Tecmo Koei is unleashing the full brunt of their Musou franchise at TGS this year.  Their latest trailer is for Fist of the North Star:  Ken’s Rage 2.  Based on the classic post-apocalyptic martial arts anime and manga, the trailer reveals that much more story territory will be covered in the sequel with a longer list of playable characters, including the grown-up incarnations of the protagonist Kenshiro’s sidekicks, Bat and Rin.

The original Ken’s Rage was the first title in the Musou franchise to receive an M rating from the ESRB due to the copious blood and graphic violence that Fist of the North Star is known for.  Ken’s Rage 2 will undoubtedly be the second.  It will be released in February 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and the Wii U.
