Scenes From Samurai Shodown Sen

So Samurai Shodown Sen is coming to the North American Xbox 360 this spring, courtesy of XSEED. What's that going to look like?

Pretty lifeless, if you ask me. It's a problem that crops up whenever classic 2D characters are rendered in 3D, though some companies have done a much better job of it recently. I'm sure the gameplay will be nice and smooth, but some of the character is definitely lost here.

I'd probably pick this up if it makes its way to a system I actually own. SNK's later 3D fighters aren't without a certain charm.

Though I'm sure it's unintentional, both Maximum Impact games have a very "late '90s arcade" quality that I find appealing. It's the same reason I love Battle Fantasia so much...though that game has considerably more polish.
