        i thought it was a team up with capcom?:0

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          well Keiji Inafune is involved and Spark Unlimited is also the dev for Lost Planet 3, but I don’t think Capcom is actually involved in this.

    the protagonist is interesting. he’s kind of funny. doesn’t seem to be that serious.
    Like the cel shading.
    Also you should’ve uploaded this 15 articles ago :D

  • TheCrimsonSpeed

    This looks delightfully over the top. Color me interested!

  • Jesse Torres

    The intro doesnt really correlate with the game, who is yaiba, how is he connected to ryu.

  • 60hz

    combat looks a lot better than what i’ve seen earlier – still haven’t seen anything truly unique but i’m interested..

  • Göran Isacson

    The trailer made the cobat seem a mite stiff, and I had some problems seeing what the heck the player character was doing, but I guess that’s to be expected since they’ve said they’re going for a more Dynasty Warriors feel here, less control, a lot more flashy chaos.

    Still, I do like the graphical style and while Yaiba seems a bit crass… the fact Ryu actually owned him and the game will most likely NOT try to paint him as some sort of super-cool anti hero, but more along the lines of a crass thug who WILL get his ass kicked for his bad personality, has me interested in how the story will turn out.

  • Rafael Budzinski

    …a cyborg ninja against hordes of zombies? Man, this is like the “Blood Dragon version” of Ninja Gaiden. And it’s awesome!

  • isotrex

    You don’t mess with Ryu Hayabusa. The protagonist in the game will probably just die again… against Ryu. hahaha j/k.

    The game looks interesting. At least now, we get to see some actually in-game footage.
