Takayuki Yamada shapes up for Fist of the North Star in TV ad

No exploding heads though…

PlayStation Japan’s spokesdude Takayuki Yamada is back being a loon in another TV commercial. This time, Yamada-san is channeling his inner-Kenshiro in preparation for the release of Team Yakuza’s Hokuto Ga Gotoku.

I’m not gonna do the tired YouTube-esque trope of spelling out the skit you’ve just watched/are about to watch, but I will add that the shirt featured in the 60-second ad is fantastic.

Hokuto Ga Gotoku launches in Japan on PS4 March 8. Sadly there has been no announcement of a Western release thus far.
