  • Taiwan PSN Leaks Yakuza 2 HD Remake

According to the store listing, Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be a remake of Yakuza 2, similar to how Yakuza Kiwami is a HD remake of the original Yakuza game. It sounds like Sega was happy with the HD remake of the first Yakuza game. Late 2018 wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration if/when Sega decides to bring it over to North America and Europe. It comes wtih the game, a three-disc Kiwami CD set, 10 special business cards featuring characters from the game, and various DLC including exclusive costumes, weapons, and Play Spot characters as well some in-game money with a million yen. The original game's voice cast will not reprise their roles, and instead be replaced by a new one.

Japanese band SiM will be working on the theme song.

There's no indication of a release date, but it's clear that with two Yakuza games in a single year, that there is a renewed push to get the brand some much-needed exposure.


The standard edition will be priced at 7,590 yen (about 70 bucks) plus taxes, but there is more.

You can check out an announcement trailer and a story trailer below courtesy of YouTube user Azazel_Irekov. Yakuza Kiwami 2 hits Japan on December 7, and a Western release has yet to be announced. Yakuza games usually take at least a year to localize, so prepare for a bit of a wait.
