The Wii U eShop has been a bit of a slow burn. While Nintendo pushed the idea of same-day digital releases for many of its games, there’s really only been a handful of titles that have taken advantage of the service. Although some have held reservations about the Big N’s follow through on this particular subject, it looks like the promise is indeed going to be delivered, as Koei’s upcoming Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 will be released digitally through the eShop the same day as its retail counterpart.
Ken’s Rage 2 is a beat ’em up in the vein of Dynasty Warriors, and is a follow-up to the 2010 cult favorite. The game boasts an expansive roster of over 20 playable characters, new story arcs not found in the manga and a more refined, kinetic brawling experience compared to that of the original.
Be on the lookout for the game’s release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U February 7.
