On the higher difficulties backing out of a combat zone is no longer a safe way to delay confrontation; you must finish enemies off with so-called obliteration techniques that leave your foes in pieces.


Looks like speed runs will be much harder to do.

Gametap: http://www.gametap.com/home/read/article/3369#

Shacknews: http://www.shacknews.com/featuredarticle.x?id=757

Notes found from those interviews:
Rival Ninja's name is Genshin.
Obliteration Technique gives you more essence (Like UTs do, in fact apperantly OTs will give the same bonuses as UTs)
Tutorials will be more newb friendly (with vids)
Dragon's Claw & Tiger's Fang have been made more useful.
Ryu goes up and down lots of times in the Tokyo level (climbing a building?)
Enemies litterally chase Ryu as if their lives depend on it.
Camera's improved. (YAY)
We're gonna collect flaming skulls O_o
You can Charge your arrows.
4 difficulty modes:
- Way of the Acolyte
- Way of the Warrior
- Way of the Mentor
- Way of the Master Ninja
Way of the Acolyte will be easier then NGB's Ninja Dog mode.
Way of the Master Ninja will be harder then NGB's Master Ninja Mode.
Itagaki thought about Co-op, and it didn't work.
Itagaki's thinking about a Replay feature (YES!)
Itagaki lets his wife test Way of the Acolyte Laughing
There will be downloadable content.
Itagaki doesn't like the fact that PS3 SCIV gets Darth Vader and X360 SCIV gets Yoda.

"I feel it's fine, if I'm doing a multi-platform game, to say, "Buy one version." But this is like saying, "You gotta get both if you want to get everything." " - Itagaki

Itagaki's planning on playing DMC4.
Itagaki thinks Combo vids are cool! Very Happy

Edit: Added a few things from Gametap and Shacknews

Thanks xninjared Thumb

I uploaded a 320x240 and 1280x720p version from the shacknews video at rapidshare.

low res: http://rapidshare.com/files/87413887/NG2faylor_xvid.avi

high res: http://rapidshare.com/files/87418623/NG2_Jan.wmv

Here is one of my favorite new attacks. Itīs the very first one where ryu jumps on the ninja an cuts his head off from behind Very Happy

Link


I also like this move, where ryu kicks his enemy to decapitate him. It looks just so fu...ing brutal when he stabs in his throat before he finish him Twisted Evil

Link


2 further videos. I wasnīt sure if everyone has discovered them yet. One video is from gamespy. i donīt know the source of the second one.

1: gamespy

Link


2. unknown source without sound

Link


It looks really cool how the enemies also performe wallruns and jump up walls.

I didn't even see a video link on there the first time I looked. Anyway, I think it links to GameSpy's video which you can see here

I knew the gamespy video. I just managed to watch the video at gametap. Itīs fvck awesome. Itīs a streaming video with no download link, but Iīll try to download it somehow though. You can see how an enemy stabs on ryu againe and again.

Ok, gametap is absolutely annoying!!! I only managed it to watch the video one time. Luckily I was fast enough to locate the path of the streaming with replay av Smile

Maybe some of you guys couldnīt watch the video, too. So I thought I post the link. Itīs a strange streaming format but it works nice with windows media player.

Cool video. If you looke at the Lunar IGN videos you can see that the player in those videos escapes the throw that the Spider Ninja did to Ryu in the video you just posted.

Nice vid! Look how the spider ninja throws Ryu and the floor, sits down on him and butchers him o_O!

I love the way Ryu opens doors!

Arg, the camera placed itself behind the parapet :/
