E3 2018 Hands-On Preview: Yakuza Kiwami 2 | Link-Cable

Well today I righted that error by getting a chance to go hands-on with its HD remastering Yakuza Kiwami 2 at E3 2018."

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is not an HD remaster, it is a complete remake of the game using the same engine as Yakuza 6.

Exactly, in the same way Kiwami was a complete remake of Yakuza 1 on a newer engine. Supposedly they've improved the Dragon Engine a fair amount in Kiwami 2 and it has fewer performance issues than Yakuza 6 did on the regular PS4 model.

I heard some things about the performance issues but I have a Pro so I didn't have that problem

It wasn't as bad as Yakuza 5 on PS3 but it had framerate drops and screen tearing in Kamurocho. Onomichi on the other hand performed much better.
