Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise - Andy Chan - 06-12-2018

English announcement:




I'm contemplating whether to put this on the old thread, but I figure since it's a new announcement for English, why not a new thread?
And here we are! Hokuto ga Gotoku has officially come to the west!

Your'e already dead!

Omae wa mou Shindeiru... Now in English LOL
Loved that at the end.

That title is already dead. The charm of the game is that it's Hokuto+Gotoku, but with the english title it's "Just a north star game".

They couldn't have done something similar like Yakuza of the North Star? the NA name just sounds like it's trying way too hard forced to be cool and edgy.

Lost Paradise works as part of the title as its a reference to the city of EDEN in the game and from the poem paradise lost that is about Eden.

Yakuza of the North Star sounds too tacky and has nothing to actually do with Yakuza outside its engine and gameplay... Like a North Star sounds weird... Sometimes direct translations from Japanese to english is rough and doesn't sound well, the opposite is true too.


RE: Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise - Vincent - 06-12-2018

It doesn't cover the whole story, right?


RE: Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise - yazi - 06-12-2018

I don't understand what you mean by full story. This is a unique story for Fist of the North Star involving the city of Eden and Fist of the North Star characters. It is not a adaptation of the main story.


RE: Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise - Vincent - 06-12-2018

I've read somewhere that it spoils many things up to episode 100 of the first Anime.


RE: Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise - yazi - 06-12-2018

Probably does, it has to start from somewhere. Plus there's been multiple revisions/remakes of the anime too with movies and OVAs. This game might use a revised/condensed version of the core story to an extent.

This game is basically a gaiden story.
I'd love it if Rei Gaiden was made into game, but this is fine.

Besides, more Kiryu .. eh.. Kenshiro is always good. Big Grin
