The latest TV actor to join Meiji era Yakuza.

Yesterday, we learned of drama actor Katsunori Takahoshi joining Yakuza: Ishin to play Takechi Hanpeita. Today, Sega announced actor Eiichiro Funakoshi will play Kondo Isami, commander of the Shinsengumi. Like Takahoshi’s character, Funakoshi’s character is modeled after himself.

Yakuza: Ishin is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on February 22.
