Publisher Tecmo Koei has announced that the upcoming action game Fist Of The North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 will be coming to the Wii U in addition to other platforms. Tecmo Koei released the official poster of the game, revealing a “Wii U” logo at the bottom, and later confirmed in a statement that the game will be released on Nintendo’s new console in February 2013.

Fist Of The North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is a sequel to the original game which was released back in 2010. It’s a beat’em-up action game based on the Warrior’s series (Dynasty Warriors), which itself was based on the Japanese manga Fist Of The North Star. It’s very complicated if you’re not already into the series, but the original game was well received by fans, even if reviews were mediocre.

You can check out some crazy gameplay from the original game here. You can also find the official posted of the game below:

    Looks pretty good. I never played the first, but that does give me a reason to do so.

    • jon

      why has the guy on the front cover (presumably ken) got bullet scars on his chest?

      • Anon

        I don’t then they are bullet holes.
        I think they are finger holes where someone pierced his skin,
        in an attempt to kill him.

      • tron

        I’m not sure, but you could find out by watching Fist of the North Star. It’s an old anime from the late ’80s.

    • Majin

  • RAS310

    How come the Wii U logo isn’t accompanied with the Nintendo Network logo like PSN/XBL are? I doubt that means no online for the Wii U version, but why isn’t it on there?

    • Herox95

      Oh Idk. We has to wait and find out, maybe they have a different plan for Wii U?

      • smallNdeadly

        Or Nintendo hasn’t shown its online logo yet…I haven’t seen it

        • RAS310

          It’s the same one currently used on some 3DS games. Look up “Nintendo Network” on Wikipedia.

  • Jetty

    • Majin

      Can’t tell if troll, or just stupid.

  • SteampunkJedi

    I’ve never really played games like this, so I’m not sure this game is for me. But if it’s a good game that many people get, then I’m all for it: More great Wii U support. 😀

  • Smilesprower

    Going back to the SNES days where everyone was supporting.

    Good to see ye back on track Ninty.

  • millz

    No there not bullet holes (although they look like it) they are in fact finger holes someone called shin did it to him with the fist of the south star techniques. I am a big fan of the anime but not the games as I don’t like DW but glad Wii u is getting support that it needs

    • GamerJ

      If they are finger holes, then the dude that did that had F#$@D up hands because that is the most unko pattern I’ve seen for finger prints.


    I played the PS3 Japanese version. Im all over the Wii-U version when it comes to the US! I wish it would be out by Christmas 🙁

  • GamerJ

    Red evil dude in the BG looks like Shredder from TMNT…. just sayin.

    • Majin

      That is Kai-oh, if I remember correctly.

  • millz

    shin used both hands to poke him

  • Arsonist Monkey

    Sony and Microsoft are already dead!


    “Sony and Microsoft are already dead!”

    I see what you did there. 😉

  • Majin

    I didn’t even read the article or the comments.

    But I must say.

    Yes. Yes…YES YES YES!

    Best anime ever.
