Reminds me of Bullet Witch. Looks kinda cool at first, but after you play it...

I wonder why From didn't make a trailer for this.

I wasn't too hyped up for the game after seeing the demonstration, but that trailer looked great.

Here's better gameplay footage.

Kind of gives a better feel for the combat system instead of seeing the same moves over and over like in the demonstration or other vids.

Like I said, if a skill player in 3rd person action game that is used to it like DMC and NG, they will learn really fast how to play these type of game fast and stylishly.

I think Ninja Blade looks and plays good, but thats as far as I go, but i do love the special touches on the visuals like how the enemies dies, the blue afterimage that represents speed for the character.

There is a HD trailer of NB on XBL, in the end it says Early 2009, quite early if you ask me...I heard the game was in development in 2years or so, so I am not surprised.

Is it the same trailer as the cinematic air battle from Gametrailers?

I'm hoping there's some Otogi elements in the later portions of the game though, like tons of enemies on screen or something. Hopefully the game is more than just we've seen so far in terms of gameplay.

As for the special effects in the graphics, I agree. The blur and depth-of-field, camera zooms, and filters that come into effect when you do certain attacks/moves and magic looks great. It's what I pictured NG2 would be visually. This just looks a little more realistic, and there's better lighting and shadowing. Not to mention the animations look more believable as well.

Yeah its the air battles.

And yeah that is what I expected NG2 to be as well, alot of extra touches with the visuals.
All I saw which was cool was how he visuals faded in on the weapons when Ryu charged for a UT, that and the ninpo.

In the air battle trailer there was like 3 other ninjas in the plane as well, that looked ALOT better than Ken (main character).

I want more and BETTER gameplay video from this game, but so far it has potential.
