New Fist of the North Star Game Coming in 2010
At a special press conference, held on October 14, 2009, Konami Tecmo revealed their latest project named Hokuto Musou.
Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken), which was a popular manga in the 80s with a respectively amount of anime and motion picture adaptions since its debut, will now have its own game based on a Dynasty Warriors-style of gameplay. In the newly-announced game, the main protagonist, Kenshiro (or Ken as he is often named) fights countless hordes of enemies using his special martial arts techniques.
That being said, Tecmo also revealed that they're going to provide the game with two storylines: one that follows original source material from the manga, and an alternate storyline. Fans are greatly pleased, knowing that they can now take charge of Kenshiro himself and actually attack enemies, knowing that from the lethal blows their bodies will swell up and explode causing a rain of blood.
While this isn't confirmed yet, it is implied that Kenshiro won't be the only playable character in the game. Additional information on other playing modes or techniques have not been revealed yet.
The game is coming out for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime next year. Unfortunately, it is not known if the game will make it outside of Japan but it's still a bit too early to tell.
