Yakuza Kiwami 2, the remake of 2006’s Yakuza 2, will launch on Windows PC on May 9, Sega announced in the newest trailer for the open-world, underworld action-adventure.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 launched on PlayStation 4 in Japan (December 2017) and the west (August 2018) already. Steam is taking pre-orders for the $29.99 game, which will entitle buyers to all of the game’s downloadable content — including a “clan creator bundle,” exclusive weapons and outfits, and more.
The original Yakuza 2 never launched on PC (nor did the first Yakuza from 2005). Yakuza Kiwami launched on Windows PC back in February (following its 2017 launch on PlayStation 4 in the west).
We were sweet on Yakuza Kiwami 2 when it launched on PS4 in August. Our review said the game “leverages a state-of-the-art engine to present a story that holds up, with gameplay refined over a dozen years.” Our ranking of the nine Yakuza games put Yakuza 2 at No. 6 in April 2018, before it got the Kiwami (meaning “ultimate” or “extreme”) treatment.
