In a press release this morning, Tecmo Koei announced that the brawler based on the classic manga would not be getting a disc-based release when it hits the Wii U in February. The Wii U version of the game came in late in the development of “Ken’s Rage 2,” although to what extent this impacted the plans for a disc release, it remains unclear, however the 360 and PS3 versions will receive normal retail releases.
The “Dynasty Warriors”-like brawler is a sequel to 2010’s “Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage” and will cover the storyline of the entire manga featuring esoteric, bloody martial arts styles in a nuclear war-ravaged future. It will be available on the 360, PS3, and Wii U on February 5.
