Kengo Zero scan

Kengo Zero scan

Famitsu Weekly also had a few screens of Kengo Zero, the latest installment of the Kengo series, developed by Genki. It doesn't look like it will be a graphical showcase for the 360...

I like Samurai ... Only problem is like WW2 games that there are just too many samey games.

These kind of games always goes to the Playstation world, so its kind of cool that Xbox gets one to. But the graphics isnt exactly appealing as Blim says.

It's *only* samurais and swords. The devs also worked on the first 2 bushido blades games.

would be nice if Capcom could bring us 360 ownder Ominusha series ^_^

Genma Onimusha was on Xbox, so who knows. Maybe something will come to the 360.

Yup, Kengo is a spiritual successor to Bushido Blade!

Has there been anymore news about Way Of The Samurai Online? I read that it was announced for the 360 then there has been nothing on it since.

Bushido Blade was awesome, got to remeber this title for sure
Commented on 2006-06-22 15:45:27
Bushido Blade was a samurai simulator, a fighter in essence were you could kill or be killed in just one strike, it was great :)

Is this Okamoto's game?
Commented on 2006-06-22 17:06:22
I like it, its non-anime look, almost as akira kurosawa movies, if graphics improves and if fighting is reallife this could be sweet.
Commented on 2006-06-22 17:31:35
I would've liked the anime look far more :(
Commented on 2006-06-22 17:40:45
but EVERY other 360 japanese game is anime!
Commented on 2006-06-22 17:56:38
these japanses devs never seem to put much heart into there games really do they, i mean great there making games for the 360, but you know, put some soul into it try and give it SOME freshness

or else we are getting 720p ps2 games ....

roll on dead rising "HAIL CAPCOM" *them bieng the only ones who put thought into there games*

At the moment they don't have the budget or the experience to keep up with the Capcoms and Konamis, let alone first party titles. Don't forget most of these Japanese companies are coming off the back of PS2 development which means they have little to no knowledge of shader usage.

Looks okay, but really can't make any kind of judgement on such little screens.

Bushido Blade was awsome though, someone needs to make another sword fighter like it.

This game reminds me of genji.

Phew thats a relief because I want to see a much cooler looking game (something very anime like from whatever Okamoto has planned for the 360) This is good the 360 is definetly getting some decent support so far. Basically even ps3 developers will have to start using shaders now due to the rsx.

About the game


What's up?
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (2 Hours ago)
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche @KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (3 Hours ago)

    Nietzsche but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (5 Hours ago)
