We are ecstatic to announce that Tecmo Koei have now confirmed Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage will be coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 this Autumn. In the same style as Dynasty Warriors, Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage is the Mad Max of Anime so it should work really well as a new game, and will feature some of the most spectacularly brutal combat that will be seen on the current consoles.
Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage is set on a ravaged earth surviving from a nuclear holocaust, that has brought together communities and villages on what little resources are left. Kenshiro, the man with seven scars on his chest, and the successor of the Fist of the North Star, who is sworn to protect the weak and innocent from the gangs that roam the scorched planet.
“Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage not only pays homage to the brutal beat ‘em ups we all grew up loving, but it also tells the story of Ken’s quest in a world of chaos”, says Will Curley, VP of Sales and Marketing, “joined by a cast of familiar Hokuto characters, and featuring destructive post-apocalyptic wastelands, Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage is the true successor to a much loved gaming genre. This is the reinvention of the beat ‘em up”
