Special edition PlayStation 4

Gamespot said that a remake of the original "Kiwami 2" will be released later this year, and it will include some limited edition versions that the company will offer during the launch. Sega announced that there would be a remake released as well of a new "Fist of the North Star" title as well as the website Yakuza Online.

The PS4 release of "Yakuza Kiwami 2" will include new scenarios, stories, and some new playable characters too. The original voice cast won't reprise their roles for the voice work. This news means that it will have a new voice cast for the video game. The Japanese band SIM will provide the theme music. The limited edition consists of a three-CD Kiwami set that includes the video game's soundtrack, two CDS based on Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro, 10 character business cards, and downloadable content that includes new costumes, weapons, characters, and one million in yen that gamers can spend in the game.

Metro UK reported that the "Yakuza Kiwami 2" game is the second game to be released on the PlayStation Store. Although the video game will go on sale on December 7 in Japan, those in the West may not see the new game for some time.

The remake will include a higher resolution, better frame rate, improved textures, and faster load times. Players can expect a new playable scenario for Majima, a construction worker and Makoto may make an appearance too. It is unclear when Makoto will appear, but it won't be in the initial release.

What's next for the makers of the Yakuza series

Comic Book reported that many games produced by the Japanese are often based on anime. Many of them aren't considered to be that good. The team that created the Yakuza games is back to build a game for "Fist of the North Star." The game is expected to offer over-the-top bloody brawling, exploding heads, and wacky extras. One example is being able to play against the bartender. The game itself takes place in a post apocalyptic world full of muscle bound men and martial artists. The main character of the series is Kenshiro, a character that has the ability to make opponents explode after hitting the opponent's secret pressure points. "Fist of the North" will be released in 2018 for Japanese players. No word has been given as to when Western audiences can expect the game to be available. With the release of PlayStation 4.5, players may also purchase PS One classic games.
