Yakuza Kiwami 2 Hits PC on May 9th

Friday, April 12th, 2019

The Dragon of Dojima’s latest outing, Yakuza Kiwami 2, is coming to PC on May 9th.

The game is a remake of the original Yakuza 2, redone in Yakuza 6’s Dragon Engine. The move to PC means unlocked framerates and 4K resolutions, a considerable leap over the console version.

Pre-ordering the PC version nets you the Clan Creator Bundle, with rare leader cards and exclusive weapons, outfits and bonus items.

It’s great to see the Yakuza series continue to make it’s mark on PC, and there’s not long to wait either. The game is £24.99 on Steam.

SEGA & Atlus announce E3 Lineup, 2 Atlus Game Reveals Due June 7th

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

SEGA and Atlus have revealed their plans for E3, including what’ll be playable on the show floor. They’ve also hinted at a few announcements.

The following games will be playable on the show floor:

  • Team Sonic Racing, the new racing title from Sumo Digital.
  • Shining Resonance Refrain, the Shining series’ return to the West after a decade and a remaster of Shining Resonance.
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest in SEGA’s beloved strategy series.
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of Yakuza 2.

In addition, Atlus will be announcing two new titles tomorrow (June 7th). Gematsu has discovered a directory on Atlus’ site that suggests these are Western releases for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, which were recently released in Japan. These titles will also be playable on the floor.

Total War: Three Kingdoms from SEGA Europe will be at E3, but won’t be playable. Atlus will also be debuting a trailer for Catherine: Full Body on the show floor, a remake of the original PS3 climbing-blocks-em-up.

SEGA will also be streaming throughout the event, across YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook. Overall, it’s looking to be a fairly packed E3 for SEGA fans! Now if only SEGA AGES were there…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Coming West, Releases August 28th 2018 for PS4

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

With Yakuza 6 on the way, and last year’s Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami still relatively fresh on our minds, SEGA has continued the Yakuza series love with the announcement that Yakuza Kiwami 2 (a remake of Yakuza 2 for PS4, in the shiny new Dragon Engine) is coming West. And you won’t be waiting long either, as it’s out on August 28th!

As the official description from SEGA eloquently puts it:

It’s been a full year since Kazuma Kiryu took his leave from the world of the Yakuza during the events of Yakuza Kiwami. Fate, however, has other things in mind for the legendary Dragon of Dojima, and Kiryu finds himself back on the front lines of a potential all-out war.

The game will also receive a steelbook edition, as has basically become tradition for the series now. It’ll be a limited edition though; time to get those pre-orders in!
