I played this game today, too. Didn’t even realize it was a new game at first, but the Samurai Spirits cab right next to 3S suddenly looked different, like the super bars were different, and I was like “wtf”. Did a double take, and sure enough, it was Tenka.
There were 3 or 4 people waiting to play on each side and only one machine so I played just one game, with Charolette. The groove descriptions are all in Japanese explained with a bunch of fighting game jargon I don’t understand yet, so I just picked the groove with the cool kanji =) Turns out it was the K-Groove one.
I almost got a round on my opponent, who had a 7 win streak whoring out the arrow-shooting girl on all of us scrubs that hadn’t played Samurai Spirits in years, or ever. I almost made a comeback after I found some move with Charolette’s sword that goes full screen and can punish those damn arrows!
I don’t know anything about Samurai Spirits or how the game works, so I leave all impressions and future commentary up to beelzebub :tup:
BTW, heard it through the grapevine but this game will almost definitely be a featured game at SBO next year, so interested parties might want to pick it up when it comes out on PS2.
