Sega has officially announced Yakuza: Kiwami 2 following a leak earlier this week.

The new sequel will launch for PlayStation 4 on December 7th in Japan. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the upcoming remake.

As we covered in our previous report, the game is a remake of Yakuza 2, and it’s built within the latest version of the Dragon Engine, which the studio used to make Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. 

Here are the game’s first screenshots and key art:

Fans can expect a new “The Truth of Majima Goro” chapter that features a playable Majima Goro, as well as a big number of previously untold stories, and new voice actor roles.

    Now if they remake 3-5, Kenzan, and release Isshin my life will be complete lol. Even if they don’t do it for 3-5 just remastering Kenzan and putting it on my modern platforms will be awesome.
