Ninety Nine Nights II was revealed in 2008 and we’ve barely seen bloody trace of it since. Fortunately, however, the game has just been given a North American release date, and with it we’ve finally gotten a debut trailer and some decent screens for our trouble.
The game will be hitting Western shelves this Spring, and the video above demonstrates that the poor man’s Dynasty Warriors is keeping up the tradition of bad voice acting, flamboyant clothing and over-the-top special moves. If they can make the gameplay balanced and fun this time, then we may have a worthy contender in the “one man army” genre.
I certainly hope so. I love a good brawler and was disappointed with the first N3. I wish to be impressed this time.
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it is to publish Microsoft’s all-action epic, Ninety-Nine Nights II, for Xbox 360 across Europe.
Set on a ravaged world, Ninety-Nine Nights II invites the player to take on all comers in a series of spectacular battles. Players can enjoy the story from five different perspectives – including humans, elves and Goblins – and are pitted against wave after wave of adversaries in the ultimate ‘last man standing’ free-for-all. Each of the species is given a specific back-story which unfolds as the game progresses, while the various races also bring unique skills and abilities to the battle field.
At its heart, Ninety-Nine Nights II is a vast combat title, with hundreds of enemy creatures on screen simultaneously. As the camera picks over the action, the player can use a wealth of easily-effected combo attacks to carve a path through the enemy, and also use whatever weapons and items come to hand. At the end of each skirmish, players will then face a ‘Titanic Boss Battle’ against the champion of their current adversary, with players forced to move quickly and locate the well hidden weak spots of these seemingly unstoppable behemoths.
Ninety-Nine Nights II also has a stunning two-player co-op online mode, wherein players team up against the oncoming hordes, working together to expand their combo range to take out more enemy assailants at once. This two-player mode features online ranking boards detailing the most effective pairings across the globe.
