Yakuza: Kiwami 2: PS4 Exclusive Gets a Western Release Date

If you're still digging into Yakuza 6, take your time with that one.

The Song of Life is slated to release for the rest of the world next month, Sega has also announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will indeed be releasing in the West for the PlayStation 4. That's not all, though - pre-orders and first-run copies of Yakuza: Kiwami 2 will come in an elaborate SteelBook featuring Kiryu and his fierce rival, the Dragon of Kansai, Ryuji Goda. Yakuza Kiwami 2 will come just nine months after its release in Japan, faster than nearly every Yakuza game before it.

A lot of fans are excited that Sega has chose to finally listen to fans and bring the game over in its entirety for fans, and doing so in the exact same year that they've released Yakuza 6. Now, in back-to-back years, the West will receive two titles in the series within the same year, with Yakuza Kiwami 2 being the second. For those who might not have been keeping up with all of these releases, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is basically a remake of Yakuza 2, similar to how Yakuza Kiwami was a remake of Yakuza 1. The Dragon Engine itself ensures that load times are limited, and there are nearly no transition periods between entering buildings and getting into combat. There's a new side story that follows the life of Goro "Mad Dog" Majima between the events of Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, as well as expanding on events in Yakuza 0.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 was released in Japan on December 7, 2017, marking what might be the quickest localization turnaround of any game in this series yet. There, you can experience the story through a 10-part interactive digital comic series as well as comprehensive character maps and timelines.
