Today Sega released two new screenshots of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life,that will be released in Japan on December 8th exclusively for PS4.

We get the introduction of two new characters: Hyozo Iwaomi (above) is the President of Iwaomi Shipbuilding Company, based in Onimichi. He’s an elderly gentleman displaying great dignity. Although the real leadership of the company has been passed on to his son Tsuneo, Hyozo’s presence is still palpable, and some say he has influence on politics on a national level. He’s voiced by Masane Tsukayama, who incidentally also lends his voice to Igor in Persona 5.

Takaaki Matsunaga (below) is a soldier of the Hirose family, part of the Himei Alliance of Onimichi, voiced by comedian Doronzu Ishimoto.

At the bottom of the post, you can also hear their voices, with two videos featuring rspectively Masane Tsukayama and Doronzu Ishimoto.

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) and MMORPGs 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 of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
