    Reminds me of Onimusha.
    Looks pretty interesting.

    In my mencave ;)
    Me 2, the sounds of the swords and music sound like what I hear in Onimusha.
    Onimusha is great series off games, to bad Capcom don't make them any more :(

    Sweet, seems like this generation's missing some fun hack'n'slashes. Always wondered where Onimusha went.

    I was going to say with the logo and everything, it looked like some kind of spiritual successor to Onimusha.

    Heads up the demo for this should be up today on psn at some point. If you have a JPN account it's already up and has full English.

    PS_Messages_20160501_091503.jpg It's really good and while it has the souls level up system that's really the only similarity. The combat is very good and I really like the stance system.
    Will definitely be picking it up at launch.
    Also this demo only lasts until May 6th and if you finish it you unlock DLC download for the full game.

    The game hud reminds me so much of the Souls series. The gameplay is also extremely similar, from the looks of things.

    But to me, if they're going for a Japanese Souls-esque game, it better be challenging. Though the combat really reminds me of stuff like Hitman and The Wither

    The leveling and a few other aspects are the same but at the end of the day it reminds me of a more advanced Onimusha than anything souls related. I don't really think they were going for a souls type game in its core design since the game was announced before Miyazaki even got placed on the team making what would later become demon souls in 2004.

    Oh also you die in 2-3 good hits. gg no re
