In the wastelands following the great nuclear war, a legend grew...
In the post apocalyptic future, violent gangs prey on villages who struggle to survive on what little vegetation remains on the earth. Four brothers protected the innocent, built armies and trained in the martial art of the North Star known as Hokuto Shinken, a legendary fighting technique which gives impossible strength and endurance, attacking an opponent's 108 pressure points to cause destruction from within.
According to the art's law, only one successor per generation can inherit the deadly art of Hokuto Shinken.
Before the youngest of the brothers, Ken, claimed the title of the Fist, there was another master trained in the art of Hokuto Shinken, the King of the Fist, the Divine Fist of Heaven: Raoh.
An ultimate assassin, the ultimate warrior...inheritor of the North Star.
Legends of the Dark King is the story of the world before the anime classic Fist of the North Star (1986) and prequel to The Legend of Roah (2006) - how one man took the future of a savage world into his deadly hands and reshaped its destiny, not as a hero but as a conqueror. For in the mind of the man called Raoh, the only way to save Mankind is to grind it under his giant heel! The greatest battle is about to begin in Legends Of The Dark Kings: A Fist Of The North Star Story!
