Sega has announced that a Yakuza Kiwami 2 demo is now available to take for a spin on the PlayStation Store.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a full-blown remake of 2006's PlayStation 2 sequel, and features a massive visual overhaul and brand new chapter following anti-hero Goro 'I think I'm Albert Wesker 'cos I wear sunglasses inside' Majima.

In an effort to further modernise the game, Yakuza Kiwami 2's combat system doffs its cap to the mechanics seen in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, which is no bad thing.

Pre-orders are now live for the digital version of the curb-stomping gangster-'em-up, which nets you a free Yakuza Kiwami 2 Dragons theme. The special digital edition meanwhile will include a Special Item Pack that includes the following items:

-Demonfire Blade weapon

-Hostess Ono Michiyo

-Sotaro Komaki R Clan Card

-Jo Amon R Clan Card

-The Comedian Suit Outfit

-1 Million Yen

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 on August 28.
