Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, known as Hokuto Ga Gotoku (北斗が如く lit."Like a North Star") in Japan, is a video game produced by Sega. The game was released for the PlayStation 4 on March 8, 2018 in Japan. It is a 3D action-adventure game by the developers of Sega's Yakuza series (known as Ryū Ga Gotoku in Japan) and features the voice cast of the Yakuza series portraying established Hokuto no Ken characters. Yakuza characters Jo Amon and Sotaro Komaki also appear in the game. The story takes place in an alternate universe, as Kenshiro wanders into the post-apocalyptic haven of Eden in search of his lost love Yuria.
Story[edit | edit source]
Nuclear war almost annihilated every living being, but humanity has survived. In an era in which civilization has been destroyed and nothing is created anymore, strong men struggle to conquer what little food and resources are left. It was a world dominated by violence. Yet, in a corner of that world, there is a place called “the city of miracles,” a city named “Eden.”
Eden receives energy and water from a giant dome-shaped relic of the old world named “Sphere City,” and there is even an entertainment district. Citizens live a comfortable life that others in this era can’t even imagine.
One day a man named Kenshiro reaches Eden at the end of his wanderings. He was the successor of Hokuto Shinken, an ancient assassination art passed down from a single line of successors. The heart of this man, thought invincible, was instead filled with despair. His only hope was a rumor indicating that his long lost fiancee Yuria that he thought dead, was instead alive and in Eden.
However, Eden is closed to outsiders, and the gates block Kenshiro’s way. What will he have to do to enter Eden? What destiny awaits in his pursuit of Yuria?
Kenshiro is a man who follows his love in a mysterious city, caught in the river of fate. A new legend of the savior begins.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The game's original cover art, which had been illustrated by Tetsuo Hara, had to be changed for western territories due to Yuria showing too much cleavage. First run copies of the game, however, came with a reversible cover featuring the original artwork.
- The Japanese version is heavily censored compared to the western version.
