like the style, not a fan of suda's games though. find their too weird for their own sake. they're typically pretty damn archeic when it comes to control too. but hey, at least it looks cool.

Visually it's probably the most appealing game that i've seen in the last 6 years (since Crysis 1 to be precise). And how can IGN dare to declare Yaiba/NGZ to be a next gen game when this is current gen that does look even better than that.

Love everything about this game, gore, gameplay, art style, main charactyer design is inspired as hell, everything is amazing.

Ni no Kuni, a new Naruto game around the corner, and now this... For anime fans current gen ALREADY is like a wet dream come true, no need for a next gen really. All of these topped out my highest expectations in terms of visuals. Not a big fan of anime tv series though (especially Naruto), just only of the big budget movies.

Really like the visuals effects in this one and going by gameplay describtion it sounds great and those acrobatic moves looks great.
I need pure gameplay of the combat but trailer showed promise.

Fantastic use of colors too. Main character looks like your typical high dress code male anime guy, just with a robotic arm and a typical katana, nothing special...but could be worse hehe.

Never played Suda game so I dont know how that will turn out, that and if it will show up in the west.

Honestly, i can kinda see what they are going for with the art style, but imo it just doesn't carry through especially well. Much like MvC3 or something like that it just ends up looking like shit, not cartoony or comic bookish.

Oh, look..SO original ;)

Kidding aside, the game does look cool :)

I love some cool art design,but i hope suda 51 creates some killer gameplay to back it up.The whole storyline is really you fighting to be killed again by ryu.I hope they make it interesting somehow,knowing how it's going to end and all... or do we?

looks simular to the new NG game... only you can bet that one has playable controls....doubt NG will have any parts in it where you suddenly start random masterbating with things though...so swings and round abouts i guess
Commented on 2013-01-19 09:08:57
Thats Ninja Gaiden Z you guys are talking about, this one is different looking than NG Z though.

Also having Ryu as a boss...bring it.
Commented on 2013-01-19 21:57:17
You just know that this is going to be good
