Ninja Gaiden 2: Media explosion

Ninja Gaiden 2: Media explosion

Microsoft and Team Ninja released nothing less than seven new videos of Ninja Gaiden 2, each unveiling one character of the game, along with one or two artworks each. Looks like there will be quite a few boss to slaughter, and the horrible american dubbing will certainly be a good enough motivation to be fast about it.

VOLF IS THE MAN!!!

Well, he's not a man, but you know what I mean.

The graphics are utterly insane in this game.

Looks amazing as usual, I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

By the way, it's English dubbing not American, "American" is not a language and the voice acting wasn't that bad at all. Hell, compared to most Japanese games/Anime the voice acting is damned good and doesn't seem to suffer from the usual translation issues heard in most games.

these characters would fit DMC more than NG,

but whatever, gameplay is where the action is

Ryu's dubbing is far from "damned good."

That's the thing about NG, aside from other ninjas, what DOES fit in terms of enemies? Team Ninja is so all over the map with their designs, it's hard to say something does or doesn't fit in.

Note the "Compared to" in the sentence.

Yeah, but I guess I was just comparing to the Japanese games I've played. It's pretty much on par with them.

Oh WOW Nice pic ^_^ This game is look very impressive \(^o^)/ I can't wait:) I think it's has differently with Devil May Cry because NINJA GAIDEN it's has hardcore style and game play is so fast:D Thx you BlimBlim for screenshot and video :D
Commented on 2008-05-12 15:52:47
The game looks awesome... cant understand why some people complain on NG2 visuals, imo they fit perfectly well this game and are a very big update from NG1. Im totally sure the gameplay will kick ass; that plus a 60fps fights with a good soundtrack = action game of the year for me ^^
Commented on 2008-05-12 16:21:44
Can's wait to challenge these bosses! They look so intimidating.

Don't hate he is also a Jets fan. Bruce Lee was born in Cali so why can't Ryu's father be born in Philly lol!
Commented on 2008-05-12 16:40:30
Is there going to be the option of Japanese voice-overs with English subtitles?

I like the voice talent they use for DOA, so why screw it up with Ninja Turtles and Powers Rangers? Ugh!

I'm so far from hating it's not even funny. The first was one of my favourite games of all time. Hearing Genshin say "Joe" is pretty laughable. It'd be so much better if he had a Japanese name.
Commented on 2008-05-12 16:49:20
lol, Joe. Anyway the bosses look cool, Volf also kicks ass.

Can't wait to fight Volf in that Colosseum :D

About the game

    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (48 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
