For the Japanese market, Sega announced three new games at the weekend. These are “Yakuza Kiwami 2”, “Yakuza Online” and a “Fist of the North Star” game. We have a summary including the revelation videos for you.
Sega has provided several new announcements this weekend. On the one hand the “Yakuza Kiwami 2” was officially confirmed. This is a remake of “Yakuza 2“, which came on the market in 2006 (Japan) for the PlayStation 2. The launch in the West took place two years later. “Yakuza Kiwami 2” is supposed to be released in Japan and Asia on December 7th, 2017 for the PlayStation 4. How it is about a release in the West is still unclear.
“Yakuza Kiwami 2” uses the Dragon engine, which has already been used in the development of “Yakuza 6: The Song of Life”. In addition, you can adjust to updates / upgrades and additional content related to the story, sound and activities. In addition, Goro Majima will be playable in his own scenario. Below these lines you can see two videos for the announcement.
Yakuza Online announced
The second announcement is “Yakuza Online”. We are dealing with a free-to-play title, which will be financed through the usual ingame purchases. “Yakuza Online” is to come in Japan next year for PC, iOS and Android on the market. For console players, a later implementation is promised.
Also to “Yakuza Online” a trailer was put into the net, which you find in the video collection included below. To be seen in it is a new hero. This is the 40-year-old Kasuga Ichiban, embodied by Kazuhiro Nakatani. He is known for his role as Akira Nishikiyama. It is not known whether or when the title will be published in the West.
Sega confirmed Fist of the North Star game
In addition, Sega and the Yakuza studio have announced a new “Fist of the North Star” game called “Hokuto Ga Gotoku”. The title, which is based on the well-known Anime / Manga, is to come next year for the PlayStation 4 on the market. Again, this is only a confirmation for Japan.
Players can expect a story in the “Fist of the North Star” universe, which is combined with the “Yakuza” battle system. However, it is somewhat adapted to the setting of “Fist of the North Star”. On board are all sorts of minor examples, which may be familiar to the “Yakuza” fans. In the end, “Hokuto Ga Gotoku” is not a copy & paste game that is too much reminiscent of “Yakuza”. New elements are also mentioned. More information will follow at the Tokyo Game Show 2017.
