    I do hope they are serious about using twitter questions from people as material for this little webseries, though I’m guessing there won’t be much of a chance for English questions. At any rate… I do see what people were talking about, the large amount of enemies seen on the screen and the ease they’re dispatched with looks very reminiscent of Dynasty Warriors style… but combining that with what looks like platforming (albeit very guided such, almost reminds me of Sly Cooper), riding motorcyles (cyborg-zombie ninjas ON MOTORCYCLES!) and other influences at least makes this one seem like it won’t be a TOTAL bore.

    Aaand I guess the last part of the video is reassuring for those hoping for Tecmo Koei to maintain their regular fanservice levels, even if they haven’t designed the lady character yet. A whole lot of nothing in this video, come to think about it: I wish they would have at least told us more than just how far along in development they are, maybe say some wrods about Yaiba as a character, what kind of gameplay style they’re aiming for, etc.
