Sega has announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will get a PC release on Thursday 9th May.
For those that are unaware, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the 2008 PlayStation 2 game Yakuza 2 that uses the Dragon Engine. Yakuza Kiwami 2 first released for the PS4 in Japan in 2017 before making its way to these shores in August 2018, but the PC release will mark the first time that the game has been available on any platform other than a Sony console. The story follows series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu as he is forced back into action following the assassination of Yukio Terada, the Fifth Chairman of the Tojo Clan.
You can check out the trailer for the PC release in the tweet below. It features a very Japanese man apparently using the word “ain’t” (translated through subtitles), which I’m not sure is a literal translation.
