Yakuza: Kiwami 2 for PS4 announcement leaked

Great, it's probably worthwhile to do HD port of Yakuza 3 & 4 as well?

Yakuza: Kiwami 2 for PS4 announcement leaked -- Yakuza 2 remade in the latest iteration of the Dragon Engine.


The Taiwanese PlayStation Store has leaked the announcement of Yakuza: Kiwami 2 for PlayStation 4 ahead of Sega’s Yakuza Studio New Titles Presentation on August 26.

According to the listing, the game, which is a remake of Yakuza 2, is built in the latest iteration of the Dragon Engine, which is used in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, and will launch in Taiwan on December 7.

Further details are expected to be announced on August 26.

The first Yakuza: Kiwami launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on January 21, 2016, and will launch for PlayStation 4 in the Americas and Europe on August 29.

I'm surprised because Yakuza 2 is quite honestly a filler game. The story isn't very interesting.

But it had the club hostess with huge breasts and also you get to beat the crap out of a tiger. Just those two reasons merit a full remake.

Still hoping (naively might add) that they come up and announce the rumored hd remasters of shenmue from years ago.

There's a rumor that the game will be back with dual story line between Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, just like Yakuza 0, and the plot for Majima is brand new.

So the story of Kiryu never ends, not until they finish remaking Yakuza 3 & 4.

You're not gonna get remakes of PS3 games this gen. You may get remasters though.
