The official Twitter also teased that the Kazuma Kiryu skin is in the full game-

And if anyone missed it, the game will have a reversible cover with the Japanese version on the inside-

Didn't expect it so soon yeah. Kiryu skin was in the JP game so it makes sense.
They said during the panel that they add to put the JP art as reversible cover art because the ESRB ratings didn't like the sideboobs on it.

Man, the 4th is stacked.

I have this pre-ordered (rip amazon prime discounts), but this will help in seeing if I keep it or not.

Doh, this feels like it’s coming out too soon. Should have been Q1 2019, IMO. I haven’t even done much more then the first few hours in Kiwami 2 and so many great games are coming.

Oh god I forgot Forsaken was the 4th. I thought it was the 7th.

What the hell.

Sweet. Downloading this now.

I'm only here for the Yakuza team. I literally know nothing about Fist of the North Star. Lol.

Played the demo this morning.

You don't get enough in the adventure part of it. You just find money to buy parts for the car.

You can race in it though and have a walk around the place. Felt good to play though. Apart from the slight delay when turning.

The show is also on Hulu.

At least it was a while back and crackle

A while back as well.


Anyway it’s a great show that had way more character development than I thought it would and some very interesting story lines.

....is the demo the full game again?

For anyone interested watch past the Roah and Toki stuff that is the meat and potatoes of the show. So like something like 80 episodes but you might as well go the whole way and watch through the first series it’s only 109 episodes. The shin stuff was actually not as good as the stuff that comes later but it’s all fun

Oh damn, you get a free theme for playing the demo? I already tried the Japanese demo, but I wouldn't mind replaying this in English, getting a free theme is a nice bonus.

Refreshing to be killing everyone rather than just knifing/putting nails down a person's throat/etc in Yakuza, yet they are perfectly okay afterwards, hah. Rather short demo though for the story mode.

This is easily the biggest budget Fist of the Northstar game that will ever be made. Full city, full assortment of quests and story.

Combat is fun, but I just want a much larger variety of executions.

I posted this in the Yakuza community thread but it may be of interest to some people reading this thread (I don't know if this is worthy of a new thread):

"France and Italy are getting a special "Kenshiro Edition" of Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise because Hokuto no Ken is pretty popular in those two countries (I remember watching HNK on French TV back in the late 80s): http://www.gameblog.fr/news/78068-fist-of-the-north-star-lost-paradise-une-edition-speciale-ke"
