NCS Product Synopsis
Update: March 25, 2010

«©NCSX» In the Hokuto no Ken animated series, the heroic Kenshiro Kasumi wanders the wastelands of the future and plays the part of lawman. Ken battles gangs of bandits and thugs to bring a bit of law and civility back into the world. Kenshiro and company have appeared in a number of games in the past few years including a selection of pachi-slot challenges. Koei takes the Hokuto no Ken franchise and immerses it into their "Musou" game engine which most recently hosted the Gundam universe.

   In Hokuto Musou, Kenshiro battles groups of bare-chested bruisers who wear leather pants. They'll crowd around Ken like a pack of wolves but he can fend them off by punching, kicking, and using the almighty
Hokuto Shinken martial art which is capable of destroying enemies from within. Body blows result in copious spurts of blood which eject from thug bodies and some attacks turn foes into what can only be described as "Sloppy Joes." Without the bread.

From the Publisher
A ravaged Earth struggles to survive after the nuclear holocaust has left the world in ruins. Pitiful survivors band together in communities and villages, trying to live on what little resources they have left. In the wastelands beyond vicious gangs prey on them for their resources, or sometimes just for fun. A mysterious martial artist named Kenshiro, a man with seven scars on his chest and the chosen successor of the legendary assassin's art Hokuto Shinken (????, The Divine Fist of the North Star) has sworn to protect the weak and innocent from the malicious gangs that roam the scorched planet.

Game Features:
• Destructible and interactive environments – In the hugely interactive environments players can smash or pummel their enemies into different objects and buildings as well as pick up objects to maim and obliterate groups of malicious gangs.
• Face down dozens of enemies at once - String combos and attacks together to perform unstoppable killing moves. Power up, then unleash furious Hokuto Shinken special attacks.
• Dozens of unlockable moves - Blistering finishing attacks that can wipe out entire gangs in one blow, or cause single enemies to explode in a shower of gore.
• Hidden characters - Taken straight from the FIST OF THE NORTH STAR universe, players will be able to unlock unforgettable characters such as Mamiya and Rei, amongst others.
• Faithfully reproduced FNS visuals - Every scene and level has been faithfully followed the iconic visual style of the original comic series.
• Original scenarios for every playable character – As well as having their own stories faithfully reproduced from the source material, every character will have a new original story and ending specially made for this game, giving the fans something they could only dream of.
