Yakuza 2 Is Getting The Kiwami Treatment

Yakuza 2 Kiwami has been officially revealed at SEGA press event in Tokyo

There are only a few days left until Yakuza Kiwami, the HD remake of the original Yakuza on PlayStation 2, hits stores in the West – and now Yakuza 2 Kiwami has been officially announced at Tokyo event hosted by SEGA. News of the release leaked ahead of time this week after a listing accidentally went live on the Taiwanese PSN store.

Just like in Yakuza Kiwami, this will be a remake of Yakuza 2 built from the ground up, with updated visuals and gameplay, and plenty of new content added. The good news is that Yakuza 2 Kiwami will now be running on the Dragon Engine, the same engine powering next year’s Yakuza 6. It was also announced that Goro Majima will be a playable character in a brand new substory.

SEGA have been giving the Yakuza series a lot of attention recently, much to fans’ pleasure, so to see that support continuing strong is encouraging. We recently reviewed Yakuza Kiwami here at DYEGB, scoring it a respectable 8.5 and citing the fantastic work in remaking the first game from the ground up, so here’s hoping the same amount of love goes into Yakuza 2 Kiwami.
