extreme Localization - We've 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. The announcement trailer can be seen below.
