Game Music - Fist of the North Star

Hwataa! Hi everyone! After an evening of playing the Fist of the North Star game for PS3, the boss fight music got kinda stuck in my head, and I can't get it out. Well, to be fair, it's basically just an instrumental rearrange of the opening theme from the anime, but it's just so damn epic, in my humble opinion.

The game is quite similar to Dynasty Warriors in many ways. You control a fighter who moves through the battlefield completely demolishing the enemy troops and go toe-to-toe with some fearsome martial artist bosses. And it is awesome. Based on the anime (which was based on the manga) with the same name, Fist of the North Star tells the story of Kenshirou, a martial artist who travels a post-apocalyptic wasteland searching for his lost lover, all the while fighting for justice in a lawless world.

In the game, whenever you fight a boss who plays a key role in the story, this music starts playing, and it gets you really pumped up to kick some butt!

"Ai wo torimodose" (Take back our love)

I've been playing this game a lot lately, and I definitely recommend it if you are a fan of Fist of the North Star, Dynasty Warriors, or just want a game where you can make people's heads explode by poking them. ;)
After all, if you pick a fight with Ken, you are already dead...

Until next time, have a good day!
