Koei Tecmo yesterday (29th September) opens the pre-registration for its upcoming smartphone game “Shin Hokuto Musou” (真・北斗無双), which is set to release in 2020.
“Shin Hokuto Musou” is the smartphone version of the “Shin Hokuto Musou”/ “Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2” console game, which was first released in Japan in December 2012. It is also a project to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “Hokuto Musou” game series.
Players will be able to follow the original plot of the “Fist of the North Star” in the smartphone game, as well as the character stories. It shares a similar gameplay with other “Dynasty Warriors” titles. Players have to battle against different enemies, who come in considerably larger hordes.
Multiplayers contents, including Guild and Arena, are also available. The Challenge Mode allows players to battle against much stronger enemies. New characters that do not appear in the console game will also be playable in the smartphone version.
