Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 Announced By Tecmo Koei

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:


  • Altritter

    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.

  • Dzo

    So much awesomeness!!! Had a lot of fun playing the first ^^!

  • Godmars

    Can only ask that its not a dud like the last one. 

  • Spirit Macardi

    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 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.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

       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 >_>

    • GVmanX

       Do you ever stop? Is it your mission to complain about DW games wherever they are mentioned?

  • cjeromek

    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!!!! 

  • haku67

    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.


  • Jack Frazee

    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~!

  • LynxAmali

    B-B-But my wallet…

    It was already dead.



    • boundries_san

      The moment u fall broke, u are already dead.

  • Muffum

    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.

  • countupyoursins

    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.”


      The above is an exact quote of how idiots would react to that message and also why we can’t have nice things. :)

  • eilegz

    already dead, hope it features online multiplayer coop, and better graphics.

    Using classic costume too since the new one looks kinda weird

  • Hating Ass Nigga

    Hope it features more than 8 characters,there were more NPCS in the previous game than playable characters.

  • GVmanX

    What’s the first day I can preorder this?

  • Sperium3000

    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.

  • thundergodCN

    Rule 1 in surviving the world of Fist of the North Star,  don’t get a mohawk 

    • boundries_san

      Lol. The moment u even think of that rule, u are already dead.^^

  • Göran Isacson

    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 ;_;

  • Zonic505

    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.
