It's still extreme.
Yakuza Kiwami 2

Kiwami means extreme and there is nothing more extreme than Yakuza Kiwami 2. Trust me, I'm kind of an authority on this. I am happy to pass along word that even more people will get to experience the story and over the top action that is Yakuza Kiwami 2 come July 30, 2020. This is when Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be released on the Xbox One and hit the Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox One and Windows 10.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 brings the action to the Dragon Engine for the first time on the Xbox One. It is the original game completely rebuilt on this new engine. It features improved visuals and performance compared to the older engine that was being used. There are now seamless transitions when entering and exiting buildings, a big plus for this engine when compared to the older one.

As with the other games, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is full of side quests and mini-games in addition to the main story. Plus, you get a special Majima focused campaign.

If you do not want to wait for the Windows 10 Store release, you can always pick it up right now through Steam. Of course, if you have Game Pass, you may as well hold out for the next two weeks until it's released through Game Pass.

As of the time of this posting, there have been no announcements about Yakuzas 3 through 6 showing up on the PC or Xbox One. Thus far, only Yakuza: Like a Dragon, or Yakuza 7 if you prefer, has been confirmed for a multi-platform release later this year. Unless there is something that we are unaware of, I would still be utterly shocked if we do not see the other games appear on the PC and Xbox at some point.

It's been a full year since the legendary Dragon of Dojima, 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 thehim, and Kiryu finds himself back on the front lines of a potential all-out war between the two most formidable yakuza organizations, as SEGA proudly presents Yakuza Kiwami 2, one of the most beloved storylines in the franchise's history, remade in full HD.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the first Yakuza game available to Xbox One & Windows 10 players utilizing Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio's powerful Dragon Engine, which features vastly improved graphics and performance, as well as seamless transitions when entering and exiting buildings or combat. You can even take fights from the street into nearby convenience stores - just don't expect any service if you happen to trash the store. Yakuza Kiwami 2 also features a full playable side story featuring fan-favorite character Goro Majima, as well as a wealth of new substories and mini games to keep you playing for countless hours.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Features:
  • Dragons Belong on the Dragon Engine - Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a re-creation of the original Yakuza 2, completely rebuilt in the Dragon Engine, the same engine used in developing Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Experience gorgeous graphics on top of seamless transitions between battles or when entering or leaving buildings. Character facial animations have undergone a significant overhaul, and all cutscenes and key voiced lines have been re-recorded to enhance the exhilarating drama that unfolds throughout the game.
  • Big Hits, Mini Games - Experience visceral street brawling and weapon-based combat, and tons of leisure activities in Kamurocho (Tokyo) and Sotenbori (Osaka), Pull off a wide variety of brutal (and hilarious) Heat Actions, and challenge new minigames such as Golf Bingo, the original arcade release of Virtua Fighter 2, the return of Yakuza 0's much-celebrated Cabaret (including the return of fan-favorite Yuki!), Majima Construction-themed Clan Creator and real-time strategy game, and even SEGA's infamous Toylets!
  • Unveil the Truth of Goro Majima - This time around, Kiryu isn't the only one running the show - fans of the Mad Dog of Shimano won't want to miss this new Majima-centric campaign, which features Majima as a playable character, complete with his trusty dagger, and sheds light on his personal journey from the end of Yakuza Kiwami up to Yakuza Kiwami 2.
