Samurai Spirits Sen Gameplay

it looks nice but 2D is still beter Wink
Edited by candycab on 10. May 2008 04:35
Definitely... but this is looking better than I thought it would be. I still think it would be better if it was less Soul Calibur-ish and darker/with blood.

Still looking forward to trying it.

SNK 's 3D offerings are generally poor though aren't they? I personally don't like the Maximum Impact games, Metal Slug 3D was a bit of a debacle and the Neo 64 games aren't held in very high regard either.

You can look most of Samurai Spirits Sen videos on Spirits Society forum there:
Doesn't look half bad actually. I'd be willing to give it a try.
Can you jump in this game :question: Roll Eyes
Black Shroud
It seems there is little use of jumping & special moves. Mostly characters circle around with some fast combos & juggles, and if they get chance they put in Heavy Slash that takes like 50% of lifebar.
Kotaku has had a hands on play at the game, this what they say:

"While SNK dazzled with King of Fighters XII (and maybe even stole Capcom's thunder!), it seems to have missed its mark with its latest Samurai Shodown (AKA Samurai Spirits game. Comment czar Witzbold checked Samurai Spirits Sen out today at AOU, writing:
So sad about Samurai Spirits. It has literally turned into a mixture of Tekken-ish gameplay with no real jumping, and a rather bland gameplay. D: The 3D characters dont even look that good. I mean there's a friggin viking now. A big, fur wearing, horned helmet, axe weilding viking. It's gone World Heroes on us! The game felt sluggish and unresponsive. So sad since I used to love the Samurai Spirits series. I hope they polish it up after the feedback that will be given after the show by the fans."
Is this SS7 or another seperate installment? I damn hope on the latter.
Black Shroud
genuine japanese SS dont have numbers at all
-Samurai Spirits
-Shin Samurai Spirits Haohmaru Jigokuhen
-Samurai Spirits Zankuro Musouken
-Samurai Spirits Amakusa Korin
-Samurai Spirits 64
-Samurai Spirits Asura Zanmaden
-Kenkaku Ibunroku Yomigaerishi Soko no Yaiba Samurai Spirits Shinsho
-Samurai Spirits Zero
-Samurai Spirits Tenkaichi Kenkakuden
-Samurai Spirits Sen

And what do you mean by another separate installment ?
I can remember only NakoADV as kinda separate installment. Samurai Spirits RPG is mostly canon, and pocket games are canon

Oh yes there are also two dating sims and a couple of trading card games Smile

I mean seperate in the sense that it is like a little branch off, and SNK'll still be makin' 2D SS games. The 2 Hyper 64 games are seperate.
hope shiki is going to be in this game LOL

SS6 is officially last 2D samsho, and 3D games never were separate part of series, they were in same storyline and timeline, like SS64 directly continues SS2 events
here is a new vid. dudes enjoy Wink

You can check news and SS7 video section on Spirits Society forum for the last videos up to date (Well if you want to see fatalities and blood in SS7, that is)
Well, it's obvious that they're going for SoulCalibur here. But Soulcalibur is a fantastic pick up and play fighter, so that's not a bad thing when you think about it. Looks like it's going to be the (vivid and awesome) fatalities that will set this apart though. I do think it's a missed opportunity to not include Last Blade characters... Hopefully that will be corrected in a sequel.
Black Shroud
Last Blade & Samurai Shodown games are kinda in different timelline so it will be possible only in games like Neo-Geo Battle Coliseum.

By the way now Sen is mostly compared to Tekken and not Soul Calibur (cause we got blood & violence, pets and special moves back)

japanese version still has red sparks in all places american version has blood Wink
Wow, some of those look great. Thanks for the link! I belatedly posted about this on the site and credited you with the news. Thumbs Up

Damn, I must admit beheading looks awesome! I haven't done that since Barbarian (pre-SF2 fighter).
If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
What console will this be on? And I saw someone mention SS6 ... When did this come out and for what console?
