Best PS4 Games to Have on Your Radar in October 2018
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise
Fist of the North Star is one of the longest running anime and manga series out there, dating all the way back to 1983. It served as a huge inspiration for action and battle anime, and that inspiration has even seeped into other mediums like video games. That brings us to Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, a original game with an original story, developed by the studio behind Yakuza.
Lost Paradise stars series’ protagonist Kenshiro, as he discovers a haven in the wasteland, the city named Eden. The game combines the absurd action and gameplay stylings of Yakuza, with the characters and aesthetic of Fist of the North Star. While the game uses the series’ iconic characters, it creates new situations and storylines for them. During our preview of the game at E3, we found it to be a brilliant blend of the two series, with some wacky situations and humor you’d expect from Yakuza. Fist of the North Star has had plenty of video games in the past, but Lost Paradise looks like it could easily be the best one yet, and one of the best PS4 games of October 2018.
