SEGA has launched a Yakuza Kiwami 2 demo on the Japanese PlayStation Store today, offering a taste of what to expect from the PlayStation 4 revamp of the 2006 action-RPG.
Unfortunately, it’s currently unknown if the Yakuza 2 remake will find its way to western shores. However, given that the original Yakuza Kiwami saw a U.S. and European release earlier this year, there’s a good chance we’ll see the sequel get the localisation treatment.
Still, the demo is available to download regardless of where you reside, so head on over to the PS Store now to grab it. The file weighs in at 9.89GB.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a full-blown remake of the original PlayStation 2 game, and runs on the Dragon game engine used for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. The game is currently scheduled for release in Japan on December 7, 2017 exclusively for the PS4.
Set in an open-world featuring the Japanese districts of Tokyo, Kamurocho, Osaka, and Sotenbori, Yakuza Kiwami 2 features the core plot of the original game, but includes additional story sequences to help tie the previous games together.
Being a remake, it also takes advantage of the more recent Yakuza gameplay mechanics, bringing the title up to modern standards.
Yakuza 6 is due for release in the west in March 2018.
