A remake of the second Yakuza game, titled Ryū ga Gotoku: Kiwami 2 (龍が如く極, lit. "Like a Dragon:Extreme 2") It released in Japan on December 07, 2017, and was released worldwide on August 28, 2018. The game uses the Dragon Engine that was used for Yakuza 6. It is developed by Sega for the PlayStation 4. The game follows the main character Kazuma Kiryu and adds Goro Majima as a playable character in a side quest named a new Truth of Majima Goro scenario.
Taking place a year on from the first game, Yakuza Kiwami 2 once again puts the player in the shoes of Kazuma Kiryu. The Dragon of Dojima, as expected, finds himself in yet another precarious situation involving the Japanese mafia.
Since the passing of Akira Nishikiyama in the first installment, the Tojo Clan has been slowly falling apart, internal power struggles running riot. This inevitably leads to conflict with Osaka’s Omi Alliance, which happens to be backing the late Nishikiyama.
The Truth of Goro Majima Edit
A new feature for the Kiwami 2. Taking place on February 2006, Tojo Clan's Fifth Chairman Yukio Terada announced that he's going to recruit new blood to rebuild the Tojo Clan after the 10 billion yen incident.
The scene opens at Tojo Clan's HQ. A heated argument ensues between the Clan's patriarch over their refusal to do shady business practices.
In order to fill the vacant position of Clan captain, Terada ruled that the one who has the most financial contribution will be appointed as the Captain. Two people are gunning for the position: Akinobu Uematsu and Goro Majima.
Structurally, Yakuza Kiwami 2 still follows the action-adventure game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. Plot-wise, it follows the same plot of Yakuza 2, with added features and enhanced gameplay structures thanks to the Dragon Engine, such as revised combat mechanism and the return of Clan Creator mini-game.
