So far, I'm liking it a lot. I thought it was going to be a slash masher but you have to think what to some times. Slashing is still effective but I heard it gets harder later. It's pretty easy to pull UTs off but you still have to know when to do them. The health regen system of NGII is in. I heard that there are two more difficulties and you can play as Momiji when you beat the game. I'm on Chapter 3 at the moment.

I would love to see some anime style cut scene screens, if possible Mr. Green

Enjoy the game.

Enjoy your time and don't hesitate to tell us about the game, for people like me who will probably never play to NGDS ^^

I'll try and record some stuff when I go back to school. I'm at home on Spring break right now.

I beat the game yesterday. It was pretty fun. There are a total of 7 ninpos. You can upgrade the Dragon Sword 3 times. Every time you upgrade it, Ryu can do one extra slash in a combo. He starts off with only 3 slash combos and he gets 6 slash combos at Max level. There are three techniques; Izuna Drop, Flock of Swallows, and Counter attack. Flock of Swallows lets you do three flying swallows in a row and I think you can buffer a UT during the attack so you can do an on-landing UT. I haven't been able to do counter attacks. When you beat the game, you unlock "Head Ninja" difficulty. If you beat the dragon fiend in the first chapter with Momiji, you unlock Rin who is Momiji just with a different name. I assume that since you have to save Momiji, it would be strange if you were using Momiji to save Momiji so they call her Rin. The difficulty is called "Master Kunoichi". Throught the game you can her a bird, you have to blow in the mic or do an UT and then it will appear. Shoot it with projectiles and then it will drop a wooden tablet. Each one unlocks a character profile, cutscene, or diary of a character when you beat the game. They are not all availabe on normal though. You have to play all the difficulties to unlock them all.

My DS screen shows signs that I used UTs a lot, but it's all good. I thought it wasn't as easy as some reviews made it seem but it wasn't too hard. The hardest thing for me was beating the dragon fiend on chapter 1 with Momiji. He can kill her in only a few hits and she is so weak.

Dont forget, when you get the dragon sword up to level three, you can deflect projectiles back at enemies by swinging your sword in the direction its coming from and kill them instantly.

I believe this is my first post, but to counterattack you have to block, and while blocking slash an enemy the instant they attack you.

The timing alone is so incredibly difficult, I've only done it once and that was when I meant to roll away. It's the same counter that removes an enemies leg in the NGII videos.
