Yakuza Kiwami 2 Announcement Leaked for PlayStation 4

We’ve learned that Sega is working on Yakuza Kiwami 2.

The news comes from the Taiwanese PlayStation Store (via NeoGAF), which prematurely posted the game ahead of its planned announcement.

Sega is planning a Yakuza stage presentation for this on August 26th. The listing mentions the game is a full remake of Yakuza 2, and is built within the newest build of the Dragon Engine, which Sega used to make Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

The first Yakuza Kiwami was released for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan, with a PlayStation 4-only release in North America and Europe.

    I’m gonna fucking cream myself god damn, SEGA is getting all my fucking money, I even got that sick new edition of Song of Life pre ordered and I’m fucking shitting myself waiting for Kiwami in the mail

    Come to think of it I need to send SEGA my dry cleaning bill

    It wouldn’t suprise me if they remade all Yakuza games

  • sanic

    Neat I’ll play it in 18 months I imagine.

  • Mr. Capo

    Will definitely buy this. Bought both 0 and Kiwami.

  • Hope they remake all of them and they all come to PC.

  • Damn, Sega, my boner can’t get any bigger.

    …Or maybe…

    …you do know the creator already said that eventually he wants to do remakes of Yakuza 2, 3, 4 and 5 right? We already know that this is just the beginning :)

  • Leandro Teixeira

    Really hope for a 3 Remake with all the cut out content back in

  • Terra

    Now there is no argument for playing the PS2 editions.

    Before you could at least say that going from Kiwami to Yakuza 2 on PS2 is hard.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I remember hearing that, but now it sounds like it’s actually going to happen. Hype.

  • CrimsonColossus

    Did he say 3-5 were getting remakes? I thought they were only planning on porting them?

  • CrimsonColossus

    Going from Kiwami 2 to Yakuza 3 is still gonna be pretty hard. 3 is only a small improvement over 2.

  • MusouTensei

    One one side, fuck yeah, one the other is fucks up my planned Yakuza marathon, now I really don’t feel like playing Yakuza 2 on PS2 after I have finished Kiwami. Though if they really going to bring 3-5 to PS4 as well, I will wait for those too anyway.

    Only a couple of months left until the first PC release.

    2-5 months.

  • Jacopo Castellani

    He talked about wanting to remake all the games, the porting was something that was said like a year after that.
