Kazuma Kiryu is forced to return to the world of the Yakuza when his former Tojo Clan appeals for his aid in preventing a gang war between it and Osaka's Omi Family. As Kiryu, players will explore the Kamurocho, Sotenbori and Shinseicho wards based on actual locales in Tokyo and Osaka in full 3D while experiencing the main story involving both returning and new characters.

One of Sega's main goals in developing the sequel was improving the fighting system where players use both melee attacks and anything else they can get their hands on to pummel enemies using combos and QTE sequences.

Unlike the first game, the localized release of Yakuza 2 only features the original Japanese voice acting with no English dub option.
