Today, Sega released a batch of new screenshots of ist upcoming Fist of the North Star game Hokuto Ga Gotoku, that adds the mechanics and flavor of the Yakuza series to the recipe of the popular anime and manga.
The screenshots, that come in shiny 1080p, showcase some of the well-established characters that will appear in the game.
We start with the conqueror of century’s end Raoh, and we continue with the second of the four brothers of Hokuto Toki, the third of the four brothers of Hokuto Jagi, the succesor to the Nanto Koshu Ken Shin, the successor of the Nanto Suichouken Rei, and last but not least, the holy emperor of the Nanto Houou Ken Souther.
All of them will probably be very familiar to anyone who has watched the anime or read the manga, and it’ll be interesting to see what role they will play in the game.
You can check out the screenshots just below.
