They say dreams do come to life. This is especially true for VShojo VTuber, talent and Kiryu-lover Kson, who last night won the Like a Dragon Hostess Grand Prix and will now be featured in both the upcoming Gaiden game as well as Like a Dragon 8, the next mainline game in the long-running franchise formerly known as Yakuza.








Kson won the vote against four other girls to be featured in the eighth game in the series. All five girls will get a role in the upcoming Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name game, which is scheduled to release later this year.
