The developers of the Yakuza series, Sega, is having a pretty good run this year as it's set to release the latest installment of the game Yakuza 6, next month.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 was released in Japan on December 7, 2017, marking what might be the quickest localization turnaround of any game in this series yet.

Today during an event at the Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California, Sega announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 is coming west. But graphics are not the only thing getting touched up, Kiwami 2 also features re-recorded dialogue and cut-scenes, while staying as true to the original game as possible. The game will be in the new Dragon Engine that powers Yakuza 6 and will include all the original Heat Actions of the original Yakuza 2. The game will further explore what Goro Majima got up to after leaving the Tojo Clan and catch up with those close to him in his life, including an unexpected return of a major character from Yakuza 0. The game will be releasing both physically and digitally on the PlayStation 4 on August 28, 2018 for $49.99.
