That’s my thoughts too.
Agree agree agree!
Hopefully more than just a paycheque!
They have started to show character portraits: Protagonist are called Ell Blue and Brazel, Athena ripoff is called Kaori Kuraki (lol Japanese? curious) and the sort-of-Freeman like is called Arashi, Japanese name again (Arashi is “storm”). I guess they want to keep the game “Japanese” in order to get more attention on the Otaku crew or something like that?
Much higher quality (direct capture I believe) gameplay : http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMzI1NzE2NjA0.html
Wow! looks much better that i supposed, there is a way for embed Youku videos?
EDIT: Forget it, done.
So their …Chinese Twitter thing has been updating, with a few screens and art of the characters.
Honestly, the game is looking good. And I absolutely don’t get the complaint that it’s a ripoff of KoF. I don’t see anything even remotely similar to-
I noticed in the videos how Ell Blue was speaking English.
and of course he punches you and stuff
At least he’s not as white?
I hope I get to play this when I move to China. There is something I love about rip-off games and this looks like it might actually be good.
Would you guys mind taking a look at my thread (linked in sig)? You could be helping me out a great deal. Thanks.
K’ fro is played out son.
It looks alright gameplay wise. I don’t like the art style however.
Ripoff aside (that’s China for you: blew their wad as far as originality when they created Kung Fu) I think I like this.
With reverse image searching, I’ve managed to find every direct capture screenshot they’ve put out at a higher res.
I still think it looks good.
Also, thanks to whoever edited the title.
I should try to get a better OP going, or someone could make a better thread once a new video comes out.
Could they at least made Karou’s hair a different shade? She’s nearly identical to Athena.
The website has updated featuring what I’m guessing is a story synapse and some system info.
Anyone able to read Chinese?
Translation by google lol
In 20xx, a meteorite (later known as Messiah) hit Peru in South America, the impact energy in the former Soviet Union, comparable to Tunguska explosion, so that in subsequent days, the number of miles around the region the “White Nights” phenomenon. Fortunately, the impact occurred in the jungle, on the surrounding human society did not cause devastating damage. This event is known as the "first impact."
After the impact of United Nations organizations, national experts on the scene for as long as several years of study, between the biological contamination.Subsequently, the impact of on-site radius of one hundred miles of land has been tight blockade and isolation, to martial law troops in the country of Peru, between the tight control of all information.
Biological contamination from the Messiah to bring, and was later named the EVA is a cross between between life and non-living body of new material. In the excavation site of impact, the research team found a similar emerald crystals, in a subsequent study it to discover the vital signs. It is in its research and experimentation when the research team members all had different degrees of variation of vital signs, then, have died. The study found that before the discovery of the crystal size is less than the virus is a combination of life forms, and impose the dormant state, in the study group for an experiment of its time, the activation of its biological activity. This virus is also small compared with the material into the body without the knowledge of researchers, and binding to the cell, researchers led physical abnormalities. This event was later called "the first baptism."
The establishment of ERD: the first impact, the countries expert group composed of the characteristics of EVA have a certain understanding. For this risk, but may be the world’s new energy alternatives of the future new substances, the Western countries hope their research and development. After consultation of various forces, decided to set up a common organization (ERD) to carry out research and development of the EVA, and strict control of its resources. The organization’s senior by a 13-person committee to make decisions, every two years by the Committee members to pick out one specific organization responsible for the actual operation, to the Commission.
Maple Family: Maple comes from an ancient Chinese family, the family thousands of years active in the Chinese history behind the stage, they bear the mission no one can know. Now Feng represents the rise of Asia’s emerging economic and political power. Resources in the development of EVA was formed out of a list of ERD than maple unacceptable, the family can not allow ourselves to lose in this new era of leadership in Asia. In one incident, Feng spent all of the financial and material resources to find ways to come into contact with the EVA.
Doo Hyun King Contest: spend a lot of the maple family, financial and material resources to study the EVA, when a group calling itself “SHINE” the sudden appearance of a small company, providing a large amount of research data and maple high-quality EVA. In SHINE with the help of the EVA study of Feng quickly catching up ERD. Study found that when the body is reached and EVA symbiosis symbiotic state, the symbiont itself determines the energy of the impact of their EVA, in a symbiosis can greatly stimulate the emotions / energy the next outbreak of an opportunity, EVA will be with a total of Health and body resonate, to strengthen the energy characteristics of symbiosis, that is awakening. Selection of a lot of good in the pursuit of “awakening” and the case of maple with the idea of holding a world fighting competition. ERD also noted Feng also mastered the secret of awakening, began monitoring the competition.
The developers could have tried a little harder not to make it -so- KOF…
but honest? I like the art style and character design. It has this trendy sort of vibe that’s neither too ‘anime’ nor too ‘western’, which is a pretty damn hard balance to achieve. Or am I just spouting bullcrap again?
Is it me or has anyone noticed they literally ripped the S4 League emblem for their timer?
I find it hilarious actually but oh well, it’s China…what can ya do? Anyway, putting that and the ripoff aspect aside, the game looks okay but I would rather like to see it more in action before I give a more definite opinion about this.
