Yakuza 7: Finalists Chosen for the Role of Female Lead


Sega is doing great things with regards to the new chapter of Yakuza, whose jobs are going on without stopping. At this moment the development of the game is well underway, but there are still some things to fix, including the dubbing of the female protagonist.

The publisher has in fact carried out several auditions to choose the woman who will give features and voices to the female character of the new Yakuza, and from the more than a thousand candidacies proposed, the list has been restricted to a shortlist of ten candidates, who will, therefore, support Kazuhiro Nakaya, the actor who plays Ichiban Kasuga, who is also a member of the jury that evaluated them.

The ten actresses in the final are:

  • Nanako Aizawa
  • Eri Kamataki
  • Tokiko Kitagawa
  • Sumire Sawa
  • Yuika Shiina
  • Asaka Fujita
  • Manae Miyakoshi
  • Misaki Yasu
  • Iroha Yanagi
  • Ririka

The winner will, therefore, be chosen among the candidates and announced on 10 July. As we said in the meantime, work on the game goes on: the story of the new Yakuza has been completed, and therefore only part of the dubbing is missing. Moreover, as announced a few days ago, more details on the new Yakuza are coming in July, when we will probably also know the name of the protagonist of the game.

What do you think? What do you expect from the new chapter of the Nagoshi saga, despite the absence of Kazuma Kiryu?
