Yakuza: Black Panther Sequel Looks A Lot Like Yakuza: Black Panther

Our first glimpse of Kurohyou 2 Ryu ga Gotoku (or Yakuza: Black Panther 2) is a familiar affair, as it looks almost identical to the original Black Panther

That title sucked a lot of life out of our PSP so we're naturally excited about the sequel. But without the promise of a localisation, we'll try to keep our anticipating in check. Andriasang's got more shots through here.
