Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is now available in Australia on PS4

Venture Into a Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland as Kenshiro in Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise

Presented by Ryu ga Gotoku Studio, the development team behind the beloved Yakuza series; Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is now available in Australia on PlayStation 4; giving fans the chance to experience more of Kenshiro’s life; as part of an alternate universe of the original series canon. 

#YouAreAlreadyDead, Especially If You Don’t ATATATATA along with Kenshiro; to the Launch Trailer 

Run, punch, and literally force the life force energy from your fists into the bodies of over-muscled thugs. Their bodies will explode. It’s pretty crazy. You can set the blood to mild if it’s too much; but we won’t because it’s launch day, and nothing says celebration like a rain of comical chaos.

Also, there’s a pretty deep story in the game. You’ll explore the post-apocalyptic city of Eden, an oasis in a perilous desert filled with danger; that just so happens to be your starting point for finding the lost love of your life, Yuria. Their love is one for the ages. It’s a pretty serious story.

If you want to take a break from the drama of love; you can also run your own bar and serve up wasteland cocktails. Or run a health clinic. Or play some Outrun, one of the classic SEGA games included in the actual game. Anyway, there’s a lot to do besides punching your fists, but we suspect you’ll enjoy that part a lot.

Also, check out this hilarious Hokuto dancing move which is not in the game; but we wanted to show you anyway!

Here’s all of the other info and a hot tip: during the first two weeks of launch; (5th October to 19th October), you can get a free Kiryu skin add-on; that lets you play as the Dragon of Kamurocho. It’s wacky and we love it.
