Tecmo Koei Europe
today announced that Fist of the North Star
, an action game based on one of the most widely-recognized manga and anime series of all time, Hokuto no Ken, will be available in Europe. The game takes place in the manga's post-apocalyptic world where the remaining survivors of a nuclear holocaust roam the wasteland in an ongoing struggle against marauding tribes for food and water. Taking the role of Kenshiro, gamers will unleash a myriad of devastating fighting techniques and finishing moves powerful enough to bring down whole buildings. 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. Eleven new screenshots
