Arrow Samurai Spirits Zero

Off Insertcredit

Quote:
Samurai Spirits Zero has been announced by SNK Playmore. It will be a new 2D version of the classic fighting game, which has remained dormant for some seven years now. The odd thing is that it's being developed by Yuki Enterprise, makers of...shogi. And some Run=Dim strategy game. Very strange choice. Further info will be released in the August edition of Arcadia, which comes out July 30th. We've not long to wait!

http://www.samurai-zero.jp/index.html
Looks like there will be another Samurai Showdown/Spirits game in the making, which is good because the KOF series is getting pretty stale IMO, 02 wasnt all that good. But I would of preferred to of seen a Last Blade 3 then another SS game.

Hopefully SS Zero will have smoother gameplay then the previous SS, or I won't bother with it. Also its called SS Zero, so it could be some prequel game.

The official site is pretty empty but there is a character page (http://www.samurai-zero.jp/index.html), I can make out Haomaru (sp?) on the left and on the right I think its Nakoruru. But I have no clue who the middle one is.

Jeez...I can't make any of that crap out. <squints> I see no Haomaru there....hrmmm?

At any rate...SS has always been my fav game. Of course, in the states here they call it Samurai Showdown...I thought Spirits was just the name of the anime movie (which sucked). Meh...whatever. I kind of lost interest in the game after the 3rd one though.

I think for most games, the ultimate number of sequels that utilizes the same characters is three. Beyond that...it gets boring. They can't develop the chars anymore and the entire concept just gets bland. I hope they do something cool with this one...I remember they tried to make a 3D SS and it failed...so I'm not sure what else they have up their sleeve.

I hope they put Jubei in it though...he was the damned man.

Well, all I can really say is that I hope this one is good. I mean I like this fighting game series, but nothing has been happening with it for a while. I even thought they stopped making SS.... which kinda scared me.

The character page (http://www.samurai-zero.jp/s01.html) is updated again, one more silhoutte yay ... have no idea who that may be.

I cant really picture anything new to the SS series, I reckon itll be the same as the previous SS but with smoother gameplay and better graphics. But please SNK Playmore prove me wrong!

Well aslong as they have Nakoruru which they will most prolly have and Kazuki ill be happy.

We want Ukyo Tachibana! Hmm... well I'll have to see later how the game turns out. I've loved the SS games so far (except for the crappy PS Samurai's Rage... nice characters, veeeery bad gameplay=

Ohh him, I was thinking of Ukyo as the one with the long redish hair, hmm then that one must be Genjoru.

No. It's a new character...Yoshitori or something. He fights with four swords. Here's some screen caps I found off the P.A. site: http://www.the-magicbox.com/game072603e.htm

They have a few images of some of the new characters...that big deformed looking guy? Yeah...that's dumb. =_=

It might help if I READ some posts instead of just posting like the cheap whore I am. I'm so ashamed. Good show.

I don't know WHAT that big bald thing is, it looks pretty damned stupid though. The closest thing it reminds me of is Earthquake from the first SS.

His name is Kusaregedo, and it seems like he is another "can't throw" character in the vein of Earthquake.

As for Yoshitora, look closer at the sprite. It seems he has FIVE blades. Four small ones and something that resembles a Nodachi (although a bit smaller)

Yoshitora eh, hmm I wonder is he going to turn out to be the "K (King of Fighters)" of Samurai Spirits/Showdown because in the promo poster his in the middle. Like how K' became more of a central character then Kyo.
