Tecmo Koei are working on Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This morning, they showed an E3 trailer for the game, which you can watch below:
Just saw this like five minutes ago, but damn, I was not expecting this. I didn’t think the game sold well enough to warrant a sequel, but great! The first Ken’s Rage is easily one of the most fun Dynasty Warriors games, I feel.
So much awesomeness!!! Had a lot of fun playing the first ^^!
Can only ask that its not a dud like the last one.
WANT NOW!!!! :D
The first game was fantastic, being both insanely faithful to the Fist of the North Star mythos and taking some unique liberties with the standard Musou formula. I recall people complaining non-stop about the dub of the game, but I thought it was pretty good overall. Certainly nowhere near as bad as the Streamline dub of the first movie, since the guy playing Kenshiro in this actually sounded like Kenshiro.
I HAVE NO REGRETS THAT I WILL BUY AND PLAY THE HELL OUT OF THIS GAME.
I never thought I would see a sequel, but I’m ecstatic that they’re making one. I hope we have more female characters too; I know there are at least one or two that could be added.
I hope they add on to gameplay mechanics. One of the really disappointing things about how Samurai Warriors turned out over the years was that they had some awesome approaches to gameplay mechanics, like giving Magoichi a sniping mode and letting ninjas have special ninja paths, but then they stripped later games of those mechanics. The first Fist of the North Star allowed the characters to do this sort of thing too, with Ken breaking down walls or Mamiya crawling through pipes, and I’ll be disappointed if those are removed.
man he’s still mad
Garbage. I finished the game with Ken so I could say I atleast beat the game. The game is ever so slightly more in depth than the last Dynasty Warriors I’ve played, DW4, but very slow, boring, and monotonous all the same. It’s was fun for maybe the first few missions, but then dragged on the rest of the game because it was nothing but the same thing over and over.
It’s a normal Dynasty Warriors game. If you don’t like DW, you’re not going to like this. Should’ve been clear from the get go >_>
Do you ever stop? Is it your mission to complain about DW games wherever they are mentioned?
Yes!!! I hope this covers the time-skip arcs. I honestly wasn’t expecting this to get a sequel. The first one was a big surprise in how fun it was. It was honestly one of my favorite games of 2010.
Hokuto hyakuretsu ken!!!!
urgh now I want this too. DAMMM YOU KOEI!!!!! XD
I wonder if they will cover the 2nd season the timeskip. lol they will have kenshiro with an beard then XD
The only regret I had about the first one was buying it.
I WILL BUY THIS GAME!
Awesome! Ken’s Rage was one of very few games that I actually had a blast with the entire time I was going for Platinum. By far the best musou game I’ve played, and one of the best games of 2010. I am soooo happy for this!
I actually ended up enjoying playing as Mamiya the most, and NOT just for this!
Yeeeeeeeeesssssss!!! No matter what people said about the first game, I loved it to death and I was hoping for a sequel all this time! Thank you Tecmo Koei, I luv u~!
B-B-But my wallet…
It was already dead.
HOW CAN I AFFORD THIS?!
THE STREETS AWAIT YOU GOOD SIR OR MADAM.
The moment u fall broke, u are already dead.
I clicked on this article, thinking “Oh, it’ll be released in Japan, and NA will hear nothing of it, whatever.” Then I saw the English title and I was surprised.
Though the fact that everything for this trailer is from the first game does not exactly fill me with hope.
They should have it so that if you go to look at the DLC, you well get a message saying “You have already been charged.”
“WTF! SONY IS TAKING MY MONIES WITHOUT ASKING ME!”
The above is an exact quote of how idiots would react to that message and also why we can’t have nice things. :)
already dead, hope it features online multiplayer coop, and better graphics.
Using classic costume too since the new one looks kinda weird
Hope it features more than 8 characters,there were more NPCS in the previous game than playable characters.
What’s the first day I can preorder this?
ABOUT TIME! Seriously, between a new Naruto game of a new Dragon Ball Z game every freaking year, we really need a little more diversity in these anime games, and you really can’t go wrong with Fist of The North Star. If they can have more playable characters, and multiplayer modes, then I’ll be a veeeery happy fan.
Rule 1 in surviving the world of Fist of the North Star, don’t get a mohawk
Lol. The moment u even think of that rule, u are already dead.^^
oooh, post Raoh-arc characters? That sure seems to be what that big old helmet is implying! Fine by me AS LONG as there is also playable Fudoh and Jyuuza and Shu. Playable chars from the Raoh gaiden can join in too, but mostly those three, for my only regrets with the first game was that I couldn’t play as those three.
… And a dream-mode where you play as them and win, only to bitter-sweetly march on to their final destinies anyway would make my manly tears FLOW. Fudoh why are you the best anime-dad ever ;_;
Wow, & I got the 1st game for $10 a few weeks ago. Rather surprised it’s getting a sequel.
Sweet I was hoping for this! I hope they add Juda, Shu, Ryuga, Amiba, and the Chariots as playable characters.
