Fist Of The North Star Liquefies The Competition In Japan

Tecmo Koei's latest beat 'em up Hokuto Musou—also known as Fist of the North Star 'round these parts—went all "Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!" on its Japanese rivals this week, with the PlayStation 3 version of the game pummeling competition, sales-wise.

The latest Musou-style brand of big brawling game is sitting pretty at the top of the Media Create sales charts, flexing its oversized pecs at last week's winner Yakuza 4. That gives the PS3 a rare first and second place showing in the country, a streak quickly broken by Nintendo, with Pokemon Ranger, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Tomodachi Collection rounding out the top five.

Just after that is Kratos' latest adventure and the Xbox 360 version of Hokuto Musou.
