In the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, we are introduced to nine brand new characters in the Yakuza universe. You can check out the official descriptions below.
- Takaaki Matsunaga (voiced by Ishimoto Doronzu) – A member of the Hirose family. He has a stern look about him, but does things at his own pace.
- Naoto Tagashira (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya) – A wakashu of the Hirose family. He is an easygoing, but sensible man.
- Kazuaki Iino (voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama) – He has an inseparable relationship with the Hirose family’s Nagumo Tsuyoshi. He has feelings for Kiyomi, but she doesn’t give him the time of day.
- Katsumi Sugai (voiced by Ryusei Nakao) – A man who heads the Tojo Clan’s Sugai group. He is a cunning man who was seemingly involved with the big fire in the Asia District.
- Hyozo Iwaomi (voiced by Masane Tsukayama) – A man who in his lifetime built up a global-scale shipbuilding company based in Hiroshima. He is an elderly, but dignified man.
- Kanji Koshimizu (voiced by Ayumi Tanida) – Himei Association wakagashira. He is the fighting type who craves for battles against the strong.
- Koji Masuzoe (voiced by Wataru Takagi) – Boss of the Himei Association’s Masuzoe Group. Not only does he have a stern appearance and behave violently, he is also feared by his subordinates.
- Big Rou (voiced by Junpei Morita) – Leader of the Chinese mafia. After the big fire in the Asia District, he launched his full scale advance on Kamurocho.
- Han Jungi (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura) – A man driven to devastation by Kazuma Kiryu in the past, and the current head of the Korean mafia’s Jingweon faction.
On August 23rd, SEGA will reveal these characters for the first time on their SEGA-Nama live stream. You’ll be able to watch the live stream yourself on Niconico.
