"Sensui is back on stage.

He shows us a trailer.

NINJA BLADE.
4:46
"It's developed by FROM SOFTWARE." From Software Producer Masanori Takeuchi is on the stage. He's talking about the game, which is "cinematic action" title. The trailer showed a ninja standing on a plane, falling into Tokyo and running down the side of a building. The game is set in Tokyo -- "famous Tokyo landmarks" like Shinjuku Station.
4:47
The action scenes and the cut scenes are seemless
Wow, Lost Planet designer Keiji Nakoka is working on this game.
4:48
Norihiko Hibino did the music -- who's also done music for MGS 3 and Ryu Ga Gtoku 2. Production I.G. worked on the cutscene animation.
4:48
Holy smoke this looks cool.
4:51
They're showing us helicopters, the ninja jumps off and cuts up demon monsters as he falls down to Tokyo below. He catches onto a buiding with a rope and inside the destroyed building, there are zombie monsters. The ninja cuts them up and then a LARGE OBJECT comes crashing into the building. The game is dated for 2009. The game will be playable at TGS."

I'Ve Just finished watcing the trailer and the looks very similar to NG and few things from DMC which is a good thing but hopefully the camera will be better in this game.

Guys, this is from FromSoftware.

Be very... very... VERY... cautious.

What else have they made?

Either way, devs don't mean sh*t. Silicon Knights made great games and I expected TH to as godo as all their others. WRONG. Bungie made two great Halo's, was Halo 3 as good? Hell no.

Either way, I'm always ready to welcome another game to the XBL exclusive family. If it plays anything like NGII (I actually didn't mind the camera, go rape your sister jeff) I'll be happy.

EDIT: Just looked up what they have made, not so sure about Armored Core(never palyed it) but I'm a big fan of Tenchu, not counting Z, and Chromehounds is very good as well. I see no reason to freak out. Not like they made the last couple Crash Bandicoots.

Ah you just missed my edit it seems, allow me to do a poor man's quote of it:

I win. No images for it yet though

"
Yea but how are we supposed to trust a page made by "Lies"?"
Agreed. I hope it has a better camera than NG2."

The camera wasn't even that bad... It was the same camera as Sigma... The only time it was bad was when you could hardly see your guy and if you block and hit RT, you'll be fine....

Cool, i'll check it out.

Looks really good, but it's only a CG trailer. I will reserve impressions of the game until we actually get some gameplay footage.

Until the game can distinguish itself from Ninja Gaiden 2 I won't care at all.

#15 Posted by Oemenia (52 posts) -

Loved OTOGI, From Software have really given a lot service to the XBOX. They deserve a commercial success for once

Not in agreement. NGII was great, anything like it(the same way with God of War being like DMC) will be great if done right. Though since Team Ninja is howing off 3 new games, this will get buried.

Everything I've heard so far(until some video of gameplay is actually shown) this is just another ninja gaiden clone...so no thanks.

From Software, that probably means it won't be that good.  I've yet to experience a good Japanese game on the 360.

For all the graphical failures and the newbie AI, I actually had a ton of fun with Tenchu Z; but even I have to admit that quality was lacking, in a big way. They seem to have a fucking nice engine for this though. Huge improvement. I'm looking forward to seeing what's up.

Blades?  Nice.  Ninjas?  Awesome!

Ninja Blade?  Not so much.

It just sounds like a game nobody will play or even remember.
