By Spencer . October 5, 2012 . 1:48am

imageTecmo Koei set December 20th as the release date for the Wii U version of Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 in Japan. The other systems won’t be declared dead because that’s the same release date as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.


Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 has the same content in all three releases aside from Wii U GamePad functionality for the Wii U version. The game also supports the Wii U Classic Controller Pro.

    The launch line-up of the WiiU gets better and better

  • StarWarudo

    I don’t want to wait till Feb for this game to be released in the west, but I don’t know an ounce of Japanese either so that I could import it. ;_;

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      Hard to import a Wii U game since it’s region locked~.

      • StarWarudo

        Who says I’ll be getting it for the Wii-U?

  • Craig Mikucki

    That Wii U sure is something. It is getting more and more games I want on it and yet I still have no intention of buying it. Impressive.

    • Then what are you waiting for? No really, what are waiting for? I bet you’ll be buying one sooner or later.

      • Craig Mikucki

        Probably not. I am happy with what I have. Also a pile of unfinished games. Also lack of funds….sigh

    • StarWarudo

      I feel the same way that you do. 

  • Spirit Macardi

    I was initially planning to get the PS3 version, but screw that now! :D

  • HpR

    If you don’t get this game, localized or not, you are already dead.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      That is going to be the most scary game advertisement lol.^_^

  • neo_firenze

    I feel so wrong that Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper and Ken’s Rage 2 are two of the titles I’m most excited about for WiiU… but I can’t help it! :)

    Needs some US release date confirmation!

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      No love for Wonderful 101 there?T_T

      • neo_firenze

         I didn’t say I don’t want Wonderful 101 (or Bayonetta 2, or Pikmin 3, or NMSB U), I certainly do! But that’s not much of a surprise, as it seems most people interested in WiiU have some interest in those games.

        What is more of a surprise is my somewhat unhealthy feeling desire to use my brand new WiiU console to… play WiiU versions of multi-platform Musou games?  But it’s true!  I can’t freaking wait for either one.

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Ohh thats what you mean and yeah i understand there.^_^ As i also feels that i am going to get this one for Wii U lol. Even though it is musou type game which i played like since my childhood lol.^_^

  • eilegz

    cant buy this… my wallet its already dead :(

  • omeganeko

  • Chippel
