Yakuza Kiwami 2 is almost here! With a scheduled release date of tomorrow, Aug. 28, when can you start exploring the remake of Yakuza 2 on your PS4? Right at midnight.

According to the Yakuza Kiwami 2 page on the PlayStation Store, owners can download and play the game starting at midnight EDT on Aug. 28. This means those on the West Coast will be able to play Yakuza Kiwami 2 starting at 9 p.m. PDT tonight. That's pretty awesome.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a complete recreation of Yakuza 2, rebuilt using the Yakuza 6 Dragon Engine to make everything look better than ever. Many of the classic mini games from Yakuza 2 return to Kiwami 2, along with new additions such as new arcade games and interactive urinals called Toylets. Also new to Kiwami 2 is the 'Majima Saga' that reveals events taken place before the Yakuza Kiwami 2 story.

Pre-orders are still available if you want to earn some extra gear with your purchase. The pre-order pack includes a Demonfire Blade weapon, Hostess Ono Michiyo, Sotaro Komaki R Clan Card, Jo Amon R Clan Card, The Comedian Suit Outfit, 1 Million bonus Yen and a Yakuza Kiwami 2 Dragons Theme for your PS4.

Newsweek felt that Yakuza Kiwami 2 has only very minor downsides, and an unfortunately small amount of Majima's trademark antics. Outside of these small issues, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a must-play for fans, earning a rating of 9/10.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 releases for PS4 on Aug. 28. Although not announced, expect to see a Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC port at some point in the future, as the first entry in the remade line, Yakuza Kiwami, is available on Steam right now.
