Ninja Blade presentation

Ninja Blade presentation

Microsoft and From Software released this long video presentation of Ninja Blade, all in Japanese of course. But since it's not really a complex game, who cares?

Not going to be a killer app or anything like that, but this game looks like it will be pretty entertaining.

"Hey look! GOW is using QTE's, let's do that too only then like...x10 and constantly! We have a decent combat system in place, but let's just ignore that and focus on throwing in as many QTE's as humanly possible! Yeah, great idea!"

Seriously, what's up with that. They have some good stuff going on there, but are basicly ruining it with the QTE's. I don't mind an occasional QTE by means of filler, but this is just nuts. Perhaps it's just the way the trailer is composed, but I fear it's not.

In my opinion it looks kinda cool.

The QTE thing does look a bit too much, but who knows... until I play it I dunno whether it will make the game more exciting or annoying.

I just hope the action and scenarios are exciting, they look quite good.

WTF? At 19 seconds it says O-TO-GI 3? Is this supposedly a sequel or what?

God of War didn't invent QTEs. I think this game looks awesome, but... in a different way. It's not a serious game, it's closer to something like Earth Defense Force or No More Heros. Just mad over-the-top action only the Japanese can think up. It screams "NINJAS! WEAPONS! MONSTERS!" and I sit here replying with "YES!" and "I WANT IT!".

...it's gonna be badass. Even without the Ninja Gaiden combat and with influx of QTEs, it'll still be badass.

Blim Blim, you think there´s possibility to see the trailer in HD? I hope From software release it.
Anyway, thanks alot for the trailer. I love this game!!

This video looks epic I have to say
It's not going to be GOTY, but it looks really fun and creative to me
Also this new vid reminds me a lot of Otogi, even though you're more grounded

The battles across the sides of buildings and scaling in a way that reminds me of really old plat-formers is gold

A lot of people think this game looks awesome. I respectfully disagree. One of the most crappy POS I've ever seen.

At 5:05, does he try to stop a crashing 747... by getting out and pushing against the nose wheel?! :D

I thought the motorbike thing was pushing it :P

I hope they keep the original OST in the US version. I know they replaced the the theme song in the US version of Enchanted Arms, but then again Ubisoft was publishing.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to playing the game but the Tokyo setting is just looking extemely stale and uninteresting.

I could say the same about God of War 2.5. But I won't, would be stupid.

It's probably meant to mean "The third game from the developers that bought you Otogi" or something.

Either way, I know they're definitely crediting themselves at that part.. I'd know if it was a next spiritual successor to Otogi any day.

I want this game though. Just for the fact that every now and then you need an over the top kind of game.

Certainly appears to be really cool, with plenty of quick events and fun ideas.

The only Certain thing is... wait and see. For how long will the game be, how are the ratio QTE/Action Game, if the gameplay is solid... etc.
It won't take much longer to know, the Japanese version will be release soon.
