A Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC port feels inevitable at this point. Sega has been making good on its promise to better support the PC, bringing some heavy hitters over to the platform. Recently, the company ported the wonderful and wacky Yakuza Kiwami to the PC, following the successful release of Yakuza 0. Spoiler: we loved them both. And now, we believe that Sega might be teasing the upcoming release of Yakuza Kiwami 2.
It isn’t much to go on at the moment, however. Sega changed its icon on its Steam publisher page to that of the eye patch worn by series comedy relief character Goro Majima. The company’s logo is even slapped on for additional effort. Sega has provided these silly little teasers for its games before. For example, an 8-bit version of Bayonetta was dropped as an April Fool’s joke before a Steam version was announced.
There is more evidence pointing to Kiwami 2‘s upcoming PC announcement. Not long ago, the ESRB created a rating page for Yakuza Kiwami 2 on PC.
And That’s Not All
The tease follows revelations last August that Sega was planning on bringing even more Yakuza to the PC. According to a Sega financial report, the company is planning on releasing Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life for the PC with a possible 2019 launch window. It’s all good news for Yakuza fans.
Yakuza Kiwami is the most recent game in the series to hit the PC. I happened to write a few words or so on the game, giving it a 4/5 rating in the process. In short, the title was great. But it was also an excellent port, bringing multiple graphics options ranging from textures to resolution. If Yakuza Kiwami 2 also heads to the PC, you can bet I’ll be there waiting. Like Majima in a trash can.
