Transform Yourself into Fist of the North Star Character in App from SUNTORY Beer

posted on by Amanda Ellard

Ever wanted to know what you would look like as a Fist of the North Star character? In a new app by SUNTORY Beer Company, only available through a QR code on the back of a specially marked six packs of the MALT's beer, you can transform into a Fist of the North Star character.

The iOS and Android app "Feast of the North Star by the MALT'S" is unlocked when you hover your phone over a six pack. It gives you the option to transform your selfie into the manga's style or piece together different face parts from hairstyles and beards to glasses and hats to create one of 320 million possible face combinations. The fun wraps up with a video. You star beside Kenshirō, Toki, Raō, and Souther in one of five different comic strip story options you can share as a video on social media websites.

The Fist of the North Star post-apocalyptic fighting manga started in 1983 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump and was written by Buronson and illustrated by Tetsuo Hara. It inspired two anime series that ran from 1984-1988, two films, and numerous video games. The original creators are credited with the original work for the Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji spinoff gag manga, while Yūshi Kawata writes the manga's scenarios, Imōto Yukito draws the manga, and Yukito is credited with collaboration. Another popular spin-off includes DD Fist of the North Star written and illustrated by Kajio, which received anime shorts in 2011 and an anime series in 2013.
