After a lot of technical problems (thanks MS) here are the first 10 minutes of Otogi 2, a game that any fan of japanese atmosphere and/or mindless beatings should enjoy !
Update : Just added the videos of both levels 2&3 and of the attract mode (SHQ). The game may be even better than I first thought :)
Update 2 : Added a video of an incredible fight with more than 50 ennemies ! Wow !

This new Otogi is of course very much like the first one, but upgraded in almost every ways
Graphically the game is still as beautiful and strange as before. The real-time cinematics have a very original feel due to a filter making them look an old movie and the game still has that very dull colors that made the first Otogi so special looking.
Technically the engine has been upgraded. I have detected a few slowdowns here and there but considering the sheer number of ennemis and special effects on the screen sometimes it's still very impressive ! Sometimes there is so much stuff moving that it's almost impossible to know what's going on !
The gameplay itself did not change much, it's still the same button configuration. But the biggest change is of course the fact that 6 characters are now playable. Each one is quite different from the others, some can fly (no double jump limitation), others can attack from a distance... Each level will be more or less difficult depending on which character you have chosen, but doing the good choice is quite difficult since the mission briefing is in japanese.
Important point, the cameras are still not perfect but is still better than one in the first Otogi.
The game seems quite long, there are a quite a few different levels and it takes a bit of time to finish each one. The difficulty seems a bit higher, but I can't tell for sure until I've played a bit more.

This new Otogi is a quite pleasant game, but I'd wait for the US or PAL release to get it considering how important it is to understand what's going on.

The video of the fight with the 50 ennemies is available without registration here
