Features:

 

  • Dragons Belong on the Dragon Engine - Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a re-creation of the original Yakuza 2, completely rebuilt in the Dragon Engine, the same engine used in developing Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Experience gorgeous graphics on top of seamless transitions between battles or when entering or leaving buildings. Character facial animations have undergone a significant overhaul, and all cutscenes and key voiced lines have been re-recorded to enhance the exhilarating drama that unfolds throughout the game.
  • Big Hits, Mini Games - Experience visceral street brawling and weapon-based combat, and tons of leisure activities in Kamurocho (Tokyo) and Sotenbori (Osaka), Pull off a wide variety of brutal (and hilarious) Heat Actions, and challenge new minigames such as Golf Bingo, the original arcade release of Virtua Fighter 2, the return of Yakuza 0's much-celebrated Cabaret (including the return of fan-favorite Yuki!), Majima Construction-themed Clan Creator and real-time strategy game, and even SEGA's infamous Toylets!
  • Unveil the Truth of Goro Majima - This time around, Kiryu isn't the only one running the show - fans of the Mad Dog of Shimano won't want to miss this new Majima-centric campaign, which features Majima as a playable character, complete with his trusty dagger, and sheds light on his personal journey from the end of Yakuza Kiwami up to Yakuza Kiwami 2.
