Sega has released new information and screenshots of Yakuza: Like a Dragon introducing Yokohama Seiryu Clan characters Ryuhei Hoshino and Mamoru Takabe.
Get the details below.
■ Yokohama Seiryu Clan
The “Ijinsan” are the three major powers that control Isezaki Ijincho in Yokohama. The Seiryu Clan, one of those three powers, is the single greatest yakuza organization in Yokohama. Chairman Ryuhei Hoshino, an old-fashioned and genuine yakuza, has controlled the underworld of Yokohama since long ago.
—Yokohama Seiryu Clan Headquarters
The Yokohama Seiryu Clan Headquarters rules over the underworld of Isezaki Ijincho. Thorough measures have been taken to prevent intruders from raiding the building. It is said to have relentless security layered throughout, and that even if an intruder managed to make their way inside, they would not be able to make it out alive.
Ryuhei Hoshino (voiced by Tetsuo Kaneo)
The chairman of the Yokohama Seiryu Clan, the sole yakuza organization in Isezaki Ijincho. He is a genuine yakuza who values duty, humanity, and honor, and is committed to the ways of old-fashioned chivalry. While he is a big-shot who has controlled the underworld of Isezaki Ijincho for many years, he is also a gatekeeper who has continued to protect Ijincho from the invasion of foreign enemies.
Mamoru Takabe (voiced by Taichi Endou)
The sharp number two of the Yokohama Seiryu Clan. He has sworn his allegiance to Ryuhei Hoshino, who has placed great trust in him as his right arm. While he has a calm and collected personality, his hot-bloodedness allows absolutely no tolerance for his enemies.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is due out for PlayStation 4 on January 16, 2020 in Japan, and in 2020 in the Americas and Europe. A demo is also planned. Read more about the game here, here, here, here, here, and here.
