Fist of the North Star is out early next year in Japan, and so SEGA has decided to reveal the game's official PlayStation 4 box art. Featuring an illustration penned by Tetsuo Hara, the artist of the original manga, it's not the kind of cover you see all that often these days -- it's definitely got an old school look to it.

In case you didn't know, Fist of the North Star is being developed by the team behind the Yakuza series, and based on what we've seen of it so far, you could almost call it a reskin. There's no word on a Western release yet, so we're hoping and praying that the publisher announces something once the game's out in its home nation.

What do you think of the box art? Please don't ask us about Ken's absolutely massive hand in the comments section below.
