    That doesn't change the fact that the game looks damn nice.

    I guess SF3 animation has spoiled me.

    hopefully it will be over-the-top violent. the SFC games were pretty tame, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a versus fighter license of hokuto no ken.

    ever play the american NES fist of the north star? their heads pulsate and explode, although in crude 8-bit form. its better than the censored mess that was Last Battle.

    Looks great! I've recently started reading the Fist Of The North Star manga, so I can't wait to play some of the epic battles from the series.

    Why is it is laggy? No smooth movements.

    Maybe this will become me third game I will buy for the Atomiswave. I now only have Blue Dolphin, which was a bit disapointing, and first want Neo Geo Battle Colleseum when it goes down in price. But this game iwill be third in my wantlist. I am only a bit disappointed that the Atomiswave lacks support as I think it's a really good budget system.

    I admit that I'd rather have a new Guilty Gear, but hey, Fist of the North Star deserves a decent fighting game. I wonder if they'll let you play as the little girl who carries a flower around and makes violent tyrannical overlords change their evil ways.

    Indeed. Doesn't the system run about $400, with the games starting at the same price?

    Well at least the Japanese version wasn't censored. Man I loved Last Battle...I know it was crap to many people, but I think it was great. I'm dying for a sequel...
