I remember Channel 4 had an anime night once. Including a documentary on Hentai :lol:

The highlight was the Shadow Skill OVA though :datass:

I used to download episodes from a fansite who would do a proper translation with subs, took a good while getting them all. All stored on my PC along with the Manga movie (both Eng and Jap audio and uncut) and spin off series, absolutely love Hokuto No Ken/Fist of the North Star. Got a load of the Revoltech figures unopened boxed away in the attic.

Oh man if this is as wacky as Yakuza, I'm in.

Do I have to know the manga series extensively?

Nah. I mean, if you know of the anime/manga then it'll obviously add to your enjoyment of the game, but my guess is that the game will, within reason, introduce everything to you as though you're fresh to the FotNS world.

This is off the chain.

Why does everyone keep exploding?

And is where You Are Already Dead macro comes from?

Yeah that was my impression. After a wee punch which kinda put a outlaw kneel down before my eyes and explodes. It’s not even that a hard punch.

Also the town doesn’t look worthy of a PS4 game. It looks like a remaster tbh.

Yeah it's not great looking.

Need to finish Yakuza before I pick up another Yakuza game.

:slol: yeah definitely should have a bit of a catch up story wise with Kenshiro. He is the master/successor of Hokuto, a deadly martial arts that centres on strawberry floating people up via their bodies pressure points.

Get used to that because the remaining Yakuza re-releases from here on out will be remasters.

I don’t mind but this is a brand new game isn’t it? Everything looks... floaty.

So we’ll get Yakuza 3,4 and 5 here in the UK? Super!

Many years ago I remember hiring a Fist of the North Star anime film from Blockbuster. I was watching it with a mate and, within moments of the film starting, heads were exploding. We watched this for about ten minutes and I said that we'd switch it off if more heads exploded. Within about fifteen seconds, another head exploded and thus ended my experience of the series.

I've watched a couple of vids of the game and... well, it seems to be very faithful to the anime :lol: .

Years ago I saw the western live action film but I can't remember anything about it other than the fact it had Malcolm McDowell in it.

Haven't paid attention to any reviews but if you like the Yakuza games you know what to expect.
