Yakuza 2 is getting an ‘extreme’ HD remake, too

Get a look at Yakuza Kiwami 2 in action

Sega is giving Yakuza 2, first released in 2006 on PlayStation 2, the “extreme” high definition remake treatment. Yakuza Kiwami 2, the follow up to this year’s remake of the first Yakuza, will be released in Japan on PlayStation 4 this December.

Like its predecessor, Yakuza Kiwami 2 will feature completely remade visuals of its characters and the cities of Tokyo and Osaka. The game is being developed using Sega’s Dragon Engine, the technology that powers Yakuza 6. Yakuza Kiwami 2 will also feature new scenarios, including the option to play as Goro Majima in addition to Kazuma Kiryu.

The PS4 remake will also feature new voice cast for Yakuza 2’s supporting characters and a new theme song from Japanese rock band SiM.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be released Dec. 7 in Japan. A North American and European release has not been announced. Check out the remake’s debut trailer above.

Sega will release the first Yakuza Kiwami on Aug. 29 in North America.
