It was recently announced that Japanese actress, singer and bikini idol Saaya [Irie] had been chosen to be the ambassador for the hugely successful video game Bio Hazard (aka Resident Evil) from September 2011 until March 2012.
She appeared at the Tokyo Game Show event in cosplay as Special Operations Agent (SOA) of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, Jill Valentine. She told DJ, “Jill Valentine is very tall with a quiet sense of self-possession, which is much different from me; I’m talkative and funny.”
So why was she was chosen as the game’s ambassador? She answered, “Mr. Kobayashi, who is producer of Bio Hazard Series, knows I love to play Bio Hazard and offered me the chance to be ambassador, and thus, I did not have to audition.”
