Want to be a Virtual Hostess?
Add this to the list of titles we probably won’t see Sega release in the West. In a new interview with series head and Sega CCO Toshihiro Nagoshi, he and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama confirm a new Yakuza series title is in development. This, according to Gematsu and various sources.
The two also revealed auditions are underway for those interested in becoming a virtual hostess in-game.
It’s a no-brainer for Japan, since Yakuza is one of Sega’s strongest franchises in the region. But ever since the March 2012 release of Yakuza of the End, or Dead Souls, the West has not seen subsequent entries. It’s not likely this will be any different, but we’ll let you know if that changes.
