Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 is an action Wii U game. It is the sequel to Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage game, which was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010. Outside of Japan, it was only released on the Wii U eShop.
Though the gameplay in Ken's Rage 2 remains similar to its predecessor, the game serves as a departure from Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage in that it is much more in line with other Dynasty Warriors titles. Enemies come in considerably larger hordes, and movement and combat have been vastly accelerated. The option to jump has been removed (save for certain situations where the game allows it) in favor of a dodging system, something that not all characters could do in the first game. Signature Moves are no longer announced mid-battle in order to keep gameplay flowing at a constant rate, and the various Hyper Moves have been dropped or merged with the characters' movesets.
The story portrayed in Ken's Rage 2 is was featured in the original game, only greatly expanded upon. In addition, the game covers all of the chapters that take place after the end of the first game, with the exception of the arcs that featured Raoh's orphaned son, Ryu, and the saga of the succession of Sava kingdom.
