Now Yakuza 2 Is Getting A HD Remake

Share

As can be expected from a remake, Sega will be re-recording audio for Yakuza Kiwami 2 as well as introducing a lot of other upgrades and enhancements to make the game a proper HD remake of the original 2006 release of Yakuza 2. There will also be a limited edition priced at 11,590 yen. This listing has now been removed, but the translation for the product page (which can be seen below) states that Kiwami 2 will run on the same engine as Yakuza 6.

In Yakuza 2 players take control of former yakuza member Kazuma Kiryu as he gets tangled in a risky clash between gang families. A North American and European release has not been announced.

The CD set consists of the Kazuma Kiryu Famous "Kiwami" CD, Majima Goro Famous "Kiwami" CD, and Yakuza: Kiwami & Yakuza: Kiwami 2 soundtrack.

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.

Kaepernick, who once took the 49ers to the Super Bowl , opted out of his contract with the team in March and remains unsigned. It led to the coaching staff benching him in favor of Blaine Gabbert , now the likely backup to Carson Palmer in Arizona.

There's no indication of a release date, but it's clear that with two Yakuza games in a single year, that there is a renewed push to get the brand some much-needed exposure.

2017 has been kind to Yakuza fans, beginning earlier this year with Yakuza 0 and continuing next week with the HD Remake of the original game, Yakuza Kiwami.
