Yeah, we’re getting Yakuza 2

If the retail rumors and spontaneously released trailer by Sega USA weren’t enough indicators that Yakuza 2 will be released in North America, the ESRB just rated the game M for Mature. Sometime this year PlayStation 2 owners will step into the world of organized crime (again), which includes content like “blood”, “sexual themes”, “use of alcohol” and “violence” as stated by the ESRB. Sega still hasn’t announced a date for Europe or North America, but some retail outlets have it scheduled in September.


We still don’t know what Sega plans to do about the voice acting either. The teaser trailer below doesn’t give any clues either since it’s a montage of cutscenes with music on top. I'm still hoping for the original voice acting with subtitles as an option.

    That’s great news, and I definitely wish for Jpn audio for a “Yakuza” game.

  • ShinRekka

    I love the first one but never thought the sequel would come over since the first didn’t sell so good over here. Really nice to know that it is pretty much confirmed to come!

  • I hope they include the movie with it. (I’ve heard it isn’t very good, but usually most of his movies are worth watching at least once)

  • We’ve been waiting for this game for years and they keep pissing us off by pushing back the release date. The first “Yakuza” was one of the best games to ever debut on the PS2.
