FINALE/ENDING:

 

 

 

 

 

Amon Battle Bouncer Mission : LEGEND difficulty

 

 

 

You are about to embark on what is probably the HARDEST BOSS FIGHT in Ryu ga Gotoku history. It is recommended that you acquire ALL of Kiryu's abilities in your main playthrough, complete the game, start a Premium Adventure and purchase all the special end-bonus weapons from Kamiyama. Equip Kiryu with the 'Protection of The Dragon' armor set pieces and spam the Golden Pistol. Be cheap because the Amon Bros are the definition of cheap.

So if you play on Hard, you cannot unluck Legend? Seems weird.

 

If you complete the game on any difficulty it will unlock Legend.

Game design difference. When you get to Chapter 4 in the original Yakuza 2, there are certain aspects of this chapter where you'll have to 'think outside the box' especially when you have to talk to the Mahjong Informant. Remember, always talk to Kurokawa (the purple suited thug that kisses up to Kiryu) so you won't have to pay a dime to the Informant when he asks for 300 grand :

Tip: Visit the acupuncture clinic in Soutenbori to gain skills Kiryu learned from Kiwami 1. You'll need to frequently visit the clinic from time to time upon completing substories.

Minor game design difference:

 

 

 

 

When Kiryu and Sayama enter the Millennium Tower to meet with The Florist of Sai, there is a cutscene in the original Yakuza 2 that was removed in Kiwami 2.

Game design difference:

 

 

 

In Chapter 10, Kiryu, Sayama and Date have a discussion about Bessho and Kawara. In the original Yakuza 2, the cutscene takes place at the docks where Kiryu fought against the Shimano Family where he learned the truth about his parents. In Kiwami 2, the cutscene takes place at the rooftops right above Serena.

Scenario difference:

During the sweet montage where Kiryu and Sayama spend some quality time together in Soutenbori, there's a segment in the original Yakuza 2 that's missing in Kiwami 2. In the original, Kiryu and Sayama are at the pachislots. Kiryu loses his chance at the slot machines but Sayama gets all Lucky 7's. This scene is missing in Kiwami 2.

I've been told that the US/EU versions of Kiwami 2 have adjusted the LEGENDS difficulty. I wouldn't know since I only own the Japanese version of the game.
