In case you don't already know, Fist of the North Star is coming to PlayStation 4, and it's being developed by the team behind the Yakuza series. It was first revealed a few weeks ago during the developer's own presentation, and now the brawler's got a new trailer fresh from Sony's TGS 2017 press conference.
Basically, this looks a lot like a Yakuza title, but with a Fist of the North Star skin. It launches in Japan on the 22nd February. There's no word on a Western release yet, but as always, we'll keep you in the loop.
I remember this character. He was apparently modelled after Bruce Lee's likeness. Wasn't there a movie or series back in the 80's of the same name? The trailer doesn't reveal actual gameplay, so is this a 2D fighter like Street Fighter or a third person beat 'em up?
@ShogunRok I hope this means we are one step closer to a "true" JoJo game .
@ToddlerNaruto JoJo is an interesting one. Bandai Namco has had CyberConnect2 make the last few games — in my opinion a really talented developer — but they never really caught on. I'd love to see someone else have a shot at it, but it all depends on what the publisher wants to do with the property.
@ShogunRok Exactly my point when I said a true JoJo game, no offense to Capcom or CyberConnect2.
SEGA would be crazy to not make a JoJo game, it has the same art style and possibly even the same author as North Star?
I dunno just guessing since they look so identical.
