RGG Studio Holds Audition for New Game; Not Yakuza 3 Kiwami

Sega and RGG Studio will hold auditions to find actors and actresses for a new Like a Dragon game, though it will not be Yakuza 3 Kiwami. Everyone will be able to participate in this audition, which means you will not need to have previous experience or roles in acting. [Thanks, Game Watch!]

The upcoming audition for a new Like a Dragon game will be very similar to the one that Sega and RGG Studio held for The Man Who Erased His Name. For that one, they were looking for women to play the hostesses in the cabaret. Among the winners was VTuber Kson, who would also go on to appear in Infinite Wealth. Yokoyama, a producer for the series, has stated that this audition is not for Yakuza Kiwami 3. However, he states that he believes that Sega will eventually release that game.

If Yakuza Kiwami 3 comes out, then it will be an expanded remake of Yakuza 3 in the same vein as the previous Kiwami titles. Since Yakuza Kiwami 2 came out in 2017, Sega has been releasing either new titles continuing the mainline story (as with Yakuza: Like a Dragon and 8) or new games set in the same universe (Judgment). Time will tell what game Sega is holding this audition for, as well as when we’ll get more news on Yakuza Kiwami 3.

More information on the auditions will come out later. The newest game in the Like a Dragon, or Yakuza series, is Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, which is available on the PS5, PS5, Windows PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
