From the creators of Earth Defense Force and Gigantic Drive, comes a dramatic action title of Norse Mythology on the Wii!

Mmm, aside from the identical enemy crowd, the graphic engine seems to look pretty nice o_o

Female lead..? And published by Nintendo? *thumbs up!*

What kind of game is this though? I might want it depending on the suitability of the genre (I am not that great at games that require superior reaction/precision). My "action-ability" pretty much goes up to Tales of levels, and even then, that's mostly unstructured/nonstrategic.

Please skew to having more RPGish elements (or allow for easy-mode mashing/waggling). I need time to think!

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

The framerate looked awful in the short clip.

Maybe it`s because the Game is still early in development...maybe

I noticed this too, I don't know if it was a capture problems or something, but framerate seemed to dip to 2 frames per seconds when the blood started to fly.

Why the fuck are people saying this looks like a MotionPlus game? The video clearly demonstrates that you slash in the direction of the pointer.

So... think it will be better or worse than Too Human -- from the perspectives of gamers, GAFfers, and Dragona?

Maybe it's because this developer has a history of games with terrible framerates...maybe.

1:1 motion sensitive crab attacks to the weak spot for massive damage?

More like Metroid.. ancestor.

Blond too! Think of the possibilities!

I'd probably prefer a different hair colour though. For a second, I kept wanting to call the character female-Link, like a Legend of Zelda, starring Zelda (Or Legend of Link: Morning Knight?)!

I'd say, it's probably not 1:1 for the normal part, but you can go into "overdrive" mode where you go bullet-time first person and it'll be 1:1 from there. Otherwise, I think it might be too weird seeing the character's arm flailing and flopping around with 1:1.

It would also be funny if they had an expert mode for M+ where you'll get damaged if you accidentally position the sword so that it would slice through you, because I picture a lot of people flailing their arms to use the sword in the most unrealistic ways.

It'd be nice if sandlot could pull off their games without framerate issues, but that's no problem in the end. Even with the hitches, their games are mega epic awesome. And it's so EDF norse it's not funny. The GUI is straight from EDF :D

Mdk7, go buy an EDF game. You'll love it.

Fantasy EDF with valkyries and giants is exactly what I want from this. Just give me an option to play without waggle and we're good.

Looked pretty rough from the short footage (though some aspects of the visuals appear really solid)...Never player anything by Sandlot, but if you guys tell me that they're capable of making games which despite their roughness can still bring some good fun, then I guess I'll wait and see how it turns out.

This looks fun, but I hope this doesn't mean we won't see any more HD EDF for a while. The 360 game was good, but I need a jetpack when I kill giant bugs. Why did you take away Pale Wing, Sandlot, why?
