In a product listing page that has already been pulled, the Taiwanese PlayStation Network briefly had a listing for Yakuza Kiwami 2.

You can find an image of the since-pulled listing below care of @Wario64 on twitter. The listing points to the game releasing December 7.

Yakuza Kiwami, a remake of the original Yakuza, releases on August 29. You can find our review of the game here. Presumably, Yakuza Kiwami 2 would be a comparable remake of Yakuza 2, which released for PlayStation 2 in 2006 in Japan and 2008 in North America.

Our Take
The success of Yakuza 0 has really sent Sega into a mad sprint to get as many Yakuza games into the North America market as possible. Maybe too many. There are few reasons to doubt that this game is on the way.
