The Yakuza Kiwami 2 Edition PS4 is emblazoned with cool tattoo-inspired inspired art, and will come with its own special packaging. This listing has now been removed, but the translation for the product page (which can be seen below) states that Kiwami 2 will run on the same engine as Yakuza 6. With Yakuza 6 released a year ago in Japan, a HD remake of the first game in the series coming out in the United States next week, Sega has now announced it's giving Yakuza 2 the same treatment for the PlayStation 4. Fans knew it was coming, but we didn't have any official word.

The first Yakuza Kiwami comes out on PS4 in North America and Europe this week (August 29). The most notable is "Truth of Majima Goro", in which Majima Goro is playable. With the newfound success the series has enjoyed in the west, now is the ideal time to get a new audience up to speed on everything that has happened in the earlier games. Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be titled Ryu Ga Gotoku: Kiwami 2 in Japan and will be available to the Japanese audience on December 7 of this year. There will also be a Yakuza Kiwami 2 edition of the PS4 that includes a special black or white color option for the system with a custom design that is influenced by the Yakuza series. the 500GB version will cost 33,480 and the 1TB console will be 38,480 yen.

Yakuza Kiwami, which has yet to arrive in the West, is a remake of the series' first game, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 is, naturally, a Yakuza 2 remake.
