  • StarWarudo

    I was pretty hyped for this game back when it was announced, but after playing the demo I think I will wait till it’s down to 20$. Don’t want to make the same mistake like Pirate Warriors. -_-

    • veruses

      What did you not like about the demo?

      • Piotr Rusewicz

        I also didn’t like demo – it’s like 50% od Ken’s Rage 1 mixed with too many oponents and fighting from arena to arena. Nothing new, it’s boring, and it’s like a bad mod for Ken’s Rage.

        • Budgiecat

          same # of opponents on the screen dont know what you’re talking about. They added more features, online co-op, the upgrade system looks less cumbersome, there’s a save feature finally (THANK GOD) and speed to 60fps how is that boring? Whatever…I don’t get people sometimes…

          >too many opponents and fighting from arena to arena.

          That’s pretty much Legend mode for Ken’s Rage 1 right there.

      • StarWarudo

        Combat doesn’t have the same feeling of impact like the first one did, where you could pretty much feel each attack as you punched a hapless goon in the face and then see him fly into a wall. That’s my main gripe, but there are a couple other minor things I felt turned off from.

        • Budgiecat

          That’s just because it was slower. A lot of people complained about the speed so they upped it from 30fps to 60fps. Pretty impressive leap. I think they added a dash, a dodge mechanic and took out jump.

          • veruses

            Pretty much agree with you(Budgiecat) here. Not gonna miss the jump (means little to no platforming?) the dodge system might be interesting depending how it turns out in the full game.

            One thing has me curious; no air attacks or are they now part of the combos? Guess I’ll find out next month.

            Also notice on the demo Ken can only do one(of two in rage 1) grab attacks.

  • Muffum

    Lord knows I’m just going to play Ryuga and spam the hell out of that vortex move. “Whoop, you escaped? Too bad; back into the combo for you!”

  • Göran Isacson

    I’m going to make a wild guess here and say that Ryuga (and possibl Shuu too) will count as “Nanto” type characters, where as Juza and Fudo will count as “hokuto” type characters, even if their styles are selfmade. Lin and Bat, if they are playable, will probably be “special type”. Looking forward to stomp the opposition with Fudo and Juza though, those guys made me shed the most manly tears of all in the manga ;_;

    • TacoBomber

      Story-wise, Juza and Fudo were also Nanto users, so they’ll probably be classified under Nanto as well. In the first game, there were only four Hokuto users: Kenshiro, Raoh, Toki, and (to an extent) Jagi. Neary all of the playable physical fighters were Nanto. If memory serves correctly, Jagi was actually classified under Special instead of Hokuto in the first game since he used a mix of Hokuto Shinken and guns/explosives.

      Kinda curious where Amiba’s going to fit since his form was a messed up Hokuto rather than pure Hokuto. Can’t remember much else about him.

      • Göran Isacson

        Oh yeah, they were on Nanto’s side (which I forgot, I admit) but the styles they used didn’t have Nanto’s slice-cut everyone into tiny pieces flair: that’s mostly what I was basing my guesses on. But Amiba is playable? First time I heard that! Got any pictures of him or is it just rumors at this point?

        • TacoBomber

          The easiest way for me to remember the differences was just whether people exploded or not. Explosions = Hokuto, everything else = Nanto.

          Somehow, I managed to mix Amiba up with Juda. I’d be surprised if they didn’t make Amiba playable, though, with all the other additions that were non-playable in the first game. This is just speculation, though. XD
