Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise ATATATATAs West this Fall

Ease my pain, ease my loneliness…

Sega have just announced that Hokuto ga Gotoku is coming to the West as Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. The game will launch in Europe and North America this Fall on PS4.

Created by Team Yakuza (Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio), Lost Paradise follows head-popper extraordinaire Kenshiro and his pals as they make their way through the horrifying desolated wastes of post-apocalyptic Earth. Attacked by scummy villains, biker gangs and fellow martial arts rivals, it will take all of our heroes’ limb-severing, eye-gouging skills to survive.

Plus, you get to burn around town in a sweet dune buggy.

The 1986 Fist of the North Star movie was the first anime I ever saw. It was so violent I had to keep the video hidden under my bed, lest my dad discovered what deviance I was watching and did some head-popping of his own.

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise launches on PS4 in North America and Europe October 2.
