Gone are the days when you had to rely on Sony to localise Yakuza games, as SEGA has announced that Yakuza: Kiwami 2 will brawl to Western shores from 28th August. Announced on an official stream earlier this evening, the title is a full remake of PlayStation 2 instalment Yakuza 2, built using the brand new Yakuza 6: The Song of Life engine.

There’s an announcement trailer embedded above. Good news, eh, guys?

Update: As with Yakuza: Kiwami and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, there'll be a steelbook edition available to those of you who pre-order. We've included an image of that above. You can learn more about the game on the title's official website.
