One of my early favorite anime was Fist of the North Star. I loved the outrageous and over the top action spectacle. Hoping to tap into that nostalgia from a legion of fans, SEGA announced pre-registration for Fist of the North Star LEGENDS ReVIVE. The action RPG is coming to Android and iOS later this year.
LEGENDS ReVIVE is recreating the original 1984 manga’s story straight from the first chapter. Original manga illustrator Tetsuo Hara is supervising the game for complete accuracy.
The story takes place in an era when Hokuto Shinken’s most deadly martial art ever to exist and its secret were believed to be lost. By gathering shards of stone monuments with memories of the characters including Kenshiro, Raoh and many more, players will relive the original story and create a new history of ‘Hokuto Shinken.’

Pre-registration starts today. There’s an added bonus for players that pre-register. If the number of registrations tops 50,000 worldwide, they will receive the Rei character. SEGA announced more rewards will be available if other pre-registration tiers are met.
Create your own Dream Team
Fans will be able to play as some of the most popular characters from the series but also famous supporting characters such as Heart, Jackal, and many more!
All characters become playable by collecting their “shard of stone monument” which players can then use to “REVIVE” them. Fans are free to create their own dream teams, never seen before in the original story.
New illustrations have been created for each character under the supervision of their original creator Tetsuo Hara.
Adrenaline rush tap combo action
3D battle is performed by using simple finger movements, with players being rewarded for correctly timing each combo. By filling up the Secret Technique gauge, you’ll also be able to unleash a devastating attack that’s unique to each character!
