New Yakuza Kiwami 2 Trailer Shows the Most Badass Heroine of the Series (and Forbidden Romance)

Sega released a brand new trailer of Yakuza Kiwami 2, and it's all about my first video game love Kaoru Sayama. Don't judge me.

July 26, 2018

If there is one female character who will forever hold a special place in the hearts of the fans of the Yakuza series, it’s probably Kaoru Sayama, detective of the Osaka Police Department from Yakuza 2.

One of the most delightful elements of Yakuza Kiwami 2 is that she is back, in her brand new (but recognizable) look thanks to the Dragon Engine. 

Kaoru is extremely likable because she is strong and really badass, be she isn’t afraid to show vulnerabilities and a remarkably cute side, as three-dimensional characters should be.

Today Sega released a brand new trailer, and it’s all about her and her relationship with protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Honestly, it brought a smile to my face.


You can check it out below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the E3 trailer and the extended version of the original announcement trailer. You can also take a look at an extensive gameplay clip in English.

Last, but not least, you should not forget to check out the demo already available on the PlayStation Store.

The game will release in North America and Europe on August 28th, exclusively for PS4. You can already pre-order Yakuza Kiwami 2 on Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
