Hokuto Musou has been unveiled a bit in Japan this week, and the new Fist of the North Star game is an action affair due to land on PS3 and Xbox 360 in the land of the rising sun during 2010.

According to 1UP, it’s a Dynasty Warriors-style game taking place in the world of the manga and anime series, and while details are still very minimal, the gameplay seems consistent with the Warriors style of play.

Characters confirmed so far include Kenshiro, Raoh (Kenshiro’s adoptive brother and nemesis) and Yuria, Ken’s fiancee.

A release outside of Japan has yet to be announced and the teaser site still has an October 14 date attached to it.

Hopefully, Koei will reveal all tomorrow.
