Today Sega hosted a reveal event at the Akihabara UDX Theater in Tokyo, and Yakuza series Producer Toshihiro Nagoshi officially announced Yakuza Kiwami 2. Similiar to Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the old and glorious Yakuza 2 released for PS2 in Japan in 2006 (and in 2008 in the west). It will release in Japan and Asia for PS4 on December 7th, 2017.

 

Visuals will be fully overhauled using the latest version of the Dragon Engine that powers Yakuza 6, and the game will also include updates to the story, audio and activities available. A relevant addition is that fan-favorite character Goro Majima will be playable in his own new scenario.

Yakuza 6's engine is really damn neat. I played the Japanese demo and I'm glad they'll use it here too. Not that there's anything wrong with 0's engine, but the newer one feels more current gen-ish.

It's great news. Y2 is suppossed to be the fan favorite title in the series.

I really don't think this needed a separate thread from the Kiwami 1, think there should be a thread for the entire series, but whatever, looks great, glad to see they're using the engine from 6 (Like said) and I look forward to playing playing this... in 2019.

Guys, if you have Kiwami remember to take the survey! It's a survey about localization of futher Yakuza titles so it's very important! When you highlight the game on your ps4, press down (where the dlcs and so on usually are), the survey will be on the right side.

11 pages, took me maybe 5 minutes? It's a fun survey that asks you for your honest opinion.

Damn, earlier than expected tbh. August 28th! Btw... maybe we should really merge this thread into the Kiwami thread (and maybe rename it "Yakuza series" as mentioned).

Here's hoping Ishin (Doubt it but can't stop hoping for it) and Hokuto ga Gotoku are next.

They're considering creating Yakuza 0-2, a sequel to Y0 and prequel to Kiwami!

So, anyone played Yakuza 6 yet? I only played the demo and I'm considering getting it soon. I think the new engine does a great job. A makeover like this is always risky but it seems like it's still 100% a Yakuza game.

Surprisingly, the standard price over here is just 50 euros instead of the usual 60 for new games. They come with a fancy steelbook that has an artbook inside. I want to add it to my tiny collection as I already own the Kiwami steelbook. I just wish I had one for Yakuza 0.

Oh and I've started watching story recaps of Y2-5. Wanna know the whole story before jumping onto 6. I've heard it's a direct sequel to Y5.
