If you're holding out hope for SEGA to announce a Western release date for Fist of the North Star, then you may want to ease your suffering with the game's Japanese demo, which is available to download now. Naturally, you'll need a Japanese PlayStation Network account to do so. You can find the demo's store page through here.
The demo sits at 7.65GB in size, so it's nothing too extravagant. You'll be able to test out the title's combat system via a full tutorial, and then take on a special side mission which shows off various gameplay elements.
Will you be giving the demo a shot? Please don't burst any heads in the comments section below.
