This looks to be one of the very few games by Capcom in recent memories that actually looks fun to play (then again RE6 looked fun...until you played it). I really think this will go over well commercially because it has an older feel to it than most modern games put forth. If its really as challenging as they say, then I don't see why it won't do good...especially for the vita which needs all the help it can get.
Don't worry about it. It's just a crutch...

It's not a Capcom developed game. It's a port of a PC title released a few years back developed by an Australian indie team called Hitbox. So you can play it right now but I don't know if there's more in this port or if it's just the same.

Either way, I can tell you from my limited experience with it that it is fun and it is cool. I think the Vita is the perfect place for it and I'll be buying it day one as well.
Someday, I hope to be from the future.

There are supposed to be over 100 new levels as free dlc (and hopefully some future character dlc too) so thats one pretty good reason to get this.

Anybody here play the PC version? How difficult is it? I'm not particularly good at this kind of game but it looks fun. If I'm going to hit a wall soon after I start the game, I should hold off on buying it.

I know it's a different kind of game, but I did manage to platinum Guacamelee if that helps.

It looks pretty hard. It's more build on speed and reflexes than Guacamelee. Try, die, re-try.

I tried the demo. It's definitely not my kind of game. Either I'm terrible or the controls are unresponsive. Or a combo of both!

I think there is a learning curve to the game. Partially because there is a sort of wind-up for the jumps so it doesn't feel as instant as some other games, and partially because the framerate doesn't feel optimized on the Vita.

That said, I think that if you stick with it, and take the time to understand and utilize the nuances of the game as well as the alternate characters (blue = balanced, red = fast, purple = 3 jump/dash, green = strong), there is a lot of fun to be had, especially if you really appreciate mobility in video games.
Someday, I hope to be from the future.
