    Hopefully, it'll be a next-gen Otogi.

    From Software has some ground to make up, after mishandling Chromehounds online, producing the decidedly average-to-poor Armored Core 4... Enchanted Arms was OK, I suppose, but I've been a bit bummed with them of late.

    It certainly looks like they're planning on chasing Otogi's tail with this, though.

    Microsoft-published, and I assume, funded too.

    great, great , great news!, studio ig produced great anime titles like Patlabor 2, Ghost in the Shell, Evangelion: Death and Rebirth, FLCL, Ghost in the Shell series & their visual game design credits include Star Ocean, Xenogears and valkyre Profile 2.

    ninja blade is being handled by the Enchanted Arms team, iirc otogi team is currently working on the tenchu 4 for wii. imho (from the limited media that has been released) ninja blade looks like it's going to be along the lines of a cinematic ninja gaiden.

    as said before, it's ms funded project. from software's previously announced ps3 projects(Black Blade & Dark RPG) has been cancelled.

    Where does it say the Enchanted Arms team is doing Ninja Blade as well as it being a MS funded project?

    A QTE-fest of which I am not a fan. I think it crossed the line between being a game and an interactive cut-scene by quite a distance...

    That sucks. I don't mind QTE if it is used at the right time, like RE4 and the God of War games, but I'm not a big fan of Dragon's Lair-esque games.

    I honestly think there was a QTE just for leaving the start screen. It's ridiculous how many QTE's were in this demo.

    So basically this is like a weaksauce Ninja Gaiden lite? with more ridiculous characters?
    (the main character looks incredibly silly)

    And aren't From Software the ones behind the critically panned Tenchu series?

    It's a QTE overload and a pitiful Ninja Gaiden, yes. Skip skip skip!

    Played the demo and am disappointed. Half of the action are QTEs also the game is 30fps not 60 like NG/NGII. The graphics are nice though, a shame really.

    Also behind a lot of fan favorites, like Otogi or Chromehounds, so there was hope. Also, it seems that Demon Souls is pretty fun. This one is sorta inexplicable.
