A veritable plethora of videos for Koei's first Wii effort, Samurai Warriors Katana, are now available on your Internet, and all I have to say right now is ... get them off my Internet. Now you know me, I love Koei with all my heart, but this is ... no.
The above video does not look like a fun game to play, and I am frightened by the idea that there are people who think this looks like a fun game to play. Someone had to really believe the above was good enough to release to the bloody public. That's the kind of thing you hide.
I was starting to claw back a little hope for Katana, but this is one on-rails shooter/awful waggle horseriding game I am going to have to pass up. Needs more Kessen, I think. The game has been announced as a January 15th US release. Again Koei, you might want to keep that quiet.
