Sega Japan holding actress auditions for next mainline Yakuza title

New information on the status of the next mainline Yakuza title has surface via the official Sega Japan Twitter and the Ryu ga Gotoku website. Sega Japan will be holding actress auditions for the next mainline Yakuza title, and while this title had been teased in 2017 with the announcement of the wildly successful Yakuza ONLINE, it seems like more headway has been made on the project. The role actresses will be auditioning for will be that of Ichiban Kasuga's (the new protagonist of the Yakuza series) companion. The chosen actress will not only be in the game but be participating in various promotional activities and receive one million yen. If you're a young woman living in Japan above the age of 20, this might be your opportunity to find stardom. While this announcement was made there has been no official title released for this next entry in the series and no official release date either. However, it was confirmed that the next mainline game will be on PlayStation 4.
