You only have three seconds
One of the cooler bonuses in Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is the ability to play the game as Yakuza protagonist Kiryu Kazuma. It brings an entirely different light to the game that further cements its development by Sega’s Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios. It also gives you a glimpse of what Kiryu might be if he were completely unchained from his strict moral code.
When Lost Paradise launched two weeks ago, Kiryu was offered for free as DLC. Sega set a deadline of two weeks for people to grab the skin and that grace period is about to end. Today will be your last day to grab Kiryu before the skin goes up to $4 USD. If you are in Europe, you’ll have a few extra days since Lost Paradise launched on October 5.
I won’t say Kiryu dramatically improves the experience, but it certainly is a kick to see him exploding heads left and right. If you’re worried about buying the game so early just to get Kiryu, don’t be: you can safely add the skin to your account without owning the game. Why not do that in case you ever get the itch to step into Kenshiro’s boots?
