Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage erupts on November 2


Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, the manga-based, Dynasty Warriors-esque action game about punching and kicking absolutely everything until it explodes, will be in North American stores just in time for an exceptionally violent holiday season. Tecmo Koei just announced a November 2 release date for the post-apocalyptic thug tenderizing game.

Ken's Rage allows you to play through the manga/anime storyline, or a "Dream Mode" that steps outside of canon, with a cast of characters including Kenshiro, Mamiya, Rei, and more, all of whom are guaranteed to be brutal enough to make you feel bad about playing video games.

Tecmo Koei America is pleased to announce the release date for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, the new action-packed title based on the popular manga series Fist of the North Star. Currently set for release on November 2nd, 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms, players will soon unleash a whirlwind of martial arts fury torn from the pages of the seminal manga tale.

In Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, players assume the role of Ken, a man with seven scars on his chest and the chosen successor of the legendary assassin's art known as Hokuto Shinken. Sworn to protect the weak and innocent from malicious gangs roaming the post-apocalyptic planet, players use Ken's trademark moves to decimate enemies on his quest to find his long-lost love.

Tearing through the scorched landscape, manga and action fans will pummel their way through dozens of enemies at once and crush obstacles in their path, using them against their foes. They will execute blistering finish attacks in faithfully recreated environments ripped straight from the comic legend. But Ken doesn't need to fight alone – he's joined by an unforgettable cast of playable characters from the Fist of the North Star universe, including Mamiya and Rei, among others.
