Sega has released a playable demo for the upcoming Yakuza Kiwami 2. The demo is currently available on the PlayStation Store, with a size of 10.01 GB.
"One year after the 10 billion yen incident, Kazuma Kiryu begins to build a peaceful life with Haruka Sawamura. 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," says the PlayStation Store synopsis for the game.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of Yakuza 2, originally released on PlayStation 2 back in 2006. The game came to the United States two years later. Kiwami 2 uses the all-new Dragon Engine, which debuted in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Many of the mini-games from previous Yakuza titles return and fan-favorite character Goro Majima will have his own Majima Saga.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be launching on PlayStation 4 on August 28, 2018. We're currently in the middle of a Yakuza zeitgeist, with a new Yakuza Studio game always around the corner. Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami are both coming to PC, with the former title launching on August 1 for a cool $19.99. Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, another game by the Yakuza team, is also heading West on October 2, 2018.
