Here’s everything you need to know about Yakuza Kiwami 2.
Te Yakuza series as seen a significant surge in popularity and fan following over the course of the last year or so, a period of time in which we’ve played not one, not two, but three great Yakuza titles. Well, a fourth one is on its way as well. Yakuza Kiwami 2, the remake of the PS2 title Yakuza 2, and part of Sega’s efforts to recreate and bring to current audiences all the older Yakuza games, is almost upon us, and we’re, understandably, quite excited about it. In this feature, we’re going to take a look at the fifteen most vital pieces of information that you need to know about the game before it launches on the PS4 at the end of August.
With Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Sega made the transition to the newer, shinier Dragon Engine, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 makes use of the new engine as well. Being their first title with the new engine, there were obviously some kinks that fans of the series noted, but it was mostly a resounding success, and there’s no doubt that it’s only going to get better as the development team becomes more and more acclimatized to its workings, which, hopefully, will be the case in Kiwami 2 as well.
