Several notable new titles are launching in Japan this week, but perhaps the most notable among the group is Hokuto ga Gotoku, the Yakuza-style Fist of the North Star game developed by Ryu ga Gotoku Studio, which creates the Yakuza games.
In Hokuto ga Gotoku, Kenshiro makes his way into Eden, a miraculous city where he heard a rumor that his previously-thought dead fiancee Yuria is headed towards.
