If there’s one game in my collection that is a guilty pleasure of mine, it’s got to be Fist of the North Star. Monotonous, repetitive and filled with more blood than my last new year’s party, the game still holds a place in my heart. A sequel is on the way, and it looks set to have the exact same content as the original, with a few cosmetic touches. Here’s a look at that game with some new gameplay, screenshots and prophylactics.
Here’s 60 new screenshots from the game from Gematsu, which showcases Ken’s shirt-ripping powers. I also have that ability, but it usually revolves around me making my pants explode after eating Mexican takeaway.
And if you’re feeling frisky, why not slap an official Fist of the North Star on your Hokuto Kinshen? According to the Kotaku article that I just plagiarised this from, the iconic manga and anime series has now been translated into a French purse, that comes in three different sizes, ranging from extra-large and medium, to “free size”.
You’re already screwed if you see one of these out of a box. Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2, is out next year February on Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 Network.
