That's a good point. However, being DLC or not has nothing to do with being a gimmick to make sales. Whether Ayane was originally on-disc in Sigma 2, or if she was free DLC, it doesn't change the fact that she was yet another "sex sells" gimmick. Come on, they literally gave you the ability to shake her over-exposed breasts in the very game she was playable in lol. Same goes for Momiji and Rachel, but Rachel was playable before Sigma 2 came out and already had her sexual personification since she was ever made playable. Ayane and Momiji served virtually the same purpose in Sigma 2 as Kasumi does in RE. At any rate, the playable characters in RE are free DLC anyway, so I see no need to complain. Most likely, they released these characters as DLC after the game's release as a means of giving the game more longevity. It's an annoying tactic, but I've never been the type to complain about free DLC lol.


True but it wasn't only about that, even if the goal was to improve sales, they gave them at least real new abilities. An they had a link to the story. Contrary to Kasumi who has been randomly dropped into the game.
Free DLC? Wait, you first have to buy the NGRE (and the console...) before getting these "free" DLC ^^'. If it were free DLC for the original NG3, we wouldn't complain so much, even if the huge lack of real new things remains true.

I agree that it was a very stupid idea for them to just randomly drop Kasumi into the game in the way they did. She has virtually no connection to the story, and doesn't even at least have one or two of her own missions. Quite frankly, if they simply did that (gave her a few of her own missions in the story mode), I think that alone would have made all the difference. As far as the gameplay aspect, her play style is quite new and unique and imo she is a great character as far as gameplay is concerned. I've been finding more and more gameplay vids of here here players actually use more than 3 combos lol, and her moves are very amazing when a player that actually knows what they're doing is using her lol.

....you have to buy a game in order to access it's DLC, free or not, so that doesn't really make a difference here lol. You're saying that as though every other game doesn't follow the same principle. You obviously need the game first in order to use the DLC. But even so, I agree with you point as to how they presented the DLC. They made no attempt to tie Kasumi into the actual game or the story.

A fanboy doesn't need a story. He simply buys the game for Kasumi, lol

Hail to Ayane, the only true NG-ninja girl Very Happy

Lol very true. Although, I'd have to admit....if they made Hayate into a playable character for either RE or future NG titles....I would probably end up buying it just for that alone hahaha

Ayane: Yeah, right behind you, dumbass! >_>

Ryu Hayabusa: Hey that's my weapon!!

No Ryu, Ayane brought it to Vigor to assist you in your quest.
It's most probably a Mugen Tenshin weapon Laughing


Edit: Ninja Gaiden II says it's a Hayabusa Clan weapon Embarassed

I found a video showcasing some of what's possible with the new star of the Ninja Gaiden series.....
Oops, I mean I found more Kasumi videos. Very Happy

Now, that is a skilled player, that's refreshing! As is someone who actually uses hold-and-release attacks other than for UTs. So she really can Cicada Surge her way out of bullets and missiles… the poor helicoter guy has his job stolen. Laughing It seems the timing is pretty punishing though…

She can also do the slide SoB, which is great but… why did they remove it for Ryu then, damnit! >__<

But those legs… I mean those lags… I mean both. Surprised On PS3 the lag stops once you've eliminated the rocket launchers, but on Wii U it seems more persistent…

By the way, Kasumi's WS has 6 branches, so it's not the one Ryu used in NG1/2. :ž

Wow, finally! I've been waiting for someone that is really skilled with her to finally make a gameplay video of it. His use of her Sakura Madoi was excellent, he was even countering the rocket launcher guys. I especially loved the way he used Sakura Madoi to counter the grabs and initiate SoB chains. He seems like he used almost all of her combos, and he used them very well. Thanks for the video, hopefully he/she releases some more gameplay vids of Kasumi.

LOL, now I see what you meant when you said she can teleport off of the map. It's an interesting answer to projectile spamming, but it's obviously a glitch that they need to patch. It's cool to see, but it's a little broken lol. Hopefully if they make a Sigma 3, they'll fix all of these little glitches and bugs. Oh and hopefully they'll greatly expand the arsenals of all the playable characters (Ayane, Momiji and Kasumi).

Ah no, I don't want them to fix that! It's what you call a "good bad bug". Smile It's not like you can do it inadvertently anyway.

My uncle now has the game so I can tell you that Ryu does have the slide SOB.
You have to stagger the enemy when they do a desperation attack and then use slide,
it knocks them off their feet Twisted Evil
