Oh yeah?

then where are the giant enemy crabs?

heh j/k

I hope itagaki makes it even more bloodier and add more gore :P
like guts flying out of stomachs when ryu slashes them or something :)

Itagaki obviously doesn't care for the japanese market.

But that's business, release a game like NG II in the US where the 360 has the biggest install base will generate the most revenue.

Looking foward to playing this game though, I hope this time there's some actual story to it.

i just hope NG 2 isnt as linear as the previous ones

NG1 isn't even that linear wtf? There's more then one way around place. You either haven't played NG, or don't know what linear means.

"'It's a modern re-telling of Japanese combat'"

I would love that to be true, but unfortunately I'm still waiting for such a game. Since the old Sword of the Samurai game by Sid Meyer we haven't got anything that actually captures the spirit of feudal Japan. Way of the Samurai series and Yakuza 3 are a step in the right driection but they are still too arcade for my tastes.

I think Itagaki refers to the amount of gore, and not the story of the game.

Gorgon3946d ago

I know that, just wanted to throw my 2 cents in this :)

InMyOpinion3946d ago

Ok =)

There's a Romance of the three kingdoms game that's coming to the PS3. Might be something worth checking out.

Gorgon3946d ago (Edited 3946d ago )

Hum...I checked that and still its not what I'm looking for. AND thats based on a chinese classic, not japanese. Still, if done the right way, it could be amazing. Not holding my breath though. OH, the DESPAIR!!!
