'Yakuza Kiwami 2' (ALL) Comes To Xbox One/Win10 Later This Month

by Rainier on July 14, 2020 @ 5:33 p.m. PDT

From the global development studio that introduced the world to Kazuma Kiryu, Ryu Ga Gotoku returns in high form with Yakuza Kiwami 2.

One year after the 10 billion yen incident, Kazuma Kiryu begins to build a peaceful life with Haruka Sawamura.

It's been a full year since Kazuma Kiryu took his leave from the world of the yakuza during the events of Yakuza Kiwami. Fate, however, has other things in mind for the legendary Dragon of Dojima, and Kiryu finds himself back on the front lines of a potential all-out war.

Tearing him away, an assassination threatens to erupt in an all-out war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance. Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, must travel to Sotenbori, Osaka in an attempt to broker peace between the rival clans, but Ryuji Goda, known as the Dragon of Kansai, will stop at nothing to get his war.

In this world, there can only be one dragon.

Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of the original Yakuza 2 coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 and through Xbox Game Pass on July 30, 2020.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the first Yakuza game available to Xbox One & Windows 10 players utilizing Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s powerful Dragon Engine, which features vastly improved graphics and performance, as well as seamless transitions when entering and exiting buildings or combat.

You can even take fights from the street into nearby convenience stores – just don’t expect any service if you happen to trash the store. Yakuza Kiwami 2 also features a fully playable side story featuring fan-favourite character Goro Majima, as well as a wealth of new substories and mini-games to keep you playing for countless hours.

Key Features:

  • Dragons Belong on the Dragon EngineYakuza 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. All cutscenes and key voiced lines have been re-recorded to be as true to the original as possible, while reaping the benefits of the most powerful engine the Yakuza series has ever seen.
  • Big Hits, Minigames - Kiryu hasn't let his time away from the front lines dull his skills in combat or leisure. Pull off a wide variety of brutal (and hilarious) Heat Actions, and challenge new minigames such as Golf Bingo, the original arcade release of Virtual-On, the return of Yakuza 0's much-celebrated Cabaret (including the return of fan-favorite Yuki!), Majima's revamped Clan Creator, 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.
  • Extreme Localization - We've gone through the Yakuza Kiwami 2 script with a fine-toothed comb; every effort has been made to ensure that it's the most faithful representation of the original Japanese. SEGA is committed to supporting the best Yakuza experience possible for the series' dedicated fans around the world.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is currently available on PS4, PC (Steam), coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 on July 30, 2020.
