Today Sega released a batch of new screenshots of its upcoming Yakuza 2 remake Yakuza Kiwami 2.
The screenshots feature the new look of the fictional Sotenbori district in Osaka, which is a reproduction of the real world Dotonbori area. It has been completely rebuilt with Yakuza 6‘s “Dragon Engine” and it looks awesome.
We see the hostess club Four Shine, the golf center, various real restaurants and eateries that actually exist in Dotonbori, the iconic Ebisu Bridge, the inevitable Don Quixote store and more.
The images also showcase two quests. In the first, protagonist Kazuma Kiryu is scouted as a model, while in the second Kiryu gets involved in the the conflict between a rather energetic middle-aged lady and a shopkeeper who suspects her of shoplifting.
You can enjoy the screenshots below. If you want to see more you can enjoy another batch of screenshots showing the game’s hostesses and gangsters, a recent set of trailers dedicated to story and gameplay, and more videos on the actors, one featuring the main cast, and a second featuring additional characters. One last video features more charming ladies for the Gravure Model minigame that incidentally happens in Sotenbori itself.
Yakiza Kiwami 2 is coming to Japan exclusively for PS4 on December 7th, 2017. No western release has been announced, for the moment.
