Someone is going to have to tell me how North Star and Yakuza are related since some people are hating on North Star and talking about Yakuza fatigue for North Star only.
You're going to have to give more details than that.

The Yakuza devs are making a Yakuza-like Fist of the North Star game. Even has the voice of Kiryu doing the voice of Kenshiro. It looks pretty incredible.

I've seen people talking about Yakuza fatigue or calling this North Star game a Yakuza for some reason, when the only Yakuza related thing is a voice actor.

Pretty sure the game is going to be a lot like Yakuza games. Aside from it having the same developers, the game's name is a combination of Hokuto ga Gotoku. Which is a combination of Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star's Japanese name) and Ryū ga Gotoku (Yakuza's Japanese name). So I imagine it's going to be a combination of the two series.

The similarities are noticeable. I don't see the problem though as we know what type of combat and tone of the game we're getting.



Link for those that can't see the embedded video.
