I played some of this at a friend's yesterday, though I'm almost at the end of my own install :ahh:
I tried out 8 gates guy and his awakening is insane. The camera is literally too slow to follow even his side-to-side dashes. I would complain that it feels like the on-screen visual effects are too much, but this is totally how this character should feel.
I was sick this weekend, but I did at least play a few battles in free mode to remember how to play since I was apparently rusty as Fuuuuck, and got through the Madara Vs. Hashirama opening. Hoping to be able to play more devotedly this week.
Also, can we all please take a moment to appreciate how fucking utterly spectacular the opening for this game is, because dear GODS I cannot stop watching it.
