Yakuza Kiwami 2, known as Ryu ga Gotoku Kiwami 2 (龍が如く極2) in Japan, is a remake of the 2006 PlayStation 2 game, Yakuza 2. It is a "sequel" to Yakuza Kiwami, which offered a similar upgrade to the original Yakuza.
In Japan the game was released as both a regular and limited edition, which came with a soundtrack CD. The United States received a regular and a steelbook version, while Europe and Australia only received the steelbook version. A limited run of "PlayStation 4 Ryu ga Gotoku Kiwami 2 Edition" consoles were sold in Japan, which didn't come with the game but had artwork from the game printed on the side. Black and white variants were available with 500GB or 1TB internal hard drives.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 offers similar upgrades to Yakuza Kiwami, essentially moving Yakuza 2 to a newer gameplay engine while improving graphics and shortening load times. It also ties in closer to Yakuza 0 as well as later games, resolving plot points that were originally left unaddressed.
Unlike Kiwami which used the engine seen in Yakuza 0 (and all previous mainline games from Yakuza 3 onwards), Kiwami 2 uses the engine originally written for Yakuza 6. As a result, signficant upgrades are offered across the board, at the expense of a PlayStation 3 conversion.
A new "Majima Saga" mode sees series anti-hero Goro Majima as a playable character, following his story between the events of Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2's main campaign.
