At first glance, it’s apparent that Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 has a lot in common with the Tecmo Koei's Musou series (Dynasty Warriors, Warriors Orochi, Gundam). This is even more so than the original game.
In case you didn’t know already, Fist of the North Star is a Japanese manga series that was written by Buronson and drawn by Tetsuo Hara. It was originally published in Weekly Shone Jump from 1983-1988. To this day, the popularity is still strong among the Japanese manga readers and as a result, we get Ken’s Rage 2.
