This author’s familiarity with the Fist of the North Star franchise expands as far as that boxing game you often find covered in spilled coffee in the corner of Blackpool arcades, but SEGA’s take on the popular anime (manga?) series looks superb. It’s basically a Yakuza game, but because the universe is less down-to-Earth, it looks even crazier than a classic Kazuma Kiryu campaign.
Take this video showing off all of the gameplay features you can expect to find in the PlayStation 4 exclusive. It starts off pretty ordinary with some one hundred hand slaps, but then we see snippets of Kenshiro engaging in rally racing, bar tending, and, y’know, a spot of SEGA Master System playing. Well, even tough guys like to unwind with Space Harrier on the weekends.
Is there a confirmed Western release?
@Tulio517 Not yet.
@get2sammyb you've never seen the film? It's on youtube! Go watch it!!!
@Johnnycide You're alright, thanks.
I wish this game would come to the West. I’m kind of sick of the other Jump series games that are being made by Namco.
looks great. yadadadadada
Seems like a lot of work just to make a snow cone.
Is this an anime? A single movie? What is it and is it good?
It's atatatata not yadadada
@AFCC It's a super violent manga from the 80's, the story is about post apocalyptic earth after nuclear wars, where only the stongest survives and the weak being subjugated by the strongs. Somehow nearly all the bad guys have punk hair. The protagonist name is kenshiro, the rightful successor of an ancient art of assassination called hokuto shinken, kenshiro he is a man seeking revenge because his fiancee is kidnapped by his rival from the other martial arts school.
It's pretty good manga.
Sega you better bring this game or at least bring us a subs with English menu's please pretty please it looks epic.
If this comes to the west, I'll take back most of the bad things I said about Sega.
I thought this was a fighting game?
This looks so awesome, day one for me.
What would be really cool is if they could have a playable version of the Last Battle on the Megadrive in the game. It's an awful game but would be a fun little easter egg (and I guess there wouldn't be a problem with the licensing)
Mad Max if Max was Bruce Lee.
@ellsworth004 Nope, this is gonna be open world action/adventure like the Yakuza series.
Upon further inspection, looks like they have a Master System beat Em up based on the Manga. Nice!
@wiiware @Arminillo manga only? Or anime too?
@AFCC Manga, anime, movie.
Am I the only one looking at this thinking it looks like a B-rated game at best?
@wiiware Well...I'm gonna check it out
