Sega's Fist of the North Star is coming to the west

You're already dead.

The Yakuza team's take on Fist of the North Star is coming westward, with Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, as it's now known, coming to PlayStation 4 on October 2nd.

The localisation will bring dual-track audio, with English and Japanese dubs available, and it'll also introduce what's being dubbed as 'Extra Carnage', with enhanced violence for this new version.

Quite what that means is a little sketchy, but going from Fist of the North Star's release in Japan earlier this year, we know that it's a very Yakuza-ish take on the long-running manga and anime, featuring exploration and over-the-top combat. And lots of boozing too, of course.
