  • looks killer

    • That saying is Dead, bro.

      • That’s right. There’s No More Heroes to save you now.

        • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

          I’m so glad that game’s first trailer has finally emerged from those Damned Shadows.

  • z_merquise

    This looked so awesome! I’m now hyped in this game!

  • Kobracon

    As usual, it LOOKS absolutely fantastic. Only time will tell how deep the gameplay will be, however.

  • Looks amazing!!!
    Can’t wait for this game!!!

  • uhawww

    Game looks cool…but I’m not sure how I feel about a dubstep remix of Dvorak’s Symphony from the New World. Should have just gone the Asura’s Wrath route and left it alone. It’s a powerful piece of music in its normal state.

  • DesmaX

    Day 1 for me

  • Eclipse

    This looks freaking incredible!
    That trailer pretty much has me sold on this.

    I’m definitely importing this as soon as it’s listed.

  • DrForbidden

    Looks… interesting, but what is it about Suda 51 and multi-armed women? IS that a fetish of his or something?

  • Mar Mar

    Gentleman + Cyborg Samurai = Badass!

    I suppose this will come out overseas since it showed Xbox 360 logo right? And Xbox is not that active in Japan.

    • surakian

      The game is already confirmed to have a worldwide release.

  • PrinceHeir

    fucking godly!!!!!!

    and wow the JPN voice is awesome!!!!

    the graphics and gameplay is similar to No More Heroes: Paradise, the aiming looks like from Shadows of the Damned, and the theme and story are from Killer 7.

    i just hope the story is much more darker than Killer 7, and more so in the lines of Silver Case :D

    btw where’s the remake Suda!!! :O


    definitely Day 1.

    please Suda 51 can we have Dual Audio please!!!!!

    my most anticipated game this year!

  • PrinceHeir

    also thank you Sal for the link download.

    you should add more features like this :D

  • surakian

    Thanks for the DL link. This game is looks pretty fantastic!

  • Was that freaking dubstep? rrrg get it out get it out!

  • Bloodios

    MGR and now this. 2013 is officially the year of murdering cyborgs and women with many arms. Do great minds think alike or what?

    By the way, the New World Symphony is simply freaking awesome. It’s like anything (Catherine, Asura’s Wrath, and now this) would be several times better with it (no matter the form) playing in the background.

  • DarthBrian

    looks bloody awesome.

    no pun intended. :p

  • I finally watched this. I’ll just echo the other comments here, this looks friggin awesome. I really enjoyed the stylish trailer.

    For those who would like to download the .mp4 version of the trailer. I uploaded it to Rapidgator. (720p/30fps/hardcodedsubs)

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      My Vita’s OLED says thanks!

  • Raiyu

    Here’s hoping we also get it this summer.

    It’s also pretty rare that we get a Japanese trailer with English subtitles.

    • Well, the game’s already been confirmed for a worldwide release (it was confirmed way back in April last year, so no worries if you forgot). That’s likely why.

      • Raiyu

        Very true.

  • xMCXx

    I love that song!

    The Japanese Kill Bill.

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    I officially do not give a fuck anymore about any journalist claiming Japanese devs have lost their focus, try to appeal to the west or that the Japanese games industry is faltering.

    • Skerj

      It’s really when they try to appeal to the west that things get all out of wack. Vanquish aside, because well Platinum can do no wrong EVER. Although I do wish they stuck with the original concept and the Casshan angle sometimes. :(

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        Even Vanquish had a nice Platinum spin despite being a TPS. Proved to me that Platinum can handle any Genre. They’re probably the best Japanese developer right now. Mind boggles what happens when they receive unlimited funding, as is presumably the case with Bayo2, they’d probably make the target hardware bleed.
