NEWS - Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise Gets Localized
Reported by NCZ on Mon Jun 11 2018

Sega have officially announced that Hokuto ga Gotoku, a game crossing the world and characters of Fist of the North Star with the gameplay of their own Yakuza, will indeed be localized: under the name Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise.

In a surprising turn of events, the game actually will receive a full English dub. Fans of the original Japanese voices have nothing to worry about though - Lost Paradise will come complete with dual audio options, allowing them to hear a number of Yakuza voice actors in Fist of the North Star roles. The cast includes Takaya Kuroda (Kazuma Kiryu) as Kenshiro, Aya Hisakawa (Kaoru Sayama) as Yuria, Kazuhiro Nakaya (Akira Nishikiyama) as Shin, Toshiyuki Morikawa (Tatsuo Shinada) as Rei, and Masami Iwasaki (Ryuji Goda) as Raoh. The game's English and Japanese trailers are viewable below:

The Japanese version was released just three months ago on March 8, and the wait to play it outside Japan won't be too long at all: Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise hits PS4 internationally on October 2, 2018.

That kinda sounds like Travis Willingham as Raoh. (at least, him yelling.)

Nice, nice that Sega's doing a dub for the game.

I'm interested to see who they've got lined up to voice.

I know nothing about HnK, but I love Yakuza, so I'm in! Sega's localization department has been on a roll lately!

I feel like doing a dub kinda misses out on the cool factor of having Yakuza voice actors play the parts, but at least it's a nice option for those who want it. And hey, at least you-know-who's not behind it.

Hahaha I've never actually seen any of his dubs but I am morbidly curious

Best of luck in getting through this endurance test. I had to take multiple breaks as I watched it myself.

I am wondering on something, Is Kaiji Tang voicing Kenshiro in Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise?

No, it isn't him.

Jagi is going to bug me forever because I swear I should know who he is. I wish we had more to go off of.

@NCZ I think it's Robbie Daymond.

Both Japanese & English Voice Tracks? Well that is a nice and welcome surprise, looking forward to hearing more about this game for sure now and see what Voice Compare pics this could bring in. (I wouldn't mind playing it but I have no PS4, the most recent system I have is a 2DS.)
