Fist of the North Star, and its upcoming game Hokuto Ga Gotoku, are all about burly dudes making each other’s heads explode, so what better ways to show the game off than with cute Japanese girls wearing pajamas?
This is what someone at Sega thought when they came up with today’s livestream “Hokuto Ga Gotoku Release Celebration Special Broadcast: Pajama Girls Challenge the Missions at the End of the Century“. That’s exactly what went down over the past several hours.
Sega recruited three charming idols and models, namely Ruka Kurata, Yurika Tachibana, and Erina Takazaki, and tasked them with overcoming seven challenges in the game, under the watchful eye of the Yakuza team led by the inevitable Toshihiro Nagoshi.
You’ll see them race across the wasteland, kill a ton of goons, die about a gazillion times while trying to beat Rei in the arena (to be fair, the fight seems genuinely challenging), and more.
You can check out the video below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the latest batch of screenshots, two gameplay trailers, and a really hilarious live-trailer released by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
As you may have guessed, Hokuto Ga Gotoku releases in Japan tomorrow, March 8th. Actually, to be more precise, it’s already today here in Japan, so happy release day, Sega.
