Yatagarasu - Indie fighting game
« on: January 19, 2013, 02:22:43 AM »
I heard about this in GameFAQs. It caught my attention because former SNK employees helped work on this.

I'd absolutely try this if it was made available for a home console. Visually it seems to be the closest to kof xii/xiii in quality thus far.

According to the article, it had a PC release prior to this release.

Of course, that was in Japan only...

What's stopping you from trying it on PC?

The effort really. No one to play against to boot.

Real talk, this game is dope, but very hard to get/purchase... Most sites I've seen don't even sell it anymore...

Saw an interview via youtube and the guy representing the game said that they where looking into releasing it on steam, hopefully availability won't be an issue for long.

I also saw one of the youtube videos,that you can download the game from the official site,but it's not in english and I don't even know how to get it to run,since the file is also not in english. :(

Look at what I found!

YATAGARASU 4 gameplay matches

Gameplay looks good. Graphics look great! Character design... not so much. The roster seems very uninspired. As someone on Youtube put it in a comment:

Quote
2 shotos, 2 hibikis, 1 feilong, 1 angel, 1 futurist mutant zangief

And one Dudley (is what he forgot).

I quite like "Dudley" though I agree that they're all uninspired. The shotos and the hibikis don't even look like they have that much of a variation in attacks.

Also, Crow looks like Adelheid.

One of the Hibikis had a Ukyo vibe going on, or at least that's what it felt like to me

Actually, now that I look at him closely, Jet feels a bit like Shen Woo too.

^Yup. I also thought he was a Dudley-Shen hybrid.

But since I was sticking to comparing him to one character, I picked Dudley.

He's more Dudley all together
