Examiner: The latest Famitsu issue reveals that a new Fist of the North Star (known as Hokuto no Ken in Japan) game styled after the Dynasty Warriors series will be heading to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
hmmm i hope its a lot damn better then dynasty warriors since they really only have to focus on one person KENSHIRO hopefully Raoh and Laoh are playable
AAAATATATATATATAATTATATATATA WATAAA! You're already playing it
Kenshiro is the bomb. :o I remembered the anime from a long time ago. Really bloody, lol. x3
I hope that it lets us punch one guy and then his head explodes.
RAOH FTW :)
From Japanese blogs,default usable characters are: Kenshiro, Yuria, Raoh, Toki, Thouther. Which means there will most likely be unlockable characters too.
Did someone mention my name?
lmfao. I was thinking i wonder if there is a Raoh on N4G =p Kudos to u for having such an awesome name +bubbs
it good might consider
Man im so hyped for this!! I just hope you can make heads explode (fingers crossed) and then i will be as happy as a pig in sh!t.. Tough boy, Tough boy, Tough boy, Tough boy!!
This game better be rated M.
*screams* The fighting game?! :o MUST-BUY! *reads* Modeled after Dynasty Warriors? Well, still, a must buy. :)
ooooooooooooooooh crap...I think I need a new pair of pants. I need to see more NOW!
PS3 fan boy in Japan are also expected
I still have my OOP english DVD movie :)
First day, Hokuto no Ken is one of the best series evar!
If this game succeed it will be the next MK lots of blood and gore
Ken is strong in Shonen Jump. This game better be good!
Most of the Hokuto no Ken games I've seen were 1 on 1 beat em ups and none of em were too great, which is a real shame as I loved the anime. I remember the Megadrive title as well which was dubbed Last Battle (I think) many moons ago. I remember completing that one but man it was BAD! I think Dynasty warriors style could compliment Kenshiro pretty damn well. Loads and loads of enemys reeling back and exploding in a bloody mess a few seconds after you've hit them. If they do it well, this could just be the type of game to do the series Justice! ... You're already dead!
Don't know if this is widely known but Street Fighter's Ryu and Ken got their names from that Anime.
don't watch this if you haven't seen Fist of the northstar yet http://i33.tinypic.com/2s9r... that's called Hokuto Shin Ken, it makes your head xplode :P
a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure game xD Ora ora ora ora Ora ora ora ora > atatatattatata
I thought the capcom ps1/arcade (did it come out on Saturn?) title was pretty good. Yet I've never seen a decent FotNS game. I'm hoping this title will change that.
I used to love watching this series! Outlaw Star & Ronin Warriors also.
Have some of you ever played some of the past fist of the northstar games? From the NES days all the way up to the PS2 era almost ALL of them sucked on every system. Unless they somehow upped the ante on this game, it probably isn't much to get excited about. Love the Anime series, oav, and animated movies of this, but the games do NOT to the series justice.
I agree, all the FotNS tiltes I've seen or played were either pretty bad or down right appalling. But this is a different style for a Fist game. All the others I've seen have been 1 on 1. The megadrive title was similar I guess albeit in 2D. If they can get the movement gameplay down to something similar to DW / NG / DMC / GoW / Bayonetta... Smooth with a lot of move variety/combos and can have the enemeys erupt in the usual Fist of the north star fountain of blood it would be a winner in my book.
I want to play this on xbox Kenshiro: You're already dead And then the xbox got RRoD
