Special report for eight people who might care, from our "Man in Japan" (it took us a week to think up that clever way of describing our Japanese correspondent).

Did we just not notice it as students or is Fist of the North Star... you know... really gay?

Excellent news for fans of Sega/Sammy, 2D fighting games and watching Channel 4 while piss-drunk at two in the morning. Sega's Fist of the North Star is here, and it doesn't suck! Even though a Fist of the North Star game that doesn't suck probably violates some kind of international law, let's take a look at it.

Like, really, really, really, really gay?

It plays well, and to make it more Fist-ey they've implemented the Guilty Gear instant kill system only now you have to wear your opponent down before it'll work. That's good.


Overall score: David Bowie out of ten.

Whoa I am just watching the original series and now I come here and see this game... Unfortunately arcades in Germany suck so I fear that I won't ever see it, if it doesn't get ported or emulated.

Actually.. Black Belt, back in SMS days, was the western release of a Hokuto no Ken (fist of the north star) game, and that doesn't suck... so yeah... how come you don't know that SEGA-related information? This saddens me very much.. :(

The fighting mania fist of the north star games in the arcades are fucking class! The series is great. Don't listen to wankers who say its shit because they like animes that are up their own arse.
