The remake will utilize the Dragon Engine, used in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, and it’ll come with an additional Truth of Goro Majima scenario where you’ll be able to take up the mantle of the unhinged Goro Majima.
There’s a whole wealth of new content as well, in addition to new voice actors and the Japanese metal band SiM taking on the theme song.
There’s also a limited edition bundle in Japan, which will come with a 3-disc “Kiwami” CD set, business cards, DLC, and the game of course, as well as special packaging.
Even cooler is the special Yakuza: Kiwami 2 Edition PlayStation 4, which is available atlaunch in both Jet Black and Glacier White colors.
Right now there’s no official word on an English localization, but hopefully it comes to pass with the success of the Yakuza series.
