Yakuza Kiwami 2

One of gaming’s most famous underworld heroes returns as Yakuza Kiwami 2 makes its way to PC this year.

The adventures of Kazuma Kiryu continue as war breaks out between the Tojo Clan and Omi Alliance in their bid to see who will control Japan’s criminal organizations. When a single gunshot takes out the Fifth Chairman of the Tojo Clan, Kiryu must journey to Sotonbori, Osaka, to broker peace between the rival clans. The Dragon of Dojima is pulled back into the life he desperately wanted to leave as he faces the ambitious Ryuji Goda, the Dragon of Kansai, who will stop at nothing to get his war and prove himself the only Dragon of Japan.
