The original Yakuza is receiving a PS4 remake next week and it looks like Yakuza 2 will receive a similar treatment.
Originally released on PS2 in 2006 (in Japan anyway. It didn't arrive west until 2008), Yakuza 2 received much critical acclaim. Unlike the first Yakuza, which received an english dub in the west, Yakuza 2 preserved the series' Japanese flavour, opting to subtitle the crime drama while retaining its original voice acting.
In fact, the Taiwanese PSN listing noted that Kiwami 2 will use the Dragon Engine, which is making its debut in Yakuza 6, slated for a western release on 20th March. Digital Foundry's John Linneman found the Japanese version of Yakuza 6 to be a notably more impressive technical achievement than that of its predecessors.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 was listed as launching 7th December, though one expects it could take several months for it to receive a western localisation.
