Tecmo Koei have released a new batch of upcoming hack and slash title, First of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 at Gamescom in Germany this week.

The game is set for a release in Japan sometime this December on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and an international release is expected not too long after. The game will have twice the content found in the original, and enhancements to the gameplay have been added including a dash and evade technique.

There’s also a “provocation” mechanism which will provoke enemies to attack your character, just incase the onslaught of evil armies wasn’t overwhelming enough for you. Also released was an all new trailer for the game;

Finally, the game’s story will unfold in a “comic-book” style fashion. You can check out all the latest screenshots below!
