Sega’s Hokuto ga Gotoku, a brand new game by the Yakuza team, which is due out exclusively on the PlayStation 4 early next year, and which is based on the beloved Japanese manga and anime Fist of the North Star, got some new footage at the ongoing Tokyo Game Show this week. And you can check that footage out for yourself below.
The game looks to be remarkably reminiscent of Yakuza in a lot of ways (which makes sense, since it is based on the same engine as the just launched in the west Yakuza Kiwami). That said, true to Sega’s insistence that the game will not just be a Fist of the North Star skinned Yakuza, eagle eyed players and fans may already be able to spot some differences between the two franchises.
Hokuto ga Gotoku is due out exclusively on the PS4 early next year in Japan; a western release date has not yet been announced.
