If you’re fan of Sega’s Yakuza series (and quite honestly, why wouldn’t you be?), then today is a good day because not only has Sega dished the dirt on the pre-order bonuses for Yakuza Kiwami 2, but they’ve also released a new trailer and a Yakuza Kiwami 2 demo for folks in the west to finally play.
Previously only available for download from the Japanese PSN store, the Yakuza Kiwami 2 demo provides a good slice of what to expect from the final game, with an evenly staisfying mixture of bone-breaking combat, mini-games and deep convos about Yakuza things. You can check out our impressions of the demo here.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 Demo, Pre-order Bonuses, Trailer
In addition to the 10.01 gigabyte playable demo, Sega has also confirmed that digital pre-orders have now gone live on the PlayStation Store, in both Europe and In the Americas. These digital pre-orders include an exclusive Yakuza: Kiwami 2 “Dragons” PlayStation 4 theme, while the special digital edition, which is available for a limited time before being pulled forever, encompasses the “Special Item Pack” bonus content, which includes the following:
- Demonfire Blade weapon
- Hostess Ono Michiyo
- Sotaro Komaki R Clan Card
- Jo Amon R Clan Card
- The Comedian Suit Outfit
- 1 Million Yen
Like Yakuza Kiwami before it, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a full fat remake of a Yakuza title that originally made its debut on the PS2 – in this case, Yakuza 2 which released back in 2008.
The big difference between Yazkua Kiwami 2 and its prequel however, is that Kiwami 2 uses the ‘Dragon Engine’; a new game engine last seen in Yakuza 6 that allows for more freeform combat and higher levels of detail.
Oh and we didn’t forget about the trailer, you can catch the Yakuza Kiwami 2 story trailer below:
Yakuza Kiwami 2 is set to release in Europe and the Americas on August 28, 2018.
