'Yakuza 2' (PS2) - 6 New Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

Set one year after the events of its predecessor, in Yakuza 2 you will face the Osaka underworld and the terrible Dragon of the West, Ryûji Kôda. Toshihiro Nagoshi and his team will greatly improve the combat system, adding more finishing and combo moves, as well as over 100 subquests and activities allowing our hero Kazuma Kiryû to play a gigolo, a club host, or spend his time playing golf and bowling.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed 3rd person action adventure Yakuza features enhanced combat, larger environments and a thrilling storyline continuing a year after Yakuza ended. Yakuza 2 will plunge players deeper into the world of Japan's notorious underground organisation, where honour and respect are not earned easily.

Yakuza 2 continues the twisting storyline one year later. Kazuma is named Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan and retires from the yakuza life the same day. The person he entrusts the future of the Tojo clan is assassinated by a former allied gang called the Omi. These events set in motion a chain of events that see Kazuma traveling back and forth between Kamuro-cho and Western Japan in a desperate effort to stave off an all-out war between the Tojo and Omi clans. Kazuma will find himself alternately dealing with the police, meeting the ladies, and punching hundreds if not thousands of people really, really hard in this fully upgraded sequel to the critically acclaimed Yakuza game.

Yakuza 2 will be available in stores throughout North America on Sept.9, 2008.
