-Wii and PSP again!? Goddammit! It's 2012! How long is it gonna take to make an HD Kamen Rider game?
-I see no Showa Riders on any of those scans. This has me worried. If they take away the Showa Riders from Fourze instead of completing the list, then that's a huge slap in the face. And if they do that, it would further prove my point that all of the Showa Riders should've been included in CH Fourze since it celebrated Kamen Rider's 40th Anniversary.
-Graphics look a little bit better than its predecessor, Fourze.
-They better put ALL new stages and music in this game and not recycle the same ones from the previous games. I'm tired of seeing those stages!
Now about the leveling up system, freerun system and Rider Arts, does this mean Climax Heroes is using a new engine? I hope so because that would make up for all the other disappointing things I've mentioned. If not, might as well change its name to Kamen Rider Not-So-Super Rehash Heroes.
But if it is a new engine, why use the same platforms that the previous Climax Heroes games were on (Wii and PSP)?
We're in 2012 but it doesn't mean anything, the PSP is still the strongest in Japan (stronger than the Vita anyways) and the Wii has a huge installed base. Develop for both platforms is easy at this stage, you just have to program new chars and shove them into the game engine (which, being realistic, won't be a "new" engine, just a tweaked one like in CHOOO).
Let's just remember that the series started on the PS2, Wii and PSP are also the best option cuz you don't even need remake your chars. An HD version would require an complete revamp of... well... freaking everything. And Bandai-Namco doing that... I don't think so. Moreover, Japanese people don't have this American mentality that HD > SD. There are quite a few games coming out for the PS3 in Japan that aren't full HD.
The Showa Riders being out of the game is not that big of a deal, the Showa that they put in CHF were only Skins with other Heisei Riders movesets and IMHO I found them really boring to play (except Amazon, he was badass). If it is to get the same half-assed Showa Riders from last time I completely agree with the removal, it's mostly a Heisei Rider game after all.
Don't get your hopes really high for an innovative Climax Heroes, it looks like it will be a new breeze for the franchise, just like Climax Heroes OOO was but don't get you're hopes high. I will get the game and gladly play it. I love this franchise anyways xD
