Q.E.D.



The mid boss art looks so... photoshoped? The color seems brighter and size seem larger than the usual sprite size...

Prediction succeed!

She's supposed to be a headless youkai thing. Which is why her neck is covered up. And she throws heads at you. Not sure if that makes it better, but that's what she is.

So we have a mermaid, maybe a dullahan, and maybe a werewolf. These are all western monsters, and that might be the trend of the game.

Final boss is Remilia guys, you heard it here first.

For the record, her title is "Loup-Garou of the Bamboo Forest" and her name has the character for "wolf" in it. So she's a werewolf.

Her profile:

種族:狼女
  能力:満月の夜に狼に変身する程度の能力
  落ち着いた性格の持ち主。
  それは狼に変身しても冷静さを失わなかった。
  迷いの竹林には月の住人が屋敷を構えている為か、
  月に関係する妖怪が多くいるようだ。
  彼女もその一人である。
  ちなみに、外の世界では絶滅したニホンオオカミ女である。
  満月の日は毛深くなるのが気になるようで
  肌をかくし、ひっそりと暮していた。
  それが、何故か今回は暴れていたのが霊夢の耳に届き、
  退治された。

Google translate says she's a were-canis lupus hodophilax, the extinct Japanese wolf.

Japan has a long history of mermaid stories. And headless women. Only the werewolf seems particularly Western.

It should be noted that the character titles and song names combine Japanese and English terms for the monsters. Wakasagihime's title uses "ningyo," and her music uses "mermaid." Sekibanki's title uses "rokurokubi," and her music uses "dullahan."

Kagerou's title uses "loup-garou," and I haven't seen her song name, but I'd assume it uses "werewolf" if it follows the same pattern.

EDIT: Yep, called it, "Lonely Werewolf."

I'm rather disappointed at this. All the fighting games had previously assiduously avoided this sort of fighting game trope, and it's unfortunate that they decided to start with this sort of thing now.

Nitori's gadget copter rocks, though.

EDIT: Goddamnit, now I have the Inspector Gadget theme in my head. It'll be forever associated with Nitori in my mind from now on.

NWS? Pretty sure the white there is just her shirt. Disappointing that they have such gratuitous bouncing, yes, but I'm pretty sure that's not meant to be a chest window, if that's what you're getting at.

The helicopter is indeed great, though.

Meh, just playing it safe.

Anyways, you guys remember how one of Remilia's palettes looked like Flandre's, so you could pretend she was playable?



Well you can do that again. Also, Mamizou's stage is depressingly cameo-free.

I've only seen a single play through on the campaign so I don't know how it works in stage select, but from I saw there was a day version of her stage where all the background tanuki were pretending to be other people (a random assortment from all stages).

I'm not gonna bother looking up a specific example, but western media is just as guilty as anime. And screw the haters, I'm still using Byakuren first because her unique trait is still badass.

Got my rear end kicked by HM's final boss' third spell on Lunatic (though in hindsight I figured out a way to beat it), so I dropped down to Normal and... well, let's say this game takes after SWR in difficulty. I just mashed the gently caress out of the buttons and got a 1cc, no deaths.

Most of the new arranges are pretty mediocre IMO.

I'm liking the music. No idea what's up with the mechanics though. The game seems to be throwing bomb pieces all over the place, making fake shadow bullets and life pieces seem really rare. Something to do with points I think?

Miko has a badass cape she stole from Utsuho's closet or something, so she's clearly better than Byakuren.
