Yatagarasu - doujin lovechild of EX-SNK staff
GeeseTheDuck
YouTube Video

Yes indeed, the doujin fighter that was created by 3 EX SNK members, with Styleos being the programmer (worked for SNK with KOF '99 -01), is not dead after all!
The game through and through is quite an oddity in the flashy world of Doujin fighters,
taking a much more subdued approach (gaining the pet name 'Doujin 3rd Strike).

Well, I've always supported SNK,
so i have nothing to lose by supporting EX-SNK either i guess.
Buy it here:

and grab the first update patch here:
http://yatagarasu...wnload.htm

Styleos was a character designer back when he worked for SNK,
and he also took care of the animations for some characters.
So I'm interested to see how he'll handle this.

ABOUT YATAGARASU...
it looks really nice thus far, although, I think calling it Doujin 3rd Strike is a bit far fetched! It definitely has a bit of a Last Blade come MOTW look to it imo.

I RECOGNISE...
this game though, and I have no idea why? I think it may have been discussed here a while back. Probably why it looks familiar. Last time I remembered it, I only think Crow was a playable character!!

Would be nice if this saw a console release of some sort Roll Eyes

Two punch-kick buttons: a SNK standard, 3s uses three.
Parry: Aside from it being mapped to two buttons, yeah, it's like 3s.
Two shotos: not too unusual
Fei-Long guy: No excuse.
Sword chicks: don't remember them in any Capcom fighter,
if anything, they remind me of Last Blade's Hibiki.
Hanzo: Well, Styleos DID design Angel.
Boxer: seems pretty original for a boxer character.
Grappler: Why hello Mecha Gief!
Graphics: more than being like 3s, I get more of a KOF vibe from it,
especially with the overall murky atmosphere, which somewhat reminds me of KOF '99
and Daraku Tenshi especially (which Styleos helped with character designs/animations).
Music: love it!
Character designs look-wise: Again it has more of the KOF NESTS saga/Daraku Tenshi feel to it. Even the gameplay clones like Mecha-gief gives away this vibe in the way they look.
Gameplay: while it certainly has its similarities to 3s, from what I've tried,
the gameplay seems to have more of an offense-driven focus reminiscent of MotW than anything.
... At least these are my impressions of the last work-in-progress version i played way back in 09-10.

Looks indeed VERY interesting, especially for a Doujin Fighter for only humble $20. Especially the Parry feature, which I only know from 3rd Strike, awakened my interest absolutely. Thanks Geese, I might pick this one up.

Garou and Daraku Tenshi popped as well into my mind when I first saw this. As far as I know, some programmers from "The Steel Hearts" later moved to SNK to support them with with their KoF '99 develpment (K's and Maxima's design compared to Haiji Mibu's and Harry Ness' should clarify it). Do you know by chance if these might be the same developers along with that Styleos guy?

I know Styleos designed K', Maxima and Angel among others.
He also did some character animations here and there.
He also worked with Psikyo for Daraku Tenshi
and did some stuff for Cave.
Dunno about the other guys.

In that trailer at about the :23 mark when Jet cancels into his super it looks almost exactly like Haiji's Super in Daraku Tenshi. Anything that reminds me of Daraku Tenshi gets my attention, and with Styleos working on this... Yeah, pretty sure I'll be getting this. Does anyone know if it'll run under Windows 7 US version? I know I'd have to change some settings probably, but the site only mentions Windows 2000 and XP.

EDIT: Gameplay video from slightly older version:

Looks slick!

I dunno, I always have my PC set to Japanese locale,
but if there's a problem, then you can always use applocale.

Newer gameplay video.

The extra announcers are a fun touch,
but i doubt I'll ever use them.

Finally got the game.
After playing through arcade once i got the impression that while this certainly isn't a bad game,
there's not all that much that'll make it stand out either and the engine feels somewhat limited.
While the music is amazing, things like the volume of the different character voices doesn't seem to match up.
I like the visual style as a whole, the characters look very nice and the backgrounds have a somewhat hazy feel to them.
Overall, it's not too shabby but there's not much aside from the unlockables that'll hold interest.
And I'd like to see them continue improving on this in the future.
And yes, i do think the 20 bucks spent was worth it,
if it was more than that? .... nah.

Hm. The soundtrack is pretty darned sweet, but the characters are rather bland for my tastes. Overall, it does seem like a fairly fun game. I just might consider purchasing it sometime since $20 is a fair deal.

By the way, anyone know what the name of the song in the trailer is?

Just thought I'd mention in case anyone is interested that Yatagarasu is also coming to the
3DS. I was impressed with the PC version so I recommend 3DS owners to check this out. As others have already said the soundtrack is really good.

Never heard of this one and after doing some searching I heard about the 3DS version... then of course I scroll down to find the video for the DS version. Anyway I would buy that, I think it looks like a game that could become a cult classic.
