Yakuza Kiwami 2 PS4 vs PS2 Original Graphics Comparison

It seems that Yakuza series is finally getting proper reception on the West. With recent Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami releases Sega is not stopping and they just revealed Yakuza Kiwami 2 which is basically a remake of Yakuza 2 (a.k.a. Ryu Ga Gotoku 2).
So let's check what kind of improvements we can expect.

I wish to thank Tamiil for allowing me to use his Yakuza PS2 Walkthrough video in this comparison.
Please make sure to visit his channel and check what he has prepared for you guys!

It pisses me off how ridiculously good Kiwami 2 looks. Like holy shit that upgrade.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 looks more cinematic and real. The battle scenes, the music score.

So this is why I feel the animations of kiwami 2 are so bad. They literally recycle the animations from a ps2 game.
State sempre a guardare la grafica, é lo STESSO gioco con la STESSA storia ...chi l'ha già giocato, valuti bene ;)

I see no difference

I was thinking...many people will say remake is better than the original. Only because the graphics..and those stuffs
So sad.because i'm korean.

Why?New main protagonist of yakuza series voice actor says "chosenjin".that means to say korean badly on japan.

So on korea,Can will be release cancle.

SEGA has already subtitle localized and waited for release date.but that situation has happened.

SEGA apologized of that voice actor's comment.but that voice actor,not apologized still on today.

The PS3 one graphics look better than the remake.

the only thing that stops me from getting these games, is that their are no English versions, I don't like reading subtitles
