Fist of the North Star Online RPG's Info, Pics Posted

Post-nuclear world to feature martial arts, bartering instead of money

MediaWorks' Dengeki news website has posted new details and pictures for GungHo Online Entertainment's Hokuto no Ken Online (Fist of the North Star Online) massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) in Japan.

Just as in Buronson and Tetsuo Hara's original fighting manga and the subsequent anime projects, the game takes place on Earth after nuclear war has reduced society to a barbarian existence.

There will be no fee for basic gameplay, but users can pay real-world money to obtain special in-game items.

A closed-beta test will begin in December, but no date has been set for the official opening.

The closed-beta test will preview four occupations that players can choose for their characters: Hokuto-Monkasei (North Star Disciple), Nanto-Monkasei (South Star Disciple), Rogue, and Street Performer.

Player can fight other characters by using the keyboard buttons to punch, kick, or guard, and the mouse to direct actions.

To stay faithful to the story setting, there will be no in-game money system — instead, players barter for items at shops or with other characters.

A video that was screened at Tokyo Game Show 2007's TGS Forum had previously been posted on the game's website.

Here is a selected TimeCube.com scripture: "2 opposite hemispheres (as in plus and minus), that would cancel each out if unified as an entity. There is proof that all humans exist between the 2 opposites of femininity and masculinity, and would cancel each other out if unified as academic or religious "singularity" - equating to stupidity and suicide for humanity."
