Ease my pain. Ease my loneliness.
Earlier this morning, Sega debuted an entire hour of gameplay from the upcoming Hokuto no Ken/Fist of the North Star title, currently in development from Yakuza Studio.
The lengthy footage shows series protagonist Kenshiro doing what his does best – popping heads and taking names – as he ventures through the post-apocalyptic wilderness of a barren Earth. We see him engage in battle with bitter rival Shin, and an appearance is also put in by spunky sidekick Bat. Obviously, the one hour clip may contain minor spoilers.
Unfortunately Hokuto ga Gotoku is yet to receive a confirmed release for the West, but here’s hoping, as it looks as though the game would be welcomed by fans of the Yakuza series, as well as Hokuto no Ken fans in general.
Hokuto ga Gotoku launches on PS4 on March 8 in Japan. A limited edition PS4 console is also available for pre-order.
