Hokuto ga Gotoku (北斗が如く lit. "Like a Big Dipper") is an upcoming PlayStation 4 Yakuza spin-off that uses the characters from the Hokuto no Ken manga series.

Story will follow Kenshiro, a martial artist who will attempt to rescue his kidnapped lover, Yuria and will eventually face off several powerful warlords in a post-apocalyptic world wracked by nuclear war.

Hokuto ga Gotoku is the third Fist of the North Star game made by a Sega studio. Previously Sega Released a Sega Master System game (Black Belt) and a Sega Mega Drive game (Last Battle). Both of these games were westernized (story and names of the characters changed) due to limited following of the North Star series had in the overseas.

Game will be basicly a Yakuza game with a Fist of the North Star theme. Most of the gameplay elements from Yakuza series will be retained, except small tweaks to fighting system in order to make it more like something part of the North Star universe. Game will follow the original series but will also have side stories and mini games similar to the Yakuza series. Some of these mini games and side stories will have a humorous, tongue-in-cheek nature similar to the ones found in Yakuza games, including a bartendering mini game, in which, Kenshiro will prepare drinks using his Hokuto Shinken powers.

Original Master System release (known as Black Belt in the west) will be avaiable as a playable mini game.

Many of the voice actors from the Yakuza series will return for the Hokuto ga Gotoku. For example Takaya Kuroda, who voiced Kazuma Kiryu in Yakuza games will voice Kenshiro.
