Here’s a bunch of info about New Nightlife Island:
The Goal: To Become the No. 1 Cabaret Club in Japan
The immensly popular “Nightlife Island” play spot that debuted in Yakuza 0 finally returns in Yakuza: Kiwami 2. While keeping the fun of the original, “New Nightlife Island” adds many new elements and features, is even easier to play, and has even more exciting content. Many of the characters that appeared in Yakuza 0, including the heroine Yuki, will appear again. The setting is the “Cabaret Club Grand Prix,” a competition to decide the number one cabaret club in the country, where you can enjoy grand-scale “Cabaret Club Business Battles.”
Cabaret Grand Prix
The setting of New Nightlife Island is the “Cabaret Club Grand Prix,” where veteran cabaret clubs from around the country gather and compete to determine the number one cabaret club. Cabaret clubs from not only Sotenbori, but from all over the country, will become your rivals.
The Cabaret Club Grand Prix consists of four leagues—the “Fresh League,” “Paradise League,” “Executive League,” and “Millionaire League.” The story will develop as you win through all of these leagues, and defeat the champion of each league. It will then be possible to challenge the current number one club in the country, the Kanzaki Group’s famous “Sotenbori Sunshine.”
