What you need to know

  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a popular action-adventure game from Sega.
  • Many months ago, Microsoft announced that the Yakuza games were coming to Xbox Game Pass.
  • Recently, the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account teased the title.
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 is coming to the service on July 30.

Many months ago, Microsoft announced that many Yakuza games were coming to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC. Right now, only Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami are available. However, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is joining the service on July 30. Yesterday, the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account just said "Yakuza Kiwami 2." The account is known for its cheeky humor so this was a tease of its arrival on the service.

July 30 is a Thursday so it's a somewhat unorthodox release date, but we'll take it! Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the best in the series in my opinion.
