'Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2' from Tecmo KOEI.
Video game publisher Tecmo KOEI has announced the official release of Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A version for the Wii U is scheduled to release as a download-only title on Thursday.
The second video game adaptation of renowned action manga and anime from the 1980's known as 'Fist of the North Star', Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 offers players original storylines and an online co-op and versus play mode.
In the game's "Legend Mode", players will follow the storyline of the entire manga, starting with a re-imagined version of 'Raoh' and covering 'Celestial Emperor' and 'Land of Shura'. This adaptation was created to ensure that the mode can be enjoyed by both fans of the manga and newcomers to Kenshiro's post-apocalyptic world. Different characters will be controlled for each episode (there are more than 20 playable characters) and boss battles will feature entire famous scenes from the manga.
"Dream Mode" introduces original storylines to the 'Fist of the North Star' universe while bridging the gaps between parts of the main story. These storylines often focusing on some of the series' minor characters.
Finally, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 will support both co-op and versus play over the Internet.
In addition to the release of the game, Tecmo KOEI has stated that a variety of character costumes and stages will be available as downloadable content.
The ESRB has rated Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 as "M for Mature".
