Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC Release Revealed by ESRB Rating

Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC Release Revealed by ESRB Rating

Rated "M" for "Majima says bad words."

It seems Yakuza Kiwami 2 will bash, beat, and kick its way onto PC before very long. The ESRB recently posted ratings information for a Windows PC version of Kiwami 2 on its site. It's rated E for Everyone, of course. Just kidding. It's rated M for Mature.

You can have a look at the rating for yourself, which has a content warning list that's the size of a small novella. The summary lists " Blood, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol." As for the nitty-gritty, my favourites include "[P]layers are rewarded for drinking in the form of experience points," and "The words 'f**k,' 'sh*t,' and 'a*shole' appear in the dialogue." I have no idea what those bad words are. I promise I'm utterly stumped.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of 2007's Yakuza 2 for the PlayStation 2. It came to the PlayStation 4 in North America last August. Caty enjoys the game quite a bit, and Hirun praises it as a top-notch remake of an already-great game. "If you-like me-have loved revisiting the history of Yakuza in a post-Yakuza 6 world, then you're in for a treat with Yakuza Kiwami 2," he says. "Simply put, it's the city of Kamurocho that has always entertained us, partnered with our leading man Kiryu Kazuma that we've always loved, all in glorious detail with the Dragon Engine."

Yakuza Kiwami is already on PC, and Sega is generally making a point to put its games on PC at a brisk pace. A Yakuza Kiwami 2 port seems inevitable. We'll tell you all about it if we get an official release date.
