Today Sega revealed the box art of the upcoming Fist of the North Star-meets-Yakuza action-adventure game Hokuto Ga Gotoku.

The cover artwork, presented in a classy black and white with just that sleek touch of red that makes it even more striking, was drawn by none other than the manga’s author Tetsuo Hara. It represents Kenshiro with his lost love Yuria, who is the focus of the hero’s search in the game.

The game will be released in Japan in both the standard and the premium “End of the Century Edition,” that will come with the ability to change Kenshiro’s appearance to that of Kiryu Kazuma, additional music from the anime, and a PS4 theme designed by Tetsuo Hara himself.

You can check out the beautiful cover art below, both with the logos and in a clean version that has gone right on my smartphone wallpaper. It’s that good.

Hokuto Ga Gotoku will release in Japan on February 22nd, 2018, exclusively for PS4. A western release has not been announced for now.
