Sweet, with this, and OP: PW, I think we're set on anime beat em ups for a long time :lol: (a few months at least)

Also, affinity, it might be better to just keep the title as "Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2" to keep it a bit more organized, seeing as this is now the official topic

Agreed, I enjoyed the first one, hopefully this one is longer, and has more characters...I 100% completed the last one in 42 hours or so heh

Though umm...Kaioh is another Hokutou brother? But...STUPID EDITORS :lol:

HNK2 really has one of the most epic stories. At times even more emotional than HNK1's arcs while introducing some amazing new fighting styles and shocking realizations of the origins of Hokuto Shinken.

Yeah, guess it helps that I never read the manga, or watched the anime, meaning I am literally getting my story from these games :lol:

Though do they explain where the 5th Hokuto brother comes from at least? :lol:

Oh they explain EVERYTHING and then some!! :lol: And technically, Kaioh's style is Hokuto Ryuken and they grew up in a totally different country (land of Shura).

Kaioh is Raoh and Toki's biological brother.

The anime is available for free on Funimation site I think. HNK2 entirely is worth it.

Hopefully they explain it in detail in this then, since I really don't wanna watch this subbed after liking the Ken's Rage voices...

well we have yet to see if Ken's Rage 2 will have english voices because One Piece PW is going digital only and no english voices (like Warrior's Orochi 3)

Ken's Rage 1 didn't sell well over here so not sure if Koei is going to invest in english voices and disk release.

though it is very surprising they have the trailer in english, the sequel must be farther along than we thought.

The western and Japan release dates might be even closer to each other.

I think them using the English VAs in the trailer is a good sign

OP:PW is also being released by Bandai Namco, not Koei Tecmo, seeing as they own the rights, and don't seem to like dubbing OP games (might be because of the Funimation VA requirement)

Ken's Rage sold more than Warriors of Troy, so it might have a chance of being dubbed...WO3 wasn't dubbed because of the whole 135 character thing

This is an unexpected surprise! :o

I still need to play the first, but I know I'll enjoy it and this eventually since I'm a FotNS fan. :lol:

Be warned that the first starts boring because of how boring Kenshiro is compared to the rest of the cast (Yes, even Jagi and Mamiya)

As for this, I'm kinda excited, seeing as they'll most likely keep with the dub, and I'll get to finish FotNS's story :lol:
