In June publisher Tecmo Koei told Eurogamer that Fist of the North Star will retain the Japanese voice-overs when is heads west this autumn.

A spokesperson for the company told us fans had been "begging" for this. Fist of the North Star will also be fully voiced in English.

The game spins the Japanese Manga with a Dynasty Warriors twist. You're a hard-as-nails karate bloke with a bare chest and a weird hand. And you'll be punching through droves of enemies and racking up bloody combos galore.

I vaguely remember the original animation. Wasn't there a bit when a skyscraper fell on a bloke's head, and some guy punched some other guy's belly so fast it opened a hole in it?
