Sega Europe’s Marketing Director, Gary Knight said, “We are thrilled to treat the gamers to the sequel of the critically acclaimed Yakuza. Yakuza 2 is one of the most requested Japanese titles in our portfolio and we’re delighted to finally announce a European and Australian version.”

According to Sega, this 3rd person action adventure game will feature enhanced combat, larger environments and a thrilling storyline continuing a year after Yakuza ended. Yakuza 2 will plunge players deeper into the world of Japan’s notorious underground organisation, where honour and respect are not earned easily.

Here’s a short synopsis of Yakuza 2:
Kazuma Kiryu, the protagonist of the first Yakuza, is named Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan but unexpectedly retires from life in the clan the same day. However, his personally chosen successor is assassinated by a former allied gang called the Omi. These events set in motion an engrossing storyline that sees Kazuma travelling through Japan, on what could be the last opportunity to stave off an all-out war between the Tojo and Omi clans.

Yakuza 2 will be available in 2008 exclusively for PlayStation 2.
