Okay I originally mentioned in the PS3 Online Lounge, but I thought I'd mention it here for those who are fans of Hokuto no Ken or want to get into it (but don't want their eyes to bleed from the extremely dated animation as the series originally aired ages ago) and have a PS3. I didn't mind HnK's dated animation, although at some points in the series I thought I got stoned off of my ass somehow without the use of any substances because the moment was so freaking trippy looking (I refer MAINLY to Toki's first use of Hokuto Ujou Hagan Ken as one of those "trippy moments").
That last sentence was a tidbit off topic, but ANYWAYS, Koei gave Hokuto no Ken the same treatment that Gundam got and gave it a Dynasty Warriors game called Hokuto Musou. BUT WAIT, the game has absolutely astounding graphics and gameplay that are far beyond the bar set by previous Dynasty/Samurai Warriors games. Not only that, but the game also covers the entire Hokuto no Ken story. You get to beat the living shit out of thousands of enemies as HnK characters AND you get the whole story without having to watch the series. Players in Japan LOVED it and there's so much demand for the game internationally that Koei has set a US release date for August (I didn't double check on an EU release date yet).
Now the US and EU localizations of Hokuto Musou will have the same Japanese voice actors (thankfully Koei decided not to hire mediocre VAs to dub the characters this time) or at the most give an option to use English or Japanese voiceovers (like they did with Dynasty Warriors Gundam). So far from what I know it's a PS3 exclusive and there won't be any ports (sorry 360, Wii, and PC folks).
So if you have a PS3 and you want to get into Hokuto no Ken but don't feel like watching the 103 episode series (though I encourage it because it's a heck of a cult classic), Hokuto Musou is your game to check out. It's already out in Japan, but unless you understand Japanese and don't mind reading it, it's better just to wait another 2 months for the US release and buy it if you're in the US and import it if you're in the EU region and you don't feel like waiting any longer.
Speaking of Hokuto no Ken, I think I might rewatch that series again. I wonder if any vendors at Otakon will have a box set or something...
