    This looks like its gonna be a ton of fun to play. Haven’t played a good solid side scrolling brawler since the genesis golden axe days. Good times.

    • Peacenutman

      Castle Crashers is pretty good, I suggest you try it out.

        CC is kind of short though, it’s replay value relies on your interest in replaying the short and easy stages with a different character.

      • confused_wanderer

        I’ve played it at a buddies house, its quite entertaining. But I prefer medival fantasy settings. Although CC fits both of those categories. dunno CC doesn’t vibe with me that much. maybe its nostalgia

    If only the art style were not this deformed…

    It’s a pity, because I’m interested in this game but I know I can’t stand the amazon or sorceress, and even if I’d choose not to play with them this video show things that will make me not enjoy the game…

    Oh well… one cannot have everything.

    • Kobracon

      Thats…really sad for you.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’m just as saddened by the Warrior. I mean, who really expects guys to look like that?

      But either way, the game looks fun despite something minor like that.

      (This comment was not serious.)

      I just love the artsy graphics. That’s the main draw for me.

    I won’t watch this. I don’t want to spoil anymore of the game for myself.

      This is the only video I bothered to watch *Spoilers ><* It's like Dragon's Dogma in 2D with Multi-Player.

      I have a feeling that this game will definitely destroy every sidescroller indie game out there and force them to up their standards.

        I’ve seen a few other gameplay videos. ^^

        I can’t wait to pick up my copy. I’m already sold on the game. =)

  • Elvick

    Can’t wait to play this. The only thing that would have made it better was cross play with Vita/PS3 users. It’s a shame they didn’t get that feature in there…

    But it’ll be awesome either way.

  • LordKaiser

    This and Xillia are already paid in advance. I just need to pick them up.

  • Atinverse

    Argghh! Between this and FF14 next month: non-gaming productivity will be at a zero.

  • Nitraion

    I know this game will be fun :)

    I am excited. This looks one of those rare magic games that don’t come around quite often. So going to get this by the end of this month.

  • xMCXx

    I really like the monster design! Looks gorgeous!

  • Unknown

    I’m curious does the game have a story? and if so do the characters that we make have a personality of sorts?

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    The word “Kickass” isn’t enough to describe this Awesome game.

  • ddsfan2

    Looks really amazing, really arcade like, Vanillaware really fell under my radar (need to check their past releases)
