Today Sega revealed four more characters that will appear in the upcoming Yakuza-meets-Fist of the North Star game Hokuto Ga Gotoku.

The first returning character is be familiar to any fan of the manga and anime, Raoh, also known as the Conqueror of Century’s End. He is he eldest of the brothers of Hokuto, and uses the art of Hokuto Shinken to suit his own plans, in order to unify the people with violence.

Rihaku is the only doctor in the clinic of Eden. He’s also a martial arts master, and know the situation outside the city very well. He almost seems too experienced to be just a doctor. Of course, fans of the series will know a lot more about him, but I won’t spoil who he really is.

Laila is a fierce lady who rules Eden’s nightlife, including night clubs and pit fights in the arena. While she is desired by men, she is wise and has the ability to calmly judge the situation, which makes her popular among women as well. Eden’s chief Kisana fully trusts her.
Taruga is the second in command in the army of Kyohou, the evil king. Despite his jesting manners, he has a twisted and cruel mind. He fights with handguns that are very valuable in this era of lost technology.

You can check them all out in the gallery below, with Laila instantly acquiring “best waifu” status (and I’ll fight you over this). If you want to see more, you can check out the first character reveal, the second group, and the original announcement.

Recently, Sega also revealed the future of the Yakuza series (split in two games, Yakuza Online and another codenamed Shin Yakuza), and Yakuza Kiwami 2.

Hokuto Ga Gotoku is being developed using the Yakuza Kiwami engine with the addition of a specific Toon Shader, and it will launch in 2018 in Japan exclusively for PS4.
