While we aren’t getting to see any gameplay just yet, the video features the award ceremony of the auditions held to pick an actress for a relevant supporting role in the game.

We see the ten finalists showing acting, singing, breaking wooden tablets, or showing their ability with fighting sticks.

In the end, the winner is announced, and it’s professional actress Eri Kamataki, 24 years-old. She will play a buddy for new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga.

Four honorable mentions were also awarded to talent Violet Sawa, model Manae Miyakoshi, talent Iroha Yanagi, and actress Ririka. All four will get to play smaller roles in the game.

During the livestream, it was also confirmed that the reveal of the game will come on August 29. This is in line with the reveals of previous games of the Yakuza franchise (including the spin-off Judgment), and possibly indicates the traditional Japanese release window in December 2019.

If you want to see more, you can also check out another video related to the audition.

While we haven’t seen any gameplay just yet, Sega provided a glimpse with a hilarious April Fool prank video that appeared to use assets from the game.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
