TGS08: Ninja Blade gameplay

TGS08: Ninja Blade gameplay

Again at MS booth, and again a video showing nothing. Here is Ninja Blade.
Update: Strangely lefourbe had no problem filming the game at From Software's booth. So here is a much more interesting video.

That looks a lot better than I thought it would.

Is this it, or is there any chance there won't be anymore restrictions in the next few days?

Thanks for all the footage so far though.

I enjoyed both Otogi 1&2 a great deal and while they aren't big on stories, their action is top notch.

Looks very cool, bad main character design...it's decent, but he looks like ninja zorror :P

The gameplay it self, well there is too much QTE scripted gameplay like Heavenly Sword and God of War, I am okay with it.
The combat, it's slower than NG thats for sure, maybe Onimusha 4 speed?
Will look out for more gameplay that's for sure.

GAF is as hopelessly clueless as always, most people burdened with their unreasonable expectations. Ninja Blade is not supposed to be another uber-hardcore game like Ninja Gaiden 2, this one seems to me made with a broader audience in mind and that's perfectly fine.

Hard to tell if it looks fun or not since the player sucks so bad ;)
But really, i gues it looks better than expected. Not too thrilled about the QTE stuff though.

Also i agree that From soft isn't that great at all.

Looks pretty good, I think. Very cinematic. I too loved both Otogi games, and while FromSoftware has done alot of mediocre games, I still know they can produce games that looks good while also be fun to play. That is all I want.

awesome graphics.. i didnt expect it to look that nice. Hopefully the gameplay will be up there.. i'd be happy with just a prettier ninja gaiden ripp off that have a working camera.

Yeah QTEs are getting old now, hopefully that's just because it's a boss and the normal gameplay will have some, y'know... gaming involved.

too much scripted scenes, i don't know if i like that, haven't played games like god of war, so i can't say its good or bad thing, it also seems to restricted in terms of space as well

lol, every time something important is about to happen, they zoom onto his eye. It's kinda funny to to it 3 times in 3 mins... ^^

Looks like you can link the switchable weapon combos.

I hope the whole game doesn't take place in Tokyo at night though. Would be nice to see some sun..

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Ian_Nottingham: My advice: try one first. I did before I was thinking of buying it. Didn't buy it because I get simulation sickness with every game I tried. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Seems likely? First year it's been out in the wild.. first chance for them to give it a big go. I hope so too. (25 minutes ago)
  • Ian_Nottingham
    Ian_Nottingham @GriftGFX: I really hope we see something amazing at E3 with VR.I need a reason to purchase one since i haven't been able to try one out at a store anywhere. (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it'd be pretty surprising/amazing if PSVR actually lasted several years and developed a large library, personally. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean.. you can speculate too. I don't think anyone has a magic eight ball. I bet Sony doesn't even know. (31 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Thanks. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's probably too early to say.. but if Sony doesn't make a big fuss over VR at E3 than you'll probably have your answer. (37 minutes ago)
