Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 arrives in the US on February 5. Siliconera reports the brawler will be available in stores for Xbox 360 but only via download for the PlayStation Network – likely due to SCE America’s localisation policies, as with Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires. The sequel boasts a Legend mode which takes in the whole manga storyline; a Dream mode of original stories; more than 20 characters; and co-op or versus play. It arrives in Europe on February 1. Wii U launch dates for both territories are still to be determined.

Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires will see physical retail release in Australia and Europe but will come to the US via the PlayStation Network only, Siliconera reports.

Expect the strategy-lite hack-and-slasher in all territories in February; the US launch has been re-dated for February 26.
