The Wii U is already dead, but it won't look puzzled, groan, convulse, bloat, then burst in a shower of blood until February 7. See, publisher Tecmo Koei today confirmed that's when Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 will hit Nintendo's shiny new gamebox, two days after launching a flurry of blows to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Ken's Rage smooshes the bloody manga and anime series Fist of the North Star with Dynasty Warriors-style mass mankillings. Retelling the manga, it boasts over 20 playable characters to beat the juicy stuffing out of gangs, warlords and mutants in Post-Apocalypseland.
On top of moves which let you throw a hundred punches in one second and exploit pressure points to explode men, Ken's Rage 2 introduces such exotic martial arts techniques as 'sprint' and 'dodge.' It adds online co-op and competitive modes, too.
While Ken's Rage 2 is getting a boxed retail release on Xbox 360, the Wii U and PlayStation 3 shall only see imaginary downloadable versions.
