Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the PS2 game that released in 2008 in the West. This remake utilizes the latest Dragon game engined that powered Yakuza 6: The Song of Life which allowed players to freely roam, engage in battles, and play mini-games without entering a loading screen. New mini-games, side stories, and a brand new story scenario featuring series favorite Goro Majima will also be included in the remake.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 will launch in Japan on December 7, 2017. A western release has yet to be announced, but will likely happen considering almost all games in the series made its way to the West. In the meantime, fans can wait for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life to launch on March 20, 2018.
