No new content, but this interview
caught my eye.
Now I didn't play God Hand
and this is all coming from a few LP's I watched.
It's a Crazy Awesome Beat 'em Up
with Good Old Fisticuffs
. That's where the similarities end though. That's certainly enough to be a buy for me, and maybe that's enough to be deemed a Spiritual Successor
to God Hand
(it's enough to make another funny 4koma at least), but my standards for spiritual succession are a bit higher.
This game is on a much larger scale at a much earlier level, with the number of enemies looking a lot like fighting small armies, rather than gangs in God Hand
. It looks like the game will have a much faster pace in combat as well. This game seems to be playing things more seriously than God Hand
, and I think most of the comedy will come from the sheer ridiculousness of the enemies' power more than anything else. God Hand
was very self-aware and played the majority of itself for laughs (to great effect) and I don't see that happening here. I just don't see Asura spanking or groin kicking anyone in this game.
Slightly on a tangent, but I hope this game is Nintendo Hard
. I really do. Fighting deities and armies should be hard, and I want the game to reflect that. It's just that Cyberconnect2 have made a grand total of...one hard game
, and that was eons ago. I hope they turn the difficulty up for this one, which may be feasible with Capcom involved as well.
To end on a high note however:
"The reaction they had is because those people are looking for a crazy, over-the-top game. This game will be that for them.
This makes me feel hopeful. If they just keep the action crazy and over-the-top, I will be pleased.
