    Why I Made This FAQ:
    
    
    I made this FAQ because as a fan of Hokuto No Ken (Fist of the North Star) I 
    believe that information should be out there on how to play a fighting game 
    made from the Anime.  Although this game is not as good as Hokuto No Ken 6 
    before it, Hokuto No Ken 7 does need to be recognized.  It is a fighting 
    game modeled after Street Fighter with many moves and characters.  Fans of 
    the series will recognize there are tons of Nanto fighters and only two 
    Hokuto fighters which is interesting.  Hokuto No Ken 7 is a fighting game 
    for fans of the Anime but still worth acknowledging.  The moves and match 
    ups are interesting and that's the whole idea.  The game doesn't really have 
    a story like the first one, Hokuto No Ken 7 was made for fans to play their 
    "Dream Matches" with the various characters that are in the game.
    
    What You Should Know About Hokuto No Ken:
    
    Hokuto No Ken is an Anime known as Fist of the North Star in the United 
    States and as different titles in several other countries.   The story takes 
    place in a post-apocalyptic era where the entire world is in ruin and 
    technology is no longer of use.  The world is plagued by ruthless thugs 
    preying on the weak so they can obtain food and water.  Amidst this chaotic 
    struggle for life exists Kenshiro.   Kenshiro is the master of Hokuto 
    Shinken (North Dipper God Fist) and this deadly martial arts style is 
    capable of destroying a man by triggering pressure points in the body.  The 
    opposite style he encounters is Nanto Seiken (South Dipper God Fist) which 
    focuses on destroying the body from the outside.   He journeys to rescue his 
    true love Julia from Shin, a Nanto Seiken fighter who became jealous and 
    abducted her.   That is basically the central premise of the story but of 
    course it soon becomes more than that.  For more information please join my 
    club at http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/fistofthenorthstargames and my members 
    and I would be happy to help you if you have any more questions.
    
    
    Gameplay:
    
    The game plays pretty straight forward.  If you played Street Fighter you 
    should have no trouble adapting to this fighting game.  The only difference 
    is that you have an energy bar that builds up beneath your health bar that 
    can give you three different super attacks.  You can choose to let the 
    energy bar go up to perform the super attack you would like by pressing the 
    R button, or you could use that energy to perform a barrier to an attack 
    using the fighter's aura.   Either way the spiritual energy that comes in 
    battle is useful nonetheless.
    
    Up:  Jump
    Down:  Crouch
    Left:  Move back/Block
    Right:  Move forward
    A: Strong Kick
    B: Kick
    X: Strong Punch
    Y: Punch
    L: Barrier
    R: Super Attack
    START:  Pause
    
    There are three different modes of battle: Story, Battle and Freeplay. 
    Unfortunately in Story Mode you can only use Kenshiro, but in Battle and 
    Freeplay you can play as any of the fighters except for the bosses Heart and 
    Fang.   Note that although the energy bar may go a little slow in Story Mode 
    it goes much faster in Battle Mode!
    
    
    Fighters and their Moves:
    
    
    
    Kenshiro
    
    The Savior of the Century's End...he is the man with seven wounds on his 
    chest and is the legendary Hokuto Shinken successor.  Guided by strange 
    fate, love and sadness reward him with the ultimate fighting skills.

    Rating:
    
    Although much more lean and cut in this game than he was in Hokuto No Ken 6, 
    Kenshiro is still the Fist of the North Star!  He's probably the best 
    fighter to use of course.  He can now do two different Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken 
    attacks and can even do a Hishou Ujou Kyaku which is a mid-air multi-kick 
    attack which is very useful.   Kenshiro has a wide variety of attacks such 
    as fireballs and energy fist attacks.  But he still has the same old bag of 
    tricks including the Shichishisei Ten and his Musou Tensei which 
    unfortunately doesn't look as good or lasts as long as it did in Hokuto No 
    Ken 6.  But still, Kenshiro is the best fighter to use.  Use him mainly 
    offensively but he is also a great defensive fighter.
    
    Raoh
    
    The oldest and tallest of the four Hokuto brothers, he is the Conqueror of 
    the Century's End. To be the strongest
    man on earth, he has discarded all emotions
    including love. His ambition is to rule to Heavens!
    
    Tenshou Honretsu: Y (rapidly)
    Mousou Insatsu: Down-Away, Toward + B, later Y
    Zankai Ha:  Toward, Down (X or Y)
    Myoudan Touken: X(rapidly)

    Goutou Bakuka:  R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Musou Tensei: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three
    
    Rating:
    
    Tough as ever before and now with more moves to be bludgeon the enemy with.  
    He has his multi-hit Tenshou Honretsu and for a Super he can do a Goutou 
    Bakuka which is a super multi-hit fist attack that increases his range by 
    combining his fists with energy.  Like in the series, Raoh, too can perform 
    Musou Tensei just like Ken but with the same dismal results.   Use Raoh 
    offensively at all times, he is very powerful.
    
    
    Shin
    
    He is one of the six Nanto Seiken fighters and he
    represents the male martyr star and is the successor
    of the Nanto Lone Eagle style. He steals
    Kenshiro's fiance Julia because he lives for
    love and is destined to be martyred by love. The
    seven wounds on Kenshiro's chest were engraved by
    this man.
    
    Gokuto Ken:  Down-Toward + B
    Ko Ha Ryuu: Toward (X or Y)
    Kikei Ha:  Away, Down-Toward (A or B)
    Nanto Tensou Kyaku:  Toward, Down (A or B)
    Gokuto Juuji Ha I:  Down-Toward (X or Y)
    
    Gokuto Juuji Ha II: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level One
    Gokusou Juuji Ken: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Tenbu Sosai Ken:  R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three
    
    Rating:
    
    Shin finally appears in a fighting game and he sure proves his worth! 
    Probably the second cheapest character in the game besides Shuu, he can 
    easily bombard his enemies with fireballs and flying kicks leaving the enemy 
    unable to do anything!  Use Shin offensively by repeatedly firing off Gokuto 
    Kens and Kikei Has and doing a powerful super as soon as possible!
    
    Rei
    
    He is one of the six Nanto Seiken fighters who represents the Male Star
    of Justice and is the magnificent successor of the Nanto Swan style. Both of 
    his parents were murdered and his younger sister Aili has been taken away.  
    Like a hungry wolf in the wilderness, he is angry and searching for the man 
    with seven
    wounds on his chest.
    
    You Satsu Ken: Toward (X or Y)
    You Shou Kyaku: Down-Toward (A or B)
    Hishou Hakurei:  Jump + X
    Yousou Kyakubu: Down, Up (X or Y)
    You Sou Ha I:  Away, Toward (X or Y)
    
    You Sou Ha II: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level One
    Hishou Kouryuu Geki: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Danko Sousai Ken: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three
    
    Rating:
    
    Rei returns for more a second time and this time has more aggressive moves!  
    He can attack mid air with the Hishou Hakurei and has many fireball and 
    charging attacks.  As before his supers are great and do lots of damage.  
    Definitely a great offensive fighter! Give him a shot!
    
    Shuu
    
    He is one of the Six Southern Cross Holy Fists who represents the Male Star 
    of Virtue and is the successor of the legendary Nanto
    White Heron style. He is destined to live for
    the hope of the future... there was a time where
    he removed his sight to save a young Kenshiro's life. He is a
    very deeply loving man.
    
    Res Satsu Ken: Toward (X or Y
    Hakuro Hishou Kyaku: Down-Toward (A or B)
    Hakuro Tensou Kyaku: Toward, Down (A or B)
    Hakuro Senbuu Satsu: Away, Down-Toward (A or B)
    Hakuro Shu Ha I: Down-Toward (X or Y)
    
    Hakuro Shu Ha II:  R button when Aura gauge reaches Level One
    Hakuro Gou Kyaku: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Rekkyaku Kuubu: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three
    
    Rating:
    
    Shuu finally appears in a fighting game and is definitely worth a shot!  
    Like Shin, he has a host of moves that you can do repetitively making him 
    the cheapest fighter in the game!  You can do any of his moves repeatedly 
    and the enemy will easily fall.  Again, another great offensive fighter!
    
    
    Souther
    
    He is one of the Six Southern Cross Holy Fists who
    represents the male star of leadership and is
    the Nanto Phoenix successor.  He is also known as the Emperor.
    To separate himself from the time when he was a young
    child and loved his teacher, he has a love for sadness.
    Therefore, he doesn't love and hates it.
    
    Hou Zan Geki:  Toward (X or Y)
    Hou Bu Kyaku: Down-Toward (A or B)
    Hou Yokusei Kyaku:  Charge Away, Toward, Down + B
    Houou Tensou Kyaku:  Toward, Down (A or Y)
    Kyokusei Juuji Ken I:  Toward, Down + X
    Houou Shouten Kyaku I:  B or A rapidly
    
    Kyokusei Juuji Ken II: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level One
    Houou Shouten Kyaku II: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Tenshou Juuji Hou: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three
    
    Rating:
    
    The mighty Souther emerges once again as the most powerful Nanto fighter to 
    choose from.  He also has the same cool Egyptian theme from Hokuto No Ken 6! 
    With his fast gliding abilities and invulnerability to ordinary moves make 
    him the best fighter to pick from.  He must be played defensively which is a 
    lot of work.  If he gets hit with a special move his invincibility will no 
    longer work and ordinary attacks will then be successful, so be sure to 
    avoid every special move the enemy does and defeat them before they can 
    touch you.   His supers are wonderful and can easily destroy the enemy.
    
    Juuza
    
    Juuza of the Clouds is one of the Nanto Goshasei. He is
    a man without restrictions and loves freedom.
    
    Shou Tou Haisui Ken: Jump + X
    Gekiheki Haisui Kyaku: Away, Down-Toward + A
    Fun Sai Ken:  Toward, Down-Toward (X or Y)
    Hensou Yuui Kyaku:  Toward + B, Away + A
    Gekiretsu Haisui Ken: Toward + Y, X
    Sei Zan Geki I:  Away, Toward (X or Y)
    
    Sei Zan Geki II: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level One
    Hishou Ryuukai Geki: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Two
    Gekiheki Haisui Shou: R button when Aura gauge reaches Level Three

    Surprisingly the free spirited Nanto Goshasei fighter, Juuza of the Clouds 
    made it to a fighting game!  With his free spirited style you will find 
    mastering Juuza very difficult.  His moves are not pulled off easy and most 
    of the moves are unusual and will be hard to work into the scheme of 
    fighting.  He does have some excellent moves, even a move that resembles 
    Ken's Hyakuretsu Ken.  A good fighter, but takes a while to figure out.
    
    Bosses:
    
    Fang (Kiba Daiou)
    
    He is the leader of a group of thieves with sharp fangs and claws like 
    wolves known as the One Fang Tribe. Their lightning fast Chinese skills, 
    which everyone one them train under,
    is known as Splendorous Mountain Angle Resist
    Play in which their moves draw and flow like water.
    Everyone of them have a weapon.
    
    Rating:
    
    Unfortunately you cannot play as this boss, a code has yet to be found to 
    enable the use of Fang.  From observations he seems to only have one special 
    move which is simply throwing one of his Fang Clan members at you.   When 
    his energy meter he can do a skin hardening technique like he does in the 
    series but all he does is freeze up and when you fight him you can easily 
    knock him out of his invincibility.
    
    
    Heart
    
    His flesh is flexible like a gummy substance,  it can wrap and bond a 
    person's fist so that it can't escape. He is a man well known for his fist 
    destroying skill.
    
    Rating:
    
    Unlike Hokuto No Ken 6, you cannot play as Heart.  There doesn't seem to be 
    much going on with him but a few punches he can do.   He also doesn't seem 
    to have a super attack.
