Fist of the North Star game has useless motorcycles in it

Most Koei games make it a point to show that riding things is pointless. Dynasty Warriors and other related titles all include the riding of horses, but the only reward for a player choosing to do so is death. Riding a horse is a death sentence, because anyone who jumps into the saddle will quickly find themselves occupying the same space as a million billion arrows/musket-balls/spear-points. If you want to get somewhere fast in a Warriors game, you run and hope to find a "Speed + 30 sec." power-up.

Hokuto Musou's (aka Fist of the North Star Musou) newest trailer (visible below) fails to prove my impression of mounted travel wrong. In fact, the character riding a motorcycle is almost immediately knocked off of his ride. Why bother, right?

However, the trailer does succeed in showing of many characters with some gory, over-the-top special moves. Like kicking a bunch of dudes so hard that they start to inflate and explode in a shower of blood. Yes, I don't know how that's physically possible, but that does not stop it from being awesome.

Also, check out the ad for a premium edition at the very end of the trailer. It comes with a talking alarm clock!
