Trivia / Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise

Go To

  • Acting for Two:
    • Yuria and Lyra are both played by Aya Hisakawa.
    • Both Shin and Thouzer are played by Greg Chun in the English dub.
  • Casting Gag:
    • The Japanese voice track has various Yakuza actors playing rough equivalents in the game.
    • Patrick Seitz plays a light-haired, muscle-bound, villainous warrior with the same powers as the main character. Are we talking about Raoh?, or Dio Brando?
  • Market-Based Title: The game was renamed from Hokuto ga Gotoku to Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise for its western release.

  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": One treasure players can find in the wasteland is a music tape containing "Whole New World", the theme song for Phantasy Star Online 2, a game which was originally announced for a western release in 2013, but has long since been relegated to Vaporware.
  • Meaningful Release Date: Released in the west on October 2, 2018, 7 years and 11 months to the day after Ken's Rage came out in the west on November 2, 2010. In addition, Ken's Rage 2 commemorated the series' 30th anniversary, while Lost Paradise celebrates its 35th anniversary.
  • No Dub for You: Subverted twice over. This will be the second Fist of the North Star game since the first Ken's Rage to have English and Japanese dual audio. This is also the second game developed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio to get an English dub, the first being the PS2 version of the first Yakuza game.

  • The Other Darrin: The game replaces every one of the original Japanese anime's voice actors in a similar vein to Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, this time using the same voice actors from the Yakuza series.
  • Playing Against Type: So, Robbie Daymond made a reputation of voicing soft pretty boys (even if one of them turned psychotic). So you might be surprised that all of those manly voices of Kenshiro here came straight from his throat.
  • Pre-Order Bonus: Pre-order and launch copies have reversible cover art, a decal sticker sheet ("SHIT BALLS!" and Mr. Heart's memetically famous "HIDEBU!"), and a download code for a six-pack of Destiny Talismans (the five members of the Nanto Gosha Sei and Raoh's steed Kokuoh).
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
    • Rei is the second role Toshiyuki Morikawa inherited from the late Kaneto Shiozawa - the first being Dhaos.

    • Also, Toshiyuki Morikawa and Kazuhiro Yamaji previously worked together in the Japanese dub of Zootopia as Nick Wilde and Mr. Big respectively.
  • Role Reprisal: Kirk Thornton previously voiced Toki before in the dub of the anime.
