Yakuza Kiwami 2

After the briefest of teases yesterday, Sega has announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be heading to Steam on May 9th.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is, for those not fully briefed on their Yakuza series history, the second of Sega's efforts to remake the original Yakuza PlayStation 2 games. It initially launched in Japan in 2017 (and at the end of last year in the UK), and gives Yakuza 2, first seen all the way back in 2006, a thoroughly modern makeover, courtesy of Yakuza 6's Dragon engine.

As you might very well imagine, Yakuza Kiwami 2 follows on from the events of the first game, and sees series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu forced to return to Toyko (a trip that eventually takes him to Osaka) after Yukio Terada, the Fifth Chairman of the Tojo Clan, is assassinated.

Gaming’s best dads will return to dispense fatherly advice and bodyslam baddies in Yakuza Kiwami 2 this May, Sega confirmed today. Kiryu and Majima will bring more crime melodrama, more minigames, more daft quests, more japes, and more mobsters whipping their jackets and shirts off in one single dramatic movement to reveal their tattoos when it’s go time. This remake of 2006’s Yakuza 2 is the latest in Sega’s mobster/father brawler-RPG series, though we’ve still not seen Yakuza 6 on PC – or any of the other games from previous console generations. The point is, we’ll hear more men shout “KIRYYYYUUUUU!”
