"At today’s Yakuza series live stream, Toshihiro Nagoshi made a surprising announcement that his team is currently developing a game based on Buronson and Tetsuo Hara’s popular manga Fist of the North Star. This game will be titled Hokuto ga Gotoku in Japan, which is a combination of the Japanese names of Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken) and Yakuza (Ryu ga Gotoku).

Although based on the manga IP, Hokuto ga Gotoku will feature a completely original story written by Yakuza‘s team. According to 4Gamer, this will be an action adventure game that will tell a new story about the protagonist Kenshiro who visits a city of miracles named Eden.The game will have not only battles with actions related to pressure points but also exploration adventures and even stuffs you won’t normally see in the original manga, such as Kenshiro working as a bartender."

I mean yakuza is already modern day HNK game?
And it's not original story was noteworthy or had some good writing.
They're just swapping costumes around and adding more special effects.

So there was some dude wandering around desert and saving people with martial arts.
It was setting and ATATATATA that set HNK apart, not the fucking story. It was basically mad max story on anime drugs.

This is going to be like Yakuza Kenzan or Yakuza Isshin, where Kazuma replaces Kenshiro. Those games were based on real history, where Kazuma replaced main historical hero like Miyamoto Musashi or Ryoma Sakamoto. With a little spin to the story.

Its going to be the same.

Is that the battery, why is as big as the god damn cylinder head cover?
It's an ancient battery that you have to top up with water for it to function. That's why it's lined with filler caps. Modern low-maintenance batteries are smaller in part because they're sealed and don't require that.

such as Kenshiro working as a bartender

So is it going to be a drink-mixing minigame wherein you match the perfect concoction to each patron, or will you be able to cut people off.

Will you be able to tell people "Go home. You're already drunk."

Whatever they do, it can't be any worse than HnK2.

Trailer showed Rei and Shin. Makes me wonder how many more characters will re-appear; it seems pretty odd to not show radioactive Jesus and/or Raoh. Doubt it will happen but would be nice to have at least the 3 brothers and Rei playable (I won't even ask for post-apocalyptic Geese Howard).

Ryder Reed

a HnK game that isn't another Musou
and it's by the Yakuza devs to boot
Sign me the fuck up.

David Ward
David Ward

Judging by the characters shown and Kenshiro looking for Yuria, it seems like a retelling of HnK1.

IMHO Sega, Fatlus, SNK, and VW (even though they take eons to actually get something out) have been doing a good job at it. Arc and Namdai could tone down on the kikery.

Adam Rivera
Adam Rivera

So I just noticed, that's Kazuma's seiyuu playing Kenshiro, isn't it? How come Ken has never had a consistent voice actor? He seems to be played by someone else in every appearance.

Asher Johnson

This is like a dream come true
Is his first VA too old to reprise the role?

Christian Morris
Christian Morris

Is his first VA too old to reprise the role?
Maybe? I also heard that Akira Kamiya was just super expensive to hire. I know he played Ryuken in DD Hokuto no Ken and there was even a scene where he did the Kenshiro voice for a gag, but he only ever played Kenshiro for the anime and the original movie, as far as I'm aware. From there you've got a billion different seiyuus and VAs doing his voice, like how he was played by a different actor in each Musou game, Hiroshi Abe in those movies from 2006-2008, and even Takehito Koyasu (Dio) played him one time.

Reminder that all the characters are being played by Yakuza characters.

Kiryu as Kenshiro
Nishiki as Shin
Makoto (Majima's waifu from Yakuza 0) as Xana (a new OC character)
Yuya (the owner of the Stardust club from Yakuza 1) as Jagure (another OC character)

The twist here is that it appears that the Yuria in this game, is not Kenshiro's Yuria.
It's Kenshiro Kasumi's Yuria from Souten no Ken (Fist of the Blue Sky, prequel to Hokuto no Ken set in 1940s China), voiced by Souten no Ken Yuria's actress and her design is also based on Souten's Yuria.
Also a brand new OC villain that looks like another ripoff of Raoh just like Kaioh, he's called Kagami.

Pics related, Yuria, Xana and Kagami in that order.

Justin Ward

How is HnK 2?

The opening is cool and all but the story seems unimportant unlike the first "season".

Brandon Scott

The last 2 years of Japan's vidya output has been better than the West's last 10 years. Changing Pachinko laws saved the industry.

Kagami
Betting on it being Ryuuji Goda under the mask.

Well, if they gonna go that path, I kinda wanna see Saejima as a bear pelt wearing Kiba Daioh.

Ethan Jackson
Ethan Jackson

The story is meh and is literally "EVERYONE HAS A LONG LOST SECRET BROTHER/SISTER" but it's still fun to watch, just not engaging your brain and heart like HnK1 did.
Watch it anyway.

I will be kinda pissed if Raoh doesn't make an appearance. You've got Ken, Shin and Rei but if Raoh and Souther aren't in the game I'll kill somebody. I fully expected Goda to play Raoh.
But now that news of OC villain is out my excitement got curbed a little.

Justin Barnes
Justin Barnes

I will be kinda pissed if Raoh doesn't make an appearance.
Isn't Raoh the most popular HnK character in Japan? He's gonna be in the game, no doubt about it.

Jacob Nguyen

if Raoh and Souther aren't in the game I'll kill somebody
Don't forget radioactive Jesus.

They even gave the man a IRL funeral.

Yeah, the entire premise of most of the 1dt story is about chasing a woman with a magical vag everyone wants to pound because women won't explode when they fuck her, then Rin when she's of age, also gets this magical vag

and even stuffs you won’t normally see in the original manga, such as Kenshiro working as a bartender.

Yep, this is Fist of the North Star alright.
They did it in Fist of The Blue Sky.
They did it in HnK2.
They did it in New Fist of the North Star.
And they're doing it here.

Actually the man bad in New Fist of the North Star was a not-kenshiro voiced by Gackt but the point remains.
