Kenshiro’s Enemies Are Playable In Fist Of The North Star: Ken’s Rage 2

judA tidbit of Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 news comes from Famitsu. Juda (pictured), Fudo, Shachi, and Shu are now playable characters.


I wonder if Tecmo Koei will make "Humiliate Kenshiro" achievement so the self-proclaimed beautiful emperor can get his revenge in Ken’s Rage 2.


Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is slated for a December release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan.

    Well, at least they’re listening to fan demand from the previous game. Find it strange that they’d confirm Fudo and Shachi over Jyuza, who was probably most requested behind Juda and Shu, but it’s a step in the right direction.

    • Rarutos

      Jyuuza was apparently the first new playable character confirmed last month!

  • Valtiel Ikari

    hope the combat improves, Fist of the north star deserves a better combat!

    • Sardorim

      Apparantly it should play more like a traditional DW game now with much longer range on attacks. Combat is said to be faster too.

        Nice to hear, still, to this day, I think the only ones that could pull out a Fist of the North Star game would be Platinum Games or the guys that did Naruto ultimate Ninja Impact.

        But it’s nice to know that Tecmo Koei are taking players feedback to improve the things that needed to be improved, maybe they will pull it off better this time around.
        Can’t wait to go all ATATATATATATATATATATATATA…. omae wa mo shindeiru!

       They said they’ve now included stuff like dashing and “evasive actions”, which should speed things up.

  • Spirit Macardi

    It’d be nice if they could get Bin Shimada to reprise his role as Juda for the Japanese track. They missed out last time, but they got him to voice Wapol in One Piece: Pirate Warriors so maybe there’s some hope.

    I’m happy Fudo, Shu and Jyuuza are playable. :D

  • thundergodCN

    How about the random giant gorilla in the first anime opening. That would be godlike.

  • Jack Frazee

    Can’t wait! Ken’s Rage was easily my absolute favorite Musou-style game. If they can improve on it like they’ve done with each of the Gundam ones, this should be even better.

  • About time Shu was made a playable character. Dude always seems to get short-changed when it comes to the Hokuto no Ken gameverse.

    Most of all, I hope the game has more depth to the Story Mode and doesn’t completely skim over important cut-scenes like the first one did. It was little too arcadey for my liking. 

  • Bentan

    can’t wait to atataatata that clown Juda!

  • Göran Isacson

    I can play as Fudoh and Juzah. Everything is manly tears and nothing hurts… wait.
