Yakuza: Black Panther 2 Japanese release date confirmed

PlayStation Portable gangster romp Yakuza: Black Panther 2 will be released in its native Japan on March 22.

That’s according to the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation (via Andriasang), which notes the game will retail for 5,600 yen as a downloadable title and 6,279 yen at retail.

Black Panther 2 features a tweaked battle system that adds buddies into the mix, allowing you to brawl in the streets with a little help from a friend. The game also features destructible stages and crowd interaction; for example, someone in the audience may chuck you a weapon to use against your opponent if you’re luckly.

No western launch has been confirmed as of yet, though considering the original hasn’t even made it to the U.S. or Europe, it could be a while until we get our mitts on the game.
