Fist of the North Star 2 gets punch-happy Wii U screens

Friday, 14th September 2012 16:12 GMT By Dave Cook

Fist of the North Star was a badass anime back in the day, and the games are just as violent and bizarre at times. That definitely wrings true in the latest back of Wii U screens released into the wild by Tecmo Koei. Check them out below.

Thanks AGB.

    Man, Nintendo are really trying to take Japan from Sony at the moment.

    With the 3DS on fire and the dual release of Monster Hunter then the enevitable Pokemon Wii U and 3DS games, they are going to be printing a LOT more money soon.

    Then there’s Wii FIt U and NSMB U coming out at launch…

    Man, I predict Nintendo games will fill the top tens till about July next year! ;)

    Surely this bodes well for Nintendo’s promise of catering to the core? Now show me some shooters please :-)

    I think developers are going to love the fact they can develop for the Wii U without a crazy amount of cost compared to next gen.

    Kinda like the 3DS compared to Vita… We can see how thats going.

    I think Japanese devs will really like this business model and we will see a lot of games go to Wii U over PS4 and 720

    @3 I think you really might have a point.

    It def could happen.

    By the time PS4 / 720 come out, the Wii U will have a pretty huge install base.

    Devs will have to make the choice:

    Let’s say a new Kingdom Hearts game for example…:

    Do we put it on the PS4 (MS consoles don’t sell in Japan), that costs a huuuuge amount to develop for and will have a limited install base for a few more years.

    Or do we put it on the Wii U, easy to develop for, maximum profit can be generated as it has a big install base, and it’s huge in Japan…

    It could be another case of 3DS over Vita all over again…

    Just an idea, but it’s happened before…

    I think we’ve got to the point graphically, where games like Kingdom Hearts, etc… Can still look amazing on currant gen hardware, there’s not a need to upgrade so much.
