A bit more Souls-ey than I expected.

Lol, as if the wait is the reason people dislike 15.

I'm far from an expert in Japanese (but I'll be going there for a year to study in a couple of weeks!), so please bear with me if there are some slight inaccuracies. I also couldn't make out the name of some mechanics.

  • On the bottom right are four icons that determines fighting stance.
  • Your Offensive and defensive capabilities are dependant on stance and can be changed on the fly.
  • There are bloddy katanas on the ground where other people have died.
  • Apparently you can active them and fight against them for good loot.
  • (I can't make out what word they used to describe them so I'm not sure if you fight them in PvP or if you fight AI units that look like the players.)
  • You can change armor and weapon in real time, so make sure you're in a safe area when you do.
  • There are also spears in the game that are good against groups of enemies.
  • There are guardian spirits that William can see and infuse into his weapon for a limited time like the flame wolf and the blue owl.
  • Guardian spirits appear after you die. (I guess as a helping hand?)
  • You will have to decide when to use it apparently, so there might be a limit.
  • There are shrines where you level up with the experience you've saved up, and where you can change spirit.
  • In some locations you might come across some strange flimmering (can't make out what they call it), which when you approach will spawn a youkai that drops good loot.
  • The boss shown is called an onryou (revengeful demon), a powerful oni.
  • You heal in realtime so it's important to look for an opening to do so.
  • When he heals he infuses his weapon with what looks like a blue owl spirit, different from the fire wolf from earlier.

Ha, what I thought too.

Anyways, I knew this game's title seemed familiar. Had no idea it was announced 11 years ago, though...

It's loosely based off an old unfinished screenplay by Akira Kurosawa, so my interest has peaked through the roof.

Not into these Souls / Ninja Gaiden super hard games, but the setting and art style looks awesome.

Looks fantastic (this is from a behind the door demo at TGS 2015)


Strong Bloodborne/ Ninja Scroll vibe, which makes it a big title for me

Looks like fun. Reminds me a little of Shadow of Mordor, which has some insane elimination attack moves and close ups to highlight the take down.

Free Alpha demo coming between 4/26th and May 5th (limited time, not playable after)

Including US (EU confirmed as well).


http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/...ut-this-month/

I guess this also confirms the game coming to the west in 2016, and one more exclusive on PS4 (poor wallets).

Best guess is summer (July/ August) to avoid the end of year crowd.
