A new batch of screenshots for Shin Hokuto Musou (known as: Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 outside of Japan) have been released, showing off new playable characters as well as returning ones. The new ones featured in these screenshots are as follows:
These were all (unfortunately) NPC characters in the previous installment, so I am very glad to see they are playable this time! I should note there are some spoilers for the series in these screenshots, so if you haven’t seen the anime, read the manga, or played the first installment of the game, then you might want to avoid looking at these. Shin Hokuto Musou is scheduled to release on December 20, 2012 while an overseas release has been planned for February 2013.
