Eagerly anticipated Yakuza 2 to be released in '08

Yakuza 2 Coming to PS2 in North America
This is great news! Even though my life is nothing like a mob paperback novel, the original Yakuza game (2006), dark and all "neon-y" in it's setting, really made me nostalgic for getting lost on the metro. Did not think this game would get released over here. So while you're killing time for the next installment of Tenchu, you should check out Yakuza.


Remarkably, there are still Playstation 2 titles still in development that are slated for release in 2008: Yakuza 2 is one of them. Yakuza 2 continues the twisting storyline one year after the Yakuza storyline where Kazuma is named Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan and retires from the yakuza life the same day. The person he entrusts the future of the Tojo clan is assassinated by a former allied gang called the Omi. These events set in motion a chain of events that see Kazuma traveling back and forth between Kamuro-cho and Western Japan in a desperate effort to stave off an all-out war between the Tojo and Omi clans. Players will find themselves alternately dealing with the police, meeting the ladies, and punching hundreds if not thousands of enemies in this fully upgraded sequel.
Yakuza 2 is slated to be released for the Playstation 2 in 2008.
