Hokuto Musou Europe Release Date

A Europe release date for the upcoming Koei game, Hokuto Musou (English title is TBC), has been announced, the European version of the game will be release in the Autumn this year and if your a Dynasty or Samurai Warriors fan, you may love this just as much.

The game is based on the classic anime series, Hokuto no Ken (Fist Of The North Star) in which you will see the story of Kenshiro fight to save his wife from the wrath of a evil overlord, set in a post-apocalyptic timeline, much of the world is in ruins and its become a fight for survival.

I have to warn you, the anime is EXTREMELY gory, lots of blood and guts so it’s not for everyone, especially not kids or teens but by the looks of Hokuto Musou, it doesn’t seem that bloody, probably half of gory as the anime so it maybe more suitable for a wider audience .

The game itself is very similar to that of most Warriors games, possible repetitive button pressing so its one for the fans only.

Possible playable characters confirmed:

  • Kenshiro
  • Rei
  • Mamiya
  • Toki
  • Shin
  • Jagi
  • Souther
  • Raoh

There is also Heart and Outlaw but its not announced if they will be downloadable content or as part of the package. There will be more DLCs for this game in the coming future after the game’s release, I have heard of a young Toki dlc recently been released in Japan, just wondering if any of it’s dlcs will also be available for the European version.

The game will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360, game modes include: Legendary, Illusionary Match, Challenge and Introduction modes.

Since I’m a mad fan of the series I will be getting this without question, if you don’t get this on release, you’re already dead!
