fistLooks like Kenshiro will have to rumble with Jackal in Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2. Famitsu mentioned that Jackal will be in the game along with Falco, Colonel, and Devil’s Rebirth. It’s unclear if any of these enemies will be playable, but they’ll be in the game.


Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is slated for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan later this year. Tecmo Koei unveiled the title during E3 and confirmed an international release, but have not set a release date for it.

    Wait, ken’s rage 2 is coming to america?!! I hope bamco brings Jojo’s bizzarre adventure All star battle to america too!!

    • Dexward

      Oof… I can just imagine the horrors of licensing with Jojo.

      • Belenger

        Yeah, I mean I’m all for a Jojo all star NA, but considering they already confirmed Giorno is coming to the game, that single character alone with his stand would make the whole project a hell for licensing, considering how crazy Prince’s about his name.

        Considering “it already happened” for the people that remember that event years ago, now imagine if the game added the character Risotto Nero with the stand “Metallica”, I doubt anyone that hasn’t been around the net for years knows what transpire with them and lawsuits.

        So let’s be happy we get to see Raoh once more.

          I just said to be hopeful, after all capcom managed to get the CPS III one here, it recently got an HD remake , a new anime is coming too and the fighting game hype it’s still strong so I’m very positive it will come to america! :).

          • Its being licensed in America to what I hear. Its odd to me, but I guess they will make it work.

    If nothing else, it’s nice that they’re not just getting the NPCs from the first game, some characters from the second part of the series, and calling it a day. It shows a legitimate desire to expand upon the source material, as opposed to putting in as little as possible to qualify it as a sequel for some quick money.

      Just because they add a new boss here and there doesn’t mean much.  All they have to do is create a skin based on whatever boss and add a few attacks here and there.  If you’ve played the first one you’d know that every boss did maybe two or three attacks.  Big whoop.

      If Ken’s Rage gets as big as Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors does, they’ll just do what they’ve done with those since every release starting with Dynasty Warriors 3.  Add small bits to each new game and sell it for $60.  It’s as bad as sports games how they do it.  But the best thing they do to screw over fans is the Xtreme Legends versions of the games, which is just held off content so they can get another $60 out what should have been included in the first place.  People buy into it, sadly.

    The guy who spent his screen time trying to throw dynamite at Kenshiro while running and claiming it was a martial art… when he wasn’t cheerleading Devil Rebirth from the sidelines?

    What a tool.  I’m going to have fun beating his face in.

    For Jojo I don’t see why they can’t just rename characters that will cause copyright issues. Viz renamed some characters for the US part 3 volumes afterall.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Since Jackal will be in here, I wonder if the game will use the anime or manga depiction of the events. Since in the manga he tied sticks of dynamite to two kids, and while Kenshiro saved one the other died and it haunted him from there on out. However, in the anime he saved both kids due to Toei wanting to tone down the on-screen violence.

    • Valtiel Ikari

      I doubt that they will go for the manga depiction, soccer moms will be all over the game if that happens. Hell, they would probably start World War III if they ever saw the PSX Fist of the North Star game, whit it depiction of childs getting poisoned and killed whit knives.

      • Spirit Macardi

        I dunno, FotNS is unknown enough in the states that I think it could pass by easily. I mean, Shin Megami Tensei games come over without incident, and many of those give you the opportunity to team up with the devil and fight god.

        • Valtiel Ikari

          But that is entirely different than the depiction of a kid being grabed by both arms and getting killed by a butcher knife slash to the chest or a kid getting blowed up whit dynemite.

          But who knows, maybe they will take the risk, I actually hope they take the risk, I want FotNS in all it’s super-awesome-manly-happy-gory glory!

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Really impatient for the game, since it will be inmensally upgraded from the info I have collected around the net.
    And all the people that wont get this game when it’s realesed… you are all already dead.
