Just as Mad Max and Bruce Lee inspired Hokuto No Ken, Hokuto No Ken inspired many anime and videogames, including Final Fight, Street Fighter, Dragonball Z, Jo Jo Bizarre Adventure, Godhand, etc.

Might be the biggest and most indepth story mode in an action game, with the largest cast of legendary characters.

I'd say it's a priviledge that Xbox360 is getting this localized in the west (and 2nd chance for X360 community).

In my opinion it's really proving to redeem the series and stand above all other action games, while holding the most replay value and entertainment for single player AND multiplayer action gaming too. :)

So is this going to be XBLA download only? Or are they coming out with a retail version?

download only,

If the first one sold at least as good as Naruto UNSG in North America, it could have gotten a retail release, but yea, if profits don't prove to be decent in one region, companies can risk less money going digital for the sequel.


I mean just imagine if franchises like Call of Duty series or Naruto UNS series sold terribly, their publisher would have no option but to sell them digital only based on the small demand

So the only way to get this will be GoD?

Do you like the taste of meat in your mouth?

Seems like it, and digitally, people could save up to $10 compared to retail version or importing. Though I think Ken's Rage 2 will appear in the primary XBLA new releases list, since it's not a previously released sequel.
