They have a explanation to her powers or its just pure randomness? XD

Anyway, it seems to be very fun to play with her.

Well she is super awesome, and she comes from the future.    ;D

New trailer over 7 minutes in length!

D3 Publisher America is probably paranoid due to BSS/BZS sales in the west,  but Z Kagura is clearly levels above the previous ones in the series, including the controls and gameplay depth as well.   Maybe they are waiting for fans to request this before considering localizing it.

Well there is their email

support@d3p.us

They should at least release it digitally, there is low risk in that compared to physical manufacturing/packaging/distribution.   The digital market is getting better and making more sales for publishers without having to spend as much in the retail market, especially for PSN Store which is internationally popular.   And Japanese games naturally sell more on PS3 than other consoles.   They chose Xbox360
back then because it's easier to program for, but considering they were able to port this to PS3,  this version is definitely more
charismatic among the PS3 crowd since Japanese gaming is more popular on Japanese console than it is on a western console.

I mean it's not like D3 has much else heavy hitters to localize these days.   And it's not like they have any competition. 
DmC has flopped.  Bayonetta abandoned the Sony crowd for Nintendo.  Metal Gear Rising is old news. and  Lollipop Chainsaw was too short and simplistic.   ;D

These games are so dumb.

There's a guy on another board I go to who legit thinks the first PS2 game is one of the greatest video games ever created.  As in, compared to other games on story and gameplay mechanics and not just its ability to throw tits at you.

Hentai game with zombies.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow sucks
DmC: Devil may Cry is the equivalent of trailer trash
"badly designed fat left on Lords of Shadow 2's bones."

That means you will like this one   ;D since unlike its predecessors, it isn't all looks.  Z Kagura rebuilt its action gameplay from scratch
with better gameplay, better graphics, and better action mechanics (and before you criticize the QTE events, remember that the most popular franchises used QTEs, including God of War, Shenmue, Bayonetta, Lollipop Chainsaw, etc.)   

Comparing BSS/Vortex to Z Kagura gameplay is like night and day.

Sure, it has immature marketing:

PS3「お姉チャンバラZ ~カグラ~ With NoNoNo!」を用いた実験ドキュメンタリー映像 (3rd Promotion Video)Z表現有り

but every X360 importer that played it agree that this action game rivals the best out there, while offering more unique playable character variety as well.    Ninja Gaiden fans may demand more from the a.i., but DMC fans should totally feel at home with this gameplay.    Plus there are rewarding timing based combos that require more skill than the average gamer. 

The only weak point of this is that its splitscreen co-op support is not as good as BSS, but other than that, this is a huge step forward for the series.    And graphics fanatics should appreciate this looks 2 times better than BSS.   You can't generate these kind of graphics on PS2.   And this has more blood, gore and enemy count than most games out there, making the attacks feel more powerful and sharp, with plenty of targets to slaughter to show off your expanding arsenal.    ;D

Overall, Onechanbara Z Kagura should deserve more respect from the action crowd.   An action game can be awesome and sexy at the sametime.

And people that play action games for story play them for the wrong reason, since the NES days action games were always about the gameplay and action itself, not the drama inbetween the action.    Onechanbara Z Kagura has a story, but people are really too dependant and critical on storytelling these days, which really does nothing for replay value and overall gameplay entertainment. 
 Z Kagura story isn't really meant to take seriously anyway, a action game can be fun without needing some dramatic story.  At the end of the day, story isn't going to get people to keep playing something.

found a new cool wallpaper (the colors are very vibrant. Is this on the PSN Japan store?  Wonder if its free to download)

Someone said that the PS3 version has updated models (I did notice a slight improvement from the screens and videos they released, of course not a huge difference but an improvement.)

Someone posted an offscreen photo while they played today

Guess we'll get more impressions and details in the coming days.   
Oh yea the digital version will be on Japan PSN Store sometime around November 21.
