    Oh sweet. I’ll download when I get home.

  • XypherCode

    Tried it. Kinda cool. Dialogue not so much though.

  • Prinny Dood

    Downloading now heh heh heh heh

  • dam4rus

    i was surprised how good this game is… the trailers were a little underwhelming and the graphics are almost PS1 quality, but the combat and level design are pretty good

  • InfectedAI

    Been looking forward to this. They had lots of trouble localizing it so I’m glad it made it.

  • sd28

    not the greatest game ever but i actually had fun with it unlike the 3ds castle Vania game.

  • Cameron Ward

    the game has a bit of a retrovania clunky feel to it, but i like the combat, but they need to loosen up the movement speed a little.

  • KnifeAndFork

    Game felt like a cross between Claymore and I Will Protect You for NDS…

    it may not have that great of a name but this is one sick game ;)

    The demo was promising, the game mechanics sound fun. There are many combo varieties and slashing ennemies feels good. The time mechanics can be used for interesting purposes, in combat or for puzzle platforming a la Braid.

    I advise you to give this demo a try! ^^

  • Ben Green

    played the demo. it’s trash

  • Ric Vazquez

    It’s pretty good for a eshop only game

  • J_Joestar

    The gameplay is quite fun, but the aesthetics feel kind of drab and what we’re shown of the story isn’t particularly gripping either.

    • Oniros

      Well, IMO the first 5 words of your sentence is what matters the most.

      • J_Joestar

        yeah, but the healthy mix of everything would be better. Lack of the other two are pushing it from a must have, to heavily considering but may wait for more reviews first territory.

  • Oniros

    The gameplay was surprisingly good. I’m looking forward to it.
