Hokuto Musô images

Hokuto Musô images

You certainly know that Koei is currently developping a new Fist of the North Star game entitled Hokuto Muso. Some new images have been released and they show that, not only will we be able to play as Kenshiro Hokuto, but also as several other key characters, such as Jagi, one of his three brothers. The game has not been announced outside of Japan, where it will be released on March 25 on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Update: We also added all the images that have been released so far.

Fist of the North Star ? LOL ! I remember having seen nearly the entire first season of the series in a french children's TV broadcast (Club Dorothée) when I was 14 years old. :-D And in the UK the Anime is rated 18... LOL !

Of the old screens, pic 19 just asks to be pedobear approved.

Aside from that and the last gen textures and graphics in general... This game is going to be AWESOME! XD

Looks no better than Fallout.

Kind of cool that you get to play as characters other than Kenshiro in a game based on Hokuto no Ken. I think the art style has carried pretty well in to 3d as well. I never thought i'd say this but it looks kind of neat :P

Yeh fallout is like a PS2 game port. I'm a huge fan of FOTNS, but the game footage just looks terrible, the dumbass A.I makes the game appear slow, clunky and extremely repetitive. I hope they use some of the original Japanese music, throw in some of the UK drum n bass for bonus.

I'm on the fence, character model quality is all over the place and the area's look very empty but it could turn out to be interesting.

looks like it'll be fun! I hear it's 4 player online as well...

But let's get it straight though, since it's koei i guess the gameplay will consist of activation turbo and duct taping the buttons down until you have a combo of 1000000, right?

Also, a bit of nerd-trivia/whining: Kenshiro's last name is not Hokuto as implied by the poster :P

As a general fan of the combo hypnotics of the DW series, I'm looking forward to this quite a bit. As Jolli was saying the art style carries over remarkably well, and I'll be sure to grab a mate and tear through this when it comes along.

Wait, a niche game doesn't have the production budget of a triple-A title? You wa shock.

    Melmoth @Moonwalker: The design is pretty much locked down 18 months before a console hits the shelves. you can change things like voltage, frequency and the amount of system memory, but not the APU design. (10 minutes ago)
