The news about Sega’s plan to launch Yakuza Kiwami 2’s computer version on steam has already been known because the rumor is circulating on the gaming community for quite a time now. After all, the gangster film’s been evaluated by MSRP for PC.

Now, there’s another hint that the game will have a PC port: the game’s official account on Steam has changed its logo.

The new avatar of the account is now an eyepatch, and it is the one worn by Goro Majima, the side-star of the series. This clue made the fans of the game excited.

Such hints are important for fans. Sega is providing such signals on what to come on their games for years already. It’s a tradition, which fans love.

In fact, it’s not only Sega, because there are a lot of companies that give golden eggs from time to time, and it’s an effective marketing campaign. Several years ago, Sega has launched Bayonetta’s 8-bit version as a teaser that the game is already complete and it will be launched soon.

Now, Sega has advertised Yakuza Kiwami 2 by using the eyepatch of Majimi. Some fans went berserk once they’ve seen the new avatar on Steam. It’s really cool because Sega’s logo is inscribed on the eyepatch. Fans know what’s coming on Yakuza Kiwami 2.

There’s a whole new plight in the sequel because fans can go to Majima’s truth once they finish the main game’s 6th chapter. Players can access it through the title’s main menu.

It is entirely different from the campaign of Kazuma Kiryu. Kiryu will help the construction company of Majima in this game’s version. Once gamers reached the game’s 5th chapter, they have access to the mini-game.

The worldwide release on Steam of the first Yakuza Kiwami game is just recent.

It’s been launched last February 19, and it’s a successful title so the game’s developer has immediately launched its sequel, which can be played on PS4. However, the game’s been released in Japan on January 2016.

Players just need to play Yakuza Kiwami once, and they’ll be hooked. The narrative will most likely enthrall even those who are just new at the game’s storyline or niche.

Kazuma Kiryu is the game’s protagonist, and players need to guide him as he explores a fictional Tokyo district known as Kamurocho.

The streets are based on the authentic district of Kabukicho.  Besides the main storyline, gamers will encounter opponents on the streets. They’ll also meet characters who’ll offer side quests, which will help Kiryu complete rewards.

Sega loves to hype its PC reissues, and fans love the gimmick.
