The game will have Classic Controller support. Also, here's some information about what you'll be able to do with the chains seen in the trailer:
  • Pull flesh of enemies.
  • Restrain enemies to allow for easier attacks with other weapons.
  • Use enemies as weapons by swinging them around.
  • Latch on to walls and swing around.
  • Activate switches.
If you play with a Wiimote, you'll be able to directly control the chain via arm motions.

Also, the game is apparently an "exploration-style action RPG". Metroidvania, perhaps?

Hmmm... I dunno man... I got extremely excited for The Last Story, but that turned out to be a total letdown from what I've heard, so I'm a little reluctant to get excited about another Wii RPG (thing is, for me to play a Japanese Wii RPG, it actually has to be worth importing the console for -- and then I wouldn't even have the ability to play English games unless I can make it region free through some modding magic). Not to mention how I'm just not a big fan of 3D whip/chain-action games (can't stand God of War and and anything that resembles it -- way too slow for my tastes).

At least it's been confirmed that this is a true action RPG rather than a "hold A to auto attack" game, so we're off to a good start. The game also received a C-rating (15+) rather than the A-rating (all ages) or B-rating (12+) that most RPGs get (including stuff like the MegaTen series), so here's hoping for something with a darker tone to it, but it's probably only because you get to pull flesh off enemies.

Either way, I do have some interest in it as hack 'n' slash RPGs are my favorite genre, so I'll be sure to keep an eye on it.

Interesting. We'll see. These games have to come out here before we can make a proper assessment, you can't rely on the the reception of Japanese gamers and their videogames media.

Really? I thought it looked really cool. Where did you hear it wasn't good?
