FotNS: Ken’s Rage 2 trailer gives manliness +10Posted 10:00 am on Thursday, September 20th, 2012 by Michael Revis
Because the world always needs more Kenshiro, Tecmo Koei released a new trailer showing off Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2, the sequel to 2010′s entry into the musou genre. Well, maybe not so much a sequel, as it feels more like an expansion to the original game.
Ken’s Rage 2 is planned to expand on the first game’s content, not only encompassing the original storyline, but portraying Kenshiro’s journey to the land of Asura as well. The character roster is also being increased, allowing for new playable characters such as Fudo, Juza, Falcon, and even adult Bat and Lin. Overall, it looks to be a more complete package than the previous game, with more content overall.
The previous game had received mixed receptions, particularly in the west, with critics often citing the wonky controls and extremely slow pace, which is contrary to the swiftness that Kenshiro and crew normally exude. Tecmo Koei seems to be looking to remedy these issues and offer a stronger experience than before. Ken’s Rage 2 is currently set to release in NA in February 2013.
