SEGA has confirmed that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be released in the West.

This title is a remake of Yakuza 2 with the Dragon Engine graphics engine that Yakuza 6 uses, which will be released on April 17 (you can read our analysis here). It is especially relevant since with Yakuza 5 the saga reached a waiting peak of three years between its release in Japan and the West, but that time has been reduced in recent releases to the point that Kiwami 2 will be released just eight months later than in Japan.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is coming to the West on August 28 for Playstation 4.

Just announced, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is coming to the West! One of the most beloved storylines from the Yakuza franchise is coming on August 28th. Pre-orders for the SteelBook edition coming soon at
