Game company SEGA has announced that video game Yakuza Kiwami 2 is now available on Xbox One, Windows 10, and Xbox Game Pass.
This will be the first Yakuza game to launch on Xbox One and Windows 10 that will utilize the Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s powerful Dragon Engine. It features vastly improved visuals and performance, as well as seamless transitions when entering and exiting buildings or combat. This version will also feature the full playable side story of fan-favorite character Goro Majima.
About the game:
Set one year after the thrilling events of the original story, the Dragon of Dojima, Kazuma Kiryu, is finally starting to settle down and build a peaceful life with Haruka Sawamura. However, he soon learns an assassination threatens to erupt an all-out war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance.
