Yakuza: Kiwami 2 officially announced, hits Japan this December


Yakuza themed PS4 and limited edition also announced

The Taiwanese leak was real: Yakuza: Kiwami 2 is happening. It will release on December 7, 2017 in Japan (no window for localization yet) using the Dragon Engine (same engine as Yakuza 6).

The remake will include new stories, some new voice cast (excluding Kiryu), and a new Majima Goro scenario called "Truth of Majima Goro." An 11,590 yen (~105USD) limited edition includes 10 business cards features the game's characters, a PlayStation 4 theme, PS4 avatars, a three-disc CD set, and some DLC.

The CD set consists of the Kazuma Kiryu Famous “Kiwami” CD, Majima Goro Famous "Kiwami" CD, and Yakuza: Kiwami & Yakuza: Kiwami 2 soundtrack. DLC includes exclusive costumes, exclusive weapons, one million in-game yen, and "Play Spot-exclusive additional characters."

A Yakuza: Kiwami 2 themed PS4 was even revealed. In either Jet Black or Glacier White, the dragon insignia-decorated console will launch the same day as the game in Japan and includes a special theme.

Hearing about how the first Kiwami is a direct improvement on the first, I'm glad I waited this long to get into the series. The original two PS2 games are apparently rare and expensive, and a pain in the ass to emulate. Now I can roll right through all the games and imagine myself in Japan from my Japanese apartment.
