Ninety-Nine Nights 2 images

Konami announced today that they would publish Ninety-Nine Nights 2, still exclusive for the 360, and released these 5 images. Quite a change of mood compared to the first episode.

Looks alright...but my money still goes to KuF II. I've never seen pixels that sexy (yes, i am a graphics slut)

Looks darker and more serious than the first one, and I like it alot.
Hopefully they improve what was left of N3, and they should fix more combat moves and polish the game up.

This time, Konami is publishing the game, so I hope they release it on PS3 as well.
I am planning on buying a 360 sometime in the future, maybe in 2010, but I need some serious great exclusives within my favorite genre to pick one up, so I hope this one delivers.

My guess is that there will be some sort of a trailer for this game at TGS.

Feel Plus is a Microsoft developer, second party if you will. Dont see this going anywhere but 360 and maybe PC

Feel Plus did a tremendous job on lost odyssey, they have already a strong source on the original in wich to me is where the brainless hack n' slash Dinasty Warriors type of game should moved, but its full of idiotic design issues like no mid-level saves.
I have high hopes to get a solid hack n' slash from here.

So which one is it? :)

Anyway, I think it's still Microsoft's game, they're just letting Konami publish it, like they did with Square Enix and Infinite Undiscovery.

From the official site...

Ninety-Nine Nights is a trademark of Microsoft Corporation.

Well I do tend to buy a 360, but it depends how many reasons within my favorite genre there is to speed up the progress.
Hopefully this game will be one of them, but even so, I am sure we won't see it until end of 2010 or something.

It was actually supposed to come out this year in Japan, but since there's been no mention of the release date today, I presume it's been delayed. Late 2010 seems a bit much, though.

Eh, I liked it better with a female lead. Unless they fix the gameplay (half your hits didn't even register in the original!) and leave the original audio track intact, I'll be skipping this one
Commented on 2009-09-02 21:34:48
Like i said, looks much better than the first one, darker and more serious tone to it.
I just hope there are some color variations in different levels though.

I hope TGS has something for us with this game, really want to see a trailer for it, prefer gameplay.

Now it looks more like Ninety-Nine "Nights". Lol pun intended.

It's a MS IP. It says so on the game's website.

Agreed. If they are in direct competition, KUFII will be sure to crap on this.

Looks like another mindless button masher. Where oh where are all the good RPGs this gen. We need another Lost Odyssey level game!
Commented on 2009-09-02 23:44:44
yep its still microsoft game studios.. so theres little to no chance of it hitting the ps3. Its strange thought that microsoft would not be publishing their own game.. doesnt strike me as them having much faith in it.

Cant say i'm impressed with the screens.. have to wait for some video footage.

Sath, you didn't have a 360, how did you played NG2 then? A friend of yours got one?

You can't tell for sure at this stage, it may turn out to be more tactical than the original (actually it would be hard not to be) and less of a button masher. But, yeah, i do want the next LO :3

Yes and No, i love them too, but 90% of them don't leave Japan...

Aww... Man! It's a shame these images and the older ones don't show any old characters... I'm not actually going to miss any of them though, except Tyuruu and her tsunami attack o.o

Also, on the opening cinematic of N3 there was this bad-ass looking guy, i never got to fight in the game T_T hope he makes it to N3 2.
Commented on 2009-09-03 11:29:27
Great! I liked the first one, although it was a little repetitive, so I hope this one to improve some things!
Commented on 2009-09-03 14:55:05
only reason i skipped the firs tone was the crap save system ... and well ya i needed a little more strategy than completely mindless .lol

Ummm...I don't understand why everybodys making comments about it being more "serious" than the last game.

N3 was entirely about the horrors of war and every main character was faced with decisions which resulted in the loss of either thier direct family or a loved one/teacher/mentor/only friend.

Most of the characters were driven by rage, hate, and racism. A couple were subjected to slavery, torture, rape and or physical and mental abuse, and were now driven by nothing more than the need to completely erradicate the opposite species thru genocide.

On top of that the main story features constant lies, death, betrayal, and violence. And a major demon/god thing playing everyones hated against each other in a bid to return to life and conquer the world with neverending darkness.

It was very vividly colored and brightly designed but that was because it was a high-fantasy. It was however extremely dark in tone and story, being entirely about religious fanatasim, genocide, and racism(speciesim) and how been driven by revenge will not fill the hole left behind by the death of those you love.

That being said I do still want KUF 2 more!

but I can get behind this as well. I want to play Myfii again, that dude rocked and despite the fact that the game did need more polish, it was epic holding the bridge in the last battle with him and slaughtering something like 10,000 or more orcs in that one engagment without letting a single one get past.

Surely they are referring to the darker visuals
