Hokuto no Ken, it means no worries for the rest of your days ...
Koei recently sent over a handful of screenshots
from its recently announced video game adaptation of the Fist of the North Star
anime series, Hokuto Musou
, which is due out in Japan in 2010. Thankfully for those of us who aren't manga aficionados, these screens were accompanied by a brief primer on the series' plot. We won't bore you with the entire premise
, but instead offer you this highlight from Koei's description:
"Channeling their energy into a single deadly blow, players can strike their victims and cause them to violently explode on screen. Gamers can also let loose with Kenshiro's signature move- a ruthless flurry of ferocious punches, triggering the instantaneous breakdown of internal organs, and death."
