Japanator: "The sexy man you see up there is Shun Akiyama, one of the four - yes, four - lead characters in Yakuza 4, bound for PlayStation 3s across the nation next year. He's certainly more...sympathetic-looking than the human stone wall that is series star Kazuma Kiryu, and Dale assures me that Shun's got an equally interesting backstory as well.
Some of that is revealed in the new Yakuza 4 trailer below. Also, it seems like a fair bit of the series' hostess-training gameplay will take place during Shun's portion of the game.
Are you interested? Or would you rather be playing Yakuza Of The End, the zombie-shooter spinoff?"
