Following on the fine Italian leather heels of yesterday's Yakuza sequel news comes word that Sega's scouting young Japanese women to "model" as the game's hostess club employees. The 5-10 finalists' likenesses will be used in-game, and the girls will take part in promotional events -- including a Tokyo Game Show appearance -- for the title.
Adriasang reports that auditions will commence following the June 19 submissions deadline, leading up to a round of public web voting. The site also says that Yakuza series producer Toshihiro Nagoshi told Famitsu that casting will be held for "males and other age groups" at a later date. "Other age groups" being another way of saying "women who aren't 18-20, attractive and likely to make countless otaku drool."
