Holy gooseberry fool, so hype!

I'll miss Kiryuu in Yakuza, but damn he's a perfect fit for this.

Given how mental the combat and world can be in Yakuza (based on my experience with 0 anyway) this seems like a perfect fit.

Really hope they dub this one though.

I'm assuming this is going to be an open world game set in the Fist of the North Star universe. I'm mildly curious about it at the moment. I've never played a Yakuza game but I have played a fair few Fist of the North Star games and they tend to range from awful like the Mega Drive game released here as Last Battle to average like the Musou games.

The Yakuza games are open world, in a smaller open world than say something like Elder Scrolls or Horizon, but with generally more to do in those world's and more characters. So I'd fully expect this to be at least along the same lines, or possibly a bigger open world given the series setting.

http://gematsu.com/2017/08/hokuto-ga-gotoku-confirms-shin-yuria-game-original-characters wrote:Hokuto ga Gotoku confirms Shin and Yuria, game original characters

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has a few new details on Hokuto ga Gotoku, the newly announced Fist of the North Star game for PlayStation 4 from the developers of the Yakuza series.

Get the tidbits below.

Setting

Eden, the City of Miracles – A city with an inexhaustible supply of water and electricty from the giant dome-shaped old world relic overlooking the city. It has a circulation of currency, and even an entertainment district shining with neon lights.

Characters from the Original Work

Shin (voiced by Kazuhiro Nakaya, who voices Akira Nishikiyama in the Yakuza series) – Denshosha of the Nanto Koshu Ken martial arts style. He took Yuria from Kenshiro, and gave Kenshiro the seven scars on his chest.
Yuria (voiced by Aya Hisakawa, who voices Tayuu Yoshino in the Yakuza series and Faye Lee in Binary Domain) – Kenshiro’s fiancee.

Game Original Characters

Jagre (voiced by Kenta Miyake, who plays Yuya in the Yakuza series) – A man with overwhelming power who judges Kenshiro to be a monster. He imprisons Kenshiro in the dungeon of Eden.
Kisana (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro, who plays the role of the blind woman in Yakuza 0) – The daughter of the founder of Eden. She listens to the voice of the people, and drafts and implements various policies. Some call her a “Saint.”
The Evil King (voiced by ???) – A mysterious kenpo user. He rounds up an “Evil King Army” of bandits and repeatedly attacks Eden.

Creators Interview Tidbits

General Producer Daisuke Sato: “I wanted to make a Fist of the North Star unique to Yakuza Studio. When considering what would make the best use of that collaborative feeling, I thought it would be good for the Yakuza voice actors to play the Fist of the North Star characters. Takuya Kuroda’s voice is very suited to Kenshiro.”
Original Author Tetsuo Hara: “On that premise, I think Kenshiro’s voice is suited to someone with a good body. Listeners can also tell when the voice is of someone with the same build as Kenshiro. Kuroda’s voice is genuinely strong, and it is also nice that it bears resemblance to Yusaku Matsuda. I thought it was fate, or that I had met the ideal Kenshiro.”
Kenshiro Voice Actor Takaya Kuroda: “Fist of the North Star is a very well known work, so I by no means want to destroy the image everyone has of Kenshiro, but at the very least I plan to do Kenshiro faithfully in regard to the author’s vision.”
Tetsuo Hara: “Concerning the game, I wanted it to be done in the worldview of Yakuza. Fist of the North Star will be 35 years old next year. If we don’t adopt new energies from scratch, it won’t be a game that people will love.”
Daisuke Sato: “You can think of it as a mix of the Fist of the North Star and Yakuza worldviews.”
Tetsuo Hara: “If it comes across on screen, in the art and such that we had fun making it, that we must love Fist of the North Star, then that’s already fine for me.”

Loved the first game on PS3. The second not so much.

Anyway, this new adventure sounds promising. Very possibly a day one purchase for me.

Oh, man, that looks so cool. For some reason I’d thought that this game was a Koei Tecmo release rather than Sega.

The license would be a good fit for their Musou type games.

Ken's Rage and Ken's Rage 2. The first is pretty decent but I hear the second one isn't very good.
