Even thought the AI looks as dumb as a plank I'm such a fan of the TV and movies I'll have to buy it.

Remember kids, hokuto shinken always wins.

Most badass fucking intro of all times :D

I wonder if the sluggish battle flow was because of the player or you're bound by end of attack animations. It looked really poor.... hoping for the best.

I really do think its a shame that the gameplay looks so bad, cause i kind of like Hokuto no Ken, and the concept is basically perfect for a fast paced action game. Now i haven't played it myself ofc, but from the video i get the feeling that the controls might not be very responsive and that is pretty much a dealbreaker for me. If we get it over here (Europe i mean) i might check it out, but i don't know, i'm have no high hopes for this one :(

Completely agree, it will play like poo and the plot is no different from the 30 year old series. Fingers cross Sega decide to do an RPG.

WOW, I will not buy this game for the simple fact that the main character looks like such a flaming faggot, pardon my expressiveness. Why would any dev make their hero look like this??
To begin with it's based on an old manga and anime that is close to 30 years old, and Kenshiro is just about as classic as a Manga/Anime characer gets i'd say. Mad max and Bruce Lee in one, how much more badass can you possibly get? :)

I'm not trying to defend the game but at least whine about the stuff that deserves it.

Not impressed probably some time later in the year I will consider picking the Dynasty warrior game instead :p

That is NOT mad max and bruce lee in one lol. But yeah, the more important things are the lack of depth in gameplay and simplistic AI judging from the video.

I don't think he is quite as gay as you want to make him out to be though. Perhaps the team developing this didn't really make the character justice and I mean...the hair? That's just how hair looks in all anime and manga :P

Do yourself a favour and go on youtube and watch some Fist of the North Star. You will quickly see the Bruce Lee and Madmax influence.

Whatever you do, do not watch the live action.

Dude the movie sucks balls, not to mention the horrible english dub :)
I mean...trying to shove 100 episodes worth of story in to a single movie is a pretty bad idea. Not saying that there isn't any filler in the series, but well...i think you get my point. And the dub sucks, can't take it seriously for a second with those cheesy english voices :P
This is how you should enjoy it --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFppkEv7Bjg

I think the main dude is badass in fact I think thats the only good think about this videos he is like the word badass in a dude form XD
Commented on 2010-03-25 20:53:15
Cool intro but lol at the part where he blows his shirt off, too bad the gameplay graphics look crap.

The AI looks very suspect also :(
Commented on 2010-03-25 21:33:35
I'll be picking this puppy up... gameplay looks fine to me, it's a brawler! Kenshiro is one of the slower characters until you unleash his flurries... but there are faster characters... i don't expect the AI to be amazing on the 1st level, you'd just get your butt kicked, plus they actually form formations and what not... thats pretty cool... looking forward to more vids of this game... the Musou series is an acquired taste i guess...
Commented on 2010-03-25 23:12:59
Looks like the same brain-dead AI in Gundam Musou. It was a fun distraction, for when you just want to kill 1000 random mooks when you've nothing better to do...but that doesn't look like a $60 purchase.

Damn shame, too. The two franchises were practically made for each other.

I loved the movie, actually saw that before I watched the series. And of course JP version > US version

lmao Korea!

you guys are aware that the camera in this mode very likely isn't the one you'll have in-game, right?
Commented on 2010-03-26 11:23:11
I've just uploaded 3 gameplay videos, the 1st 10 minutes and 2 other videos showing various moves as well as Ken Shiro's famous killing moves.

I still need to play God Hand...

Hit detection its awesome though I will give it that,punches and kicks have some awesomepowerfull weight to them giving the power of that badass main character.
