Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on the recently-announced Yakuza Kiwami 2, by Sega.

The article focused on showing images of the member of the game’s large cast in their new looks rendered by Yakuza 6‘s Dragon Engine.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the full remake of the old and glorious Yakuza 2 released in 2006 in Japan and in 2008 in the west. It  picks up shortly after the end of Yakuza (and Yakuza Kiwami, of course), sending Kazuma Kiryu all the way to Osaka to face the powerful Omi Alliance.

Yakuza 2 is, in fact, the first game of the series to include two main locations (Tokyo and Osaka). Considering the addition of Goro Majima as a playable character, this game will probably be much bigger than Yakuza Kiwami.

You can check out all the screenshots below, but do keep in mind that they’re from magazine scans, so the quality is not perfect. You can also watch the first trailer, and the first batch of direct feed screenshots.

Yakuza Kiwami 2  will launch in Japan on December 7th, exclusively for PS4.

On top of Yakuza Kiwami 2, Sega also revealed the future of the Yakuza series (split in two games, Yakuza Online and Shin Yakuza), and Hokuto Ga Gotoku, based on the Fist of the North Star manga and anime series.
