Wow! This thread is both awesome and informative! How about some details? Anything! Pitt looks like his Smash incarnation. Gameplay shown looked like Panzer Dragoon or Sin and Punshiment 2 with big boss fights. Graphics are on par with PSP quality. Comparable to Kingdom Hearts.

You tools don't win awards for being the first to make a thread.

Can't be worse than Kid Icarus the original. Just because it was in Captain N doesn't mean it deserves a new game, people.

Also, it's ugly as hell. What are you people smoking?

When I first saw this my balls dropped. This is like some awesome fusion of Dragonball Z, Zelda, God of War, and Sin and Punishment.

Project Sora is the name of the developer. I don't think it was ever a codename for the project.

The game looks great, despite the underwhelming PSP visuals, but I'm pretty troubled by the fact that this was the only 3DS game shown. Launch delay confirmed?

the hell? no it's not, it looks good enough to be a SE PSP title, if not better.

Gameplay looks like a lot of fun. Glad to see this franchise comes back. Nintendo is pretty good about listening to what the fans want.

Haters gonna hate, but the first two games were good platforming/action. Should be interesting what Sakurai maintains about the original games.

Thankfully, I wasn't part of the group that expected PS3/360 level graphics. So yes, the graphics for the game did impress me and glad with it.

That was just a rumor. This is going to be high end PSP at least, with actual 3d effects. Not to mention Nintendo quality stuff.

Really, you guys think it looks bad? I thought it looked great. Were you people honestly believing the PS3/360 shit!?!

Favorite trailer of e3 by far, looked crazy!!! :D

I thought it looked good graphically, especially for being a launch title. I'm sure it will look better once demoed on the 3DS itself as well.

Was definately not expecting Project Sora to be based on an existing franchise. But this looks amazing.
Sin & Punishment 3.0

The optimistic way to look at the graphics: It's a launch-window title, and it looks comparable to some of the more impressive titles on PSP. So it's far from impossible that with more experience, developers will be able to pull off visuals significantly better than what PSP can do.
