Next month, Tecmo Koei will release Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage in North America. Aside from English voice acting, the version of Hokuto Musou we’re getting has a number of changes from the Japanese release.
Japan won’t miss out on these additions because Tecmo Koei is re-releasing Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage as Hokuto Musou International. Fans who pick up the game get: English/Japanese voice acting, more gore, different enemy placement, revised bike controls, and a new stage to play.
Tecmo Koei has Hokuto Musou International slated for December 2 and it’s priced like a Greatest Hits at 3,990 yen ($48). While Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage was a multiplatform game in Japan, Hokuto Musou International is only for PlayStation 3.
