Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 Loses Local Co-Op, Gains Team Battle Mode

The first Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage was an alright-ish brawler that was good enough for many fans of the franchise. It featured super powered martial artists from the popular manga series, following their bloody adventures as they literally punched and kicked their enemies (and each other) into bloody chunks. Out of all the licensed games I have ever played, it's definitely one of them. The game supported a two player split screen mode that left our reviewer, the esteemed Marc Allie, wanting more. The sequel, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2, has upped the co-op ante with online support, but is has lost local play in the process.

New Screens and Video for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 is still happening. I actually picked up the first game and played through a few levels. It's not bad, but it fizzles after a few hours. The fact that Ken and Company handle like bulldozers doesn't help. The upcoming sequel is supposed to address the problematic controls and several other issues. Fans of the magna and anime should keep tabs on this one.

More Bloody Screens from Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

These new Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 screens feature four new playable characters. Yuda, Fudu, Shachi, and Shuu will each be making an appearance in the sequel to the Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage. The super-violent, ultra-cheesy, so-bad-it's-almost-good beat'em up did well enough to earn a second installment. As flawed as the first game was fans still flocked to it. You can't keep a good fanatic down.

The Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 Announcement Trailer and New Screens

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage is getting a sequel. Yes, I'm serious. Wait, where are you going? Hold on, it could be good! Cleverly called, "Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2," it should pick up where the 2010 beat'em up left off. We were not overly impressed by the original, but fans of the series must have spoken with their wallets, because Ken's Rage 2 is indeed happening.
