Gamefly Says Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage Is Coming To North America


Hokuto MusouNo, this isn’t much of a surprise, but at least it’s more or less official now. A Gamefly listing has confirmed Hokuto Musou for a North American release, albeit without a release date. A European release, under the same name, is scheduled for Autumn. Perhaps, we’ll see it then.


Back in April, Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage enjoyed a fantastic debut in Japan, raking in 385,000 units on the PS3 alone in its first week. Between a Nintendo-published Samurai Warriors 3 and Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage, Koei already have two relatively big games scheduled for overseas release this year.
