Yakuza Kiwami release date confirmed for August 2017

Yakuza Kiwami will launch in North America and Europe on August 29 exclusively for PS4, Sega has announced.

The Steelbook Edition of the upcoming title is now available to pre-order for $29.99, a smaller price than we expected for a fully-fledged remaster.

A complete remake of the original Yakuza on PS2 from 2005, Kiwami will be the second game in the franchise to launch outside of Japan this year. Following in the footsteps of the fantastic Yakuza 0.
