The demo, and this joke, are already dead.

Tecmo Koei has released a demo for Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 on PlayStation Network in Japan.

Available now, the demo offers a full playthrough of the story mode’s “Z Invasion” chapter, and a portion of the “Anger with the Heavens” chapter.

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on December 20 in Japan, February 22 in Europe, and February 26 in North America.

    What makes this so popular?

    Any females? that aren’t extremely buff? lol.

      Since when did a series need females to be good? I think Hokuto no Ken was an epic series and not once did I ever think to myself, “I wish more females were present.” That’s not really the point of the show.

      Much like Legend of the Galactic Heroes. There are only a handful of important females in that series, but that didn’t make it any less amazing. Also, to answer your question… Lynn is playable and she’s not buff at all :|

      • Kazziyan

        Lol you know me, TH :p Needs females for it to be good, for me! in general though, I’m not a fan of the overly buff (well, I consider them overly buff…) design. So was wondering about my options :O

        Lynn huh? *searches* Not bad..

          Oh, Kaz-chan. You so crazy :3

          • Kazziyan

            True enough. xD

            • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

              Geez. Just noticed how many downvoted comments there are. We got an Internet Hate Machine on our hands here.

              DOWNVOTES

              DOWNVOTES EVERYWHERE

              • Kazziyan

                I dislike this system the most rofl.

                • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

                  Yes, it’s really awkward. Previously, I could just click and get redirected to new replies to my comments, but now I can’t do that any more. It’s… Pretty lame.

                  The only way I could even get to your new posts was by visiting your profile page.

                    I personally like many of the things the older Disqus does better. Not to mention how god awful slow they seem to be at updating it.

                    You should be able to get replies to comments by clicking My Disqus under the post box, and then click the notifications tab.

                    For the record, I’d like to see them do away with the up or down vote, I still prefer the old way where a user can like the post. I hope this post helps.

                    • Kazziyan

                      I’m also having trouble viewing comments on mobile. It just won’t scroll – iPhone 4. o_O thanks btw.

                    • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

                      Hmmmm… I’m not to sure about the mobile stuff. I’ll have to ask Sal about that. I’ll try to get back to you asap.

                    • Kazziyan

                      Kk thanks. Hope it’s not just me.

      • Marco Tinè

        Your mention of Legend of the Galactic Heroes has considerably raised my esteem of the whole Gematsu community :)

        • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

          Heh. Well, it IS my favorite anime of all-time after all~!

    • MrKappa

      It is blasphemy that you do not know the greatness of Hokuto. That is like not knowing the greatness of JoJo or DBZ.
      Are you even human?

      • Kazziyan

        Never heard of JoJo either, actually.

        I know DBZ though.

        • Kobracon

          Well good news, a JoJo anime just started not too long ago. Its a great starting point ^_^ 

          If you enjoyed DBZ, you will love JoJo.

      • Kobracon

        Forgive him, for he knows not what he types.

    • Kobracon

      Theres one female I know of. Unsure if there were more female fighters in the series.

  • LordKaiser

    I liked this demo way more than the first. I say this is a vastly improvement that it may have to do with the Tecmo touch. It’s quite good I say.

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    How did I miss this.
