The original Yakuza Kiwami was a remake of the original Yakuza game, and brought the experience into the modern era. From the global development studio that introduced the world to Kazuma Kiryu, Ryu Ga Gotoku returns in high form with Yakuza Kiwami 2.

During an event held at the Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles, SEGA announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will arrive in the West this year. Fans in the western part of the world can look forward to diving into this story August 28. The Dragon Engine itself ensures that load times are limited, and there are nearly no transition periods between entering buildings and getting into combat.

Sega wisely chose to wait until there were barely any notable games being announced or released to let fans of the Yakuza series know that the complete remake of Yakuza 2 would be making its way to the West later this year in August. Sega is clearly building up considerable goodwill in the West with the Yakuza series, especially considering the extremely positive reception of the recent games. Now, with this upcoming full-fledged remake for the PS4, we will once again roam the streets of Kamurocho when Yakuza Kiwami 2 comes to our shores on August 28th.
