News Fist of the North Star PS4 Combat Looks Like Yakuza Gone Mad
And it's bloody as heck
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is a Yakuza game at its core. It's the same developer, it has the same kind of structure -- complete with minigames -- and the combat looks like it builds directly upon the foundations laid by Kiryu and pals. Having said that, the combat looks properly mental in this latest trailer...
News Fist of the North Star PS4's Western Box Art Is Decent, But a Step Down from Japan's
At least it's not terrible
The box art for Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise has been revealed, and it's thankfully not too shabby.

But it's not quite on the same level as Japan's old school...

Rumour Fist of the North Star Shooting West on PS4, Leaked by Amazon
The stars align
Well, it looks like Fist of the North Star is heading West, if a supposed Amazon leak is to be believed. According to the online retailer, it'll be called Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise outside of Japan. Decent subtitle, to be honest. Given that the leak has popped up during E3, it's probably safe to assume that an...

News SEGA's Fist of the North Star Game Looks Like the Best Thing Ever
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...
News Fist of the North Star PS4's Japanese Box Art Goes Gloriously Old School
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.

Awesome. It's not only making the jump over here, mind. According to a Tecmo-Koei spokesperson speaking to Eurogamer, the anime-flavoured Dynasty Warriors-esque affair will ship over here with all its original Japanese voice-acting in tact. Nice. There'll still be an English dialogue...
