The publisher is seeking males to play men of extortion, riches, and spirit (two for each), dwelling in the streets of the new Yakuza, as well as men to appear on a host club street sign in the red light district (20 total). The deadline is July 27.
Successful applicants for the street dwellers will receive a role in the game as a character, and be rewarded PlayStation 4 and PS Vita systems, and a PS4 copy of the game. Successful applicants for the street sign will receive a role in the game on the poster, and a copy of the game on their preferred platform.
Additionally, Sega is holding a “Sexy Actress Popularity Contest” for fans to vote from among 100 actresses to appear as characters in the game, with the top 10 making it in. Voting begins today at the official website and runs through August 3.
A release date for the next Yakuza has not been announced.
