The animations for shooting into melee look lacking.

This game looks like it'd be at home on the PS3/360 designwise or very early PS4/One.
janky and some not great animation. Combat flow and enemy encounters don't seem particularly good either.

Yeah this game has kind of a cool style but the combat itself seems underwhelming. One to keep an eye on reviews and probably wait for a decent sale.

Everything lacks impact and intensity. The animations play out too slowly, there are no flashy effects, and the camera does sweet fuck all to emphasize the animation. Compare this to Ninja Gaiden and it's night and day:


Shaping up to be yet another mid-game from Valhalla Soleil.

Impressions are positive, but I'm a bit worried about this game though. I think they tried to be like Yakuza or something (not a bad thing) but I'm wondering if it will all fit together well

Yeah i don't know, it kinda feels like a poor man john wick with all those finishers that break the pace of the combat, and i don't even give a fuck about these movies...

Why do the enemies just stand around waiting for their turn? Other games do this too but at least it's just 2-3 so isn't as distracting as this.

Ninja Gaiden 2 would have at least a few of them trying to jump on you at once.

This does not look like a full budget but full priced game, it's $60 USD... that seems too much for what this video shows, it looks like it's lacking a little. The animations for shooting into melee look lacking.

The Ninja Gaiden thing is a pretty steep claim, and it doesn't seem warranted.
Its another case of Itagaki over estimating his ideas with budget, damn shame cause he could actually make another classic if he wasnt so touchy feely

Looks like a budget game I wouldn't even pay $60 for it. Not sure why the DOA Xtreme Volleyball reference as I didn't see any bouncy breasts.

Terrible, terrible voice acting.

Does anyone know if there is any traversal in the game or are you stuck on the ground? In all the gameplay footage so far I haven't seen the main character jump or leap off anything in the environment.

I'm guessing it's on the ground only except for contextual jumps or drops.
