PS4 Exclusive Yakuza Kiwami 2 Gets New Gameplay Showing Osaka and Gravure Minigame

Sega showcases a new batch of Yakuza Kiwami 2 gameplay, showing Osaka and a rather interesting gravure photography minigame.

September 24, 2017

Today Sega hosted a stage presentation at Tokyo Game Show, showcasing some new gameplay of the upcoming Yakuza 2 remake Yakuza Kiwami 2.

The gameplay starts rather mild, with Kazuma Kiryu exploring the fictional district of Sotonbori in Osaka (it’s actually not that “fictional,” since it’s basically a reproduction of the real Dotonbori district), showcasing quite a few well known establishments from both the real world and the world of the game, like the Don Quixote store and the Grand cabaret club that Yakuza 0 veterans know very well.

After a quick fight, things get heated, as ol’ Kazuma gets to experience a brand new minigame. Basically, the player is prompted to form the right sentences, and they will be rewarded by the model showing off some rather sexy poses. It’s pretty much Yakuza Kiwami 20s equivalent of Yakuza 6‘s “Live Chat,” and while it’s pretty safe for work, you probably shouldn’t watch it in front of a strict boss.


You can check it out below, and if you want to see more, you can enjoy a recent trailer, another featuring the main cast, one showcasing some more charactersthe first trailer, and some screenshots.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 will launch in Japan on December 7th, exclusively for PS4. No western release has been announced, for the moment.
