The star of Sega Games and Yakuza Studio's Fist of the North Star game, Hokuto ga Gotoku, is raring for a fight in the artwork for an exclusive PlayStation 4 console. The engraved console shows Kenshirō with his deceased fiancée Yuria in his arms. His own countenance is curled into a scowl while his huge right hand, balled into a fist, appears to be drawing back to throw a punch.

The limited edition PS4 goes on sale the same day as the game, March 8. There are two versions based on hard drive space. The 500GB version costs 33,480 yen (US$295) while the 1TB version costs 38,480 yen (US$339), excluding tax. Both consoles come with a Hokuto ga Gotoku theme, design package, and cover plate.

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.

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."
