what's everyone thought about this? i am worried that this might make the game whole lot easier.

i really wish someone would ask Itagaki about this.

Itagaki won't make this game easy. It wouldn't be NG if it was.

True, but are you refering to gleam of the heavenly dragon.

No matter how many times i see it, i keep thinking of how non-physically correct it is...

I think the reason for including it was so you could decide whether you'd want to land in front of or behind your opponent after the flying swallow.

So if i piled up all my enemies in a circle, flying swallow once would put me in the middle of them, thus disadvantageous. But flying swallow twice would put me outside the group so less threat, more advantage.

Still, i'm guessing there's going to be a counter unit like those white military soldiers in NGB that stab you whenever you FS.

yup, i am hoping on harder difficulties i can't risk more than 1 flying swallow or even nothing (like you mentioned with the white guards)

all enemies need to counter it.

I think it's called "Flock of Swallows". I say that name in a video of Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. I don't think it'll make the game easier becaue enemies will be able to block and dodge it like they did in other Ninja Gaidens. I think it's kind of cool how each weapon does Flying Swallow differently. With the Falcon's talons, Ryu does flying swallow and launches the enemy and himself in the air. With Reaver he does Flying Swallow and grounds the enemy. And with the Dragon Sword he does it three in a row.

I'm sure Itagaki thought of the problem of easiness. I guess he just wanted to add another cool move.

xD

I like how you guys are worried, but its silly.

Those demos are on easy and normal, I'm sure, and you can pretty much abuse FS on ninja dog and normal in black. However, as soon as you touch hard and up, you get a stick up your ass whenever you try it, so basically you won't touch any FS type move for any weapon once you realize you'll get raped for trying it.

Doh.


Itagaki will not dissapoint in two areas, this much is certain, there will be insane difficulty somewhere, and there will be big bouncing boobs elsewhere.

Very Happy

i was actually hoping we won't get another rachel-like character, the girl in the NDS game or ayane are good looking without the need to show much skin, this is my own opinion anyway.

I'm just worried that TN are gearing this more for casuals, even on Normal, I'd like to be challenged just like in NGB, i want the game to own my ass in every damn difficulty and encounter.
