    Anyone else remember when witches used to be wizened old crones with warts and broomsticks rather than hot young chicks in bikinis?

    Wowsers, yet another 3rd person slasher title from the land of the rising sun.

    If they continue with this kind of banal, stagnated genre plop it seems like the prophetic Jun Takeuchi would be right to say that their industry is going down the toilet.

    @Blerk I think these days they tend to be hot young chicks that turn out to be wizened old crones in disguise.

    I call it ‘the lager effect’ ;)

    The only JP ganme that currently has my my interest is Vanquish – that one actually looks really rather decent.

    @5 because it’s a shooter? -________-”

    How can you take so much shooters? Come on.

    “Heinrich, a knight who is immortal and a witch known as Gretchen.”

    lol, the Japanese still like cliché-ridden historical German myth culture. Ridiculous =)

    @ 8: Actually it’s because I like the art style and setting. I’m not really a big shooter fan as it happens – my fave type of game is runny-jumpy-climby-fighty platformery adventure type games, like Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia and God of War. I *really* like the look of that new Castlevania game, for example.

    It’s also why I like that 3D version of Bionic Commando so much. I’m a sucker for novel ways to traverse an environment.

    Looks good to me, like a cross between ninja gaiden and castlevania, theres not nearly enough ‘decent’ pure action games for my liking.

    The new shot of vanquish looks very cool to, one shot shows the screen full of homing missiles
