Wii U gamers to get Fist Of The North Star 2 first

But it will only be available on Wii U as a download

Tecmo Koei has revealed details of their upcoming anime-themed release Fist Of the North Star 2: Ken's Rage including release dates.

The latest game includes new Legend mode that is designed for fans and newcomers to the classic manga. It includes re-imagined versions of Raoh, Celestial Emperor and Land Of Shura with players controlling a different character in each episode.

There's also over 20 playable characters, dynamic new moves, new Dream Mode with new original storylines and online co-op and head-to-head play.

The real big news is that Fist Of The North Star 2 is coming to retail on PS3 and Xbox 360 but not on the Wii U.

It is coming out as a download on the Wii U and to make up for the lack of a disc-based release it is out a day early on the Nintendo Network eStore.

Fist Of The North Star 2: Ken's Rage is out on Wii U downloads from February the 7th with the PS3 and xbox 360 versions hitting retail on February the 8th.
