Today Sega made the demo of the upcoming Yakuza 2 full remake Yakuza Kiwami 2 available on the Japanese PlayStation Store.
The demo weighs a whopping 9.89 gigabytes and can be downloaded here, allowing players to take a glimpse at part of the upcoming game. Of course, it’s in Japanese, buy if you’re familiar with Yakuza games you shouldn’t have any particular trouble playing through it. Just remember that X and Circle are inverted compared to western standards. You confirm with circle in menus and cancel with X.
In order to download and play the demo, you’ll also need a Japanese PSN account. If you don’t know how to make one, you can find out how to, alongside with a few housekeeping tips, in our dedicated article.
