New Ninja Blade Footage Has Far Fewer QTEs

In From Software’s eyes quick time events can be used for anything in Ninja Blade. Combos, throwing wires, and even making Ken land gracefully are all done with a little help from QTEs. Outside of those there is an actual game to play. Here’s a look at Ninja Blade’s frantic giant beetle fights and blue shadow dashes.

    Fuck the haters, this shit looks tight

    The game looks mad good, aside from the main character looking a little cheesy for a ninja.

    The beetle reminds me of the volcano turtle boss in Ninja Gaiden 2, at least it prompts you to dodge here, instead of just blowing up in your face w/o telling you what to do (who would think that you needed to press block).

    It don’t look bad at all and the demo was quite a bit of fun. I am sure it will be a solid rental, but I can’t see it being anything close to Ninja Gaiden 2.

      That’s true, Ninja Gaiden 2 would be pretty hard to beat, the action is frantic and just perfect. Somehow I see them as different sort of games, even though both have ninja. It feels a little Heaven Sword-ish. Still interested though.

    The game reminds me Shinobi for the ps2, the character shadow when is running.
