Another Porn Star in the Running for a Yakuza Game

What is it with Sega's Yakuza games and adult video stars? Whatever it is, another could be promoting the next one. Her name is Sakura Kiryu.


Sega selected a host of ladies from across the country (Sapporo, Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, and Nagoya) for its "Miss Yakuza" competition. Only five of the fifteen will be selected and appear in Yakuza 5 as well as promotions for it.

Previously, adult video star Rio filled a similar role when she was selected to appear in Yakuza 4. But's not like when in-game hostess Erena Aihara decided to go into porn after appearing in Yakuza 4.

As with Rio, Sega's official site simply lists her as a "sexy talent". Guess that's Sega shorthand for hardcore pornstar.

Kiryu's last name is, well, the same as the game's protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu. She has been acting in adult films since 2008, appearing in flicks like Water Pole 54 and Let's Screw a Bunch Until Morning.

Good luck Kiryu and all the other hopefuls.
