This is Hokuto Musou in its truest form. This game is a re-imagination of the existing title. Characters resemble their manga and anime counterparts even more, and fans of the series can live through the earth shaking battles they have seen. Fight the Hokuto, Nanto and the Special way, but personalize your style as you develop your character. The Legend Mode returns, but it will be expanded to include even more content. The Dream Mode has more scenarios for the recurring cast. Some of these are written specifically for this game to explain the origins of Hokuto Shinken to add to the depth of the series.

A great time for Warriors fans and North Star Fans Alike
Based off the reboot of a classic franchise, Fist of The North Star: Ken's Rage 2 tells the classic tale of Kenshiro and the enemies he faces along with the friends he makes with Warriors style gameplay (since it is by Koei Tecmo after all). Luckily with this version, there isn't much of a language barrier since it is a pick up and play type of game. There are moments where you are graded on your performance in gameplay depending on circumstances like being able to clear out enemies at a short amount of time or protect fellow allies without losing anybody or without reaching low health. It's a much appreciated change of pace and challenge from the norm with Warriors games. One thing that keeps it from being a 5 star item for me is framerate. Though it is playable, there are moments where framerates become annoying as it might drop below 30 at certain points like with too many enemies on screen or some specific cutscene. Something I think should be updated through some sort of patch as the Wii U hardware is more capable than an Xbox 360 or PS3. Luckily, it does not make it to a point of freezing as these low framerate moments are scarce through the experience. Speaking of cutscenes, it swaps between a standard cutscene, to comic book style panels. You also have moments to play as various characters throughout the story as well as leveling up key areas like strength and health as you progress throughout the stages. Not to mention you can find chests with skills to add to your core character to add more of a boost when in combat. Overall, I do recommend it to anyone looking to add a new title to their Wii U collection if you don't mind not having English. However, if English is a must have for you, I'd suggest the PS3 or Xbox 360 ports which were released in the states and Europe. Also, if you can't deal with the framerate not being at a smooth 60 fps constantly, I'd go for a PC port.

For the fans of Hokuto and Musou.
"Shin Hokuto Musou" successfully adapts the Musou mechanics to one of greatest classic fighting manga/animes ever made. Even if you are not a fan, following Kenshiro's main plot campaign might turn you into one. Tons of characters and content means you will be keep coming back for it time and time again. Add online multiplayer to further extend the longevity and it stands proudly as one of the finest Musou entries on the Wii U. Recommended, even with the sometimes odd frame rate drop here and there.

Great Game
For the fans of the anime / Manga series this is a must have.
It is possible to play the entire story of the manga, plus very fun online mode.
