Echo’s skin will be based on the protagonist and face of the Yakuza series, Kazuma Kiryu. Meanwhile, hibana‘s skin will be based on a character from Yakuza 2, Kaoru Sayama. Kaoru was the lead detective from Osaka’s police department and was also Kiryu‘s partner and love interest in Yakuza.
According to the video shared by Ubisoft, skins for both the operates will be heavily based on the appearances of these characters as seen in Yakuza 2.
