Like a Dragon Gaiden Kosei Shishido

Today Sega released a new video dedicated to the upcoming Like a Dragon game Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name.

While this time around we see no gameplay, the video places the spotlight on Japanese actor Yasukaze Motomiya, who plays the role of Kosei Shishido, a lieutenant of the Watase Family, a subsidiary of the Osaka-based Omi Alliance. 

Motomiya-san is a veteran of this kind of role, and he discusses the character and how he connected with him. Interestingly, he admits that he's not much of a gamer, but he says he put his heart and soul into playing Shishido-san. 

You can check out the video below.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is coming on November 9 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The game will explain what happened to the traditional hero Kazuma Kiryu between Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Infinite Wealth. Recently, we saw new gameplay showcasing Kiryu's two fighting styles that will be featured in the game, on top of the first look at the character played by popular Vtuber and YouTuber Kson.
