Sega of America has launched the demo for Yakuza Kiwami 2 on the PlayStation 4. The full game is set to launch on August 28th. It’s time to revisit Sotenbori and check out a number of mini games like darts and karaoke in the demo. In addition to the demo being out now, the press release says that digital preorders are also now available to purchase. If you buy the special digital edition, you get the Special Item Pack along with it, which contains:
- Demonfire Blade weapon
- Hostess Ono Michiyo
- Sotaro Komaki R Clan Card
- Jo Amon R Clan Card
- The Comedian Suit Outfit
- 1 Million Yen
Preorders and first-run copies of Yakuza Kiwami 2 will include an elaborate steelbook case.
In Yakuza Kiwami 2, about a year has passed since the 10 billion yen incident. Kazuma Kiryu has begun to make a peaceful life with Haruka Sawamura when an assassination attempt tears him away. It threatens to ignite a vicious war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance. Kiryu (the Dragon of Dojima) must travel and try to broker peace, but of course things will not be that easy!
You can find out more about the game at its website. However, at the time of this writing (7/6/2018 5:25pm), the website seems to be a bit broken, as it insists on reloading itself every two seconds (in more than one browser). You can still go to their experience page, though. On that page you can check out the story information in the form of a digital, 10-part, interactive comic series. There are also comprehensive character maps and timelines as well.
