The official website for Sega's Hokuto ga Gotoku PlayStation 4 game revealed on Thursday that the game's release date has been delayed from February 22 to March 8. The announcement cited the need to improve the game's quality.
The game takes place in the world of Fist of the North Star, and will feature a completely original story. The game will feature familiar characters from Fist of the North Star, and will also feature original characters that original manga artist Tetsuo Hara is designing for the game. Sega is developing the game in the vein of its Yakuza (Ryū ga Gotoku) games.
Takaya Kuroda, who plays Kazuma Kiryū in the Yakuza games, will voice Kenshirō in Hokuto ga Gotoku.
In the game's story, Kenshirō learns that his beloved fiancée Yuria has died. Kenshirō hits rock bottom after learning of this devestating news, but one day he hears a rumor: Yuria is in fact alive. With hope in this rumor being the only thing keeping Kenshirō alive, he wanders through the wasteland and manages to reach the miraculous town called "Eden."
