Joystiq has reported on the latest EGM magazine covering Ninja Gaiden 2’s over-the-top violence. It seems as though Team Ninja has added plenty of incentive for dismemberment, as removed limbs will stay on screen.
From the article:
‘Additionally, there will be ‘obliteration techniques’ that the player can activate by pressing Y after removing a limb. The details are unknown except that the camera zooms in, but we can only assume that entails protagonist Ryu totally flipping out and killing people in some stylish fashion. The techniques vary based on what weapon you’re using and what body part you just removed.’
