Sega released a new trailer for Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, showing off main character Kenshiro and his Hokuto Shinken fighting style.
Combat features via PlayStation blog.
Only in the West: In addition to dual audio with Japanese and English voiceover, you will be among those able to experience the unrestrained, exaggerated deaths from the beloved manga and anime series.
Comfort Combat: If you’ve played Yakuza 0, you will feel right at home with Lost Paradise’s combat. Dodging and strikes are familiar, but with a twist. Faithful to the manga and anime, you’ll utilize the art of Hokuto Shinken, an ability Kenshiro has to focus his strikes into killer attacks. Special finishing moves can be set up that will channel Kenshiro’s power into the bodies of enemies… resulting in exploding heads and torsos.
Similar to Yakuza’s heat actions, after just a few quick strikes, you’ll be prompted to hit the circle button. Follow the quick time action prompts and very soon, you’ll be showered with a comical rain of blood and gore.
Now You’re Really, Really Dead: Besides these strong finishers, Kenshiro will also unlock “Destiny Talisman” moves that can be used via the D-pad. These Talisman moves can quickly end clashes with crowds and slaughter without pity or restraint the toughest of foes. More than two dozen will be at release, and can range from area of effect attacks for crowd control to temporary usage of crazy weapons like flamethrowers.
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise was first announced at E3 2018. Exclusive to PlayStation 4, the game is set to launch on October 2nd.
