It will be released this year on August 28, and it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 finally has a release date for PS4. Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the second game in the series and had been previously released in Japan.

The game will release physically and digitally in North America and Europe for $49.99, and the first run of copies will include a steelbook featuring an illustration of Kazuma Kiryu and antagonist Ryuji Goda. For those who might not have been keeping up with all of these releases, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is basically a remake of Yakuza 2, similar to how Yakuza Kiwami was a remake of Yakuza 1.

On a related note, the next game in the Yakuza franchise, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, launches on PlayStation 4 this coming April. But graphics are not the only thing getting touched up, Kiwami 2 also features re-recorded dialogue and cut-scenes, while staying as true to the original game as possible. The Yakuza games have usually revolved around a central cast of characters, with some of the games having multiple playable protagonists.
