Sega unveils revamped Sotenbori for Yakuza Kiwami 2


New stores and sidequests

Sega has updated its official site for Yakuza Kiwami 2, with a lovely selection of new screen shots showing off Sotenbori, the second district visited by Kazuma and friends during the events of the sequel's story.

The classy, expensive entertainment district, which is based off of real-life location Doutonbori in Osaka, has never looked better, brought to life by the power of modern gaming technology and filled with new stores and distractions to while away the hours in between laying waste to the Omi Alliance gangsters that popularise the district.

New locations include restaurants, shops and a sweet indoor putting green. There are also some new quest-givers waiting to pounce on Kiryu, including one guy who needs the rugged dreamboat to fill in for an absent photography model. As the site states: "
Can Kiryu’s poses really make the art director’s soul tremble?"

We'll hopefully find out in a localisation, which must surely be on the horizon. Lucky Japanese gamers will be able to hit Sotenbori on December 7, when Yakuza Kiwami 2 launches on PS4.
