The next Yakuza game has a new protagonist, and Sega has opened auditions for a leading female role.
As posted on the Ryu ga Gotoku website, the upcoming game is taking a turn in the protagonist department. Shin Ryu ga Gotoku—otherwise known as the next Yakuza’s temporary name—will star Ichiban Kasuga. Additionally, as shown by the silhouetted figure seen above, Sega is also looking for a female supporting actress.
Kasuga has appeared in the series before, but the Yakuza franchise has rarely seen a protagonist change before today.
Little is known about the upcoming game, which, as with most previous entries, will have PlayStation exclusivity , though these new revelations point to more news on the way.
Most recently for the series, Yakuza Kiwami released for PC players just around a month ago.
