A new commercial has just been released for the upcoming 2D fighter, Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan Kansei. The game is exclusive to the PSP, and features over 30 playable characters rendered in brushwork-style cel shading.
The graphic style will remind you of the one employed by Okami, which actually looks grimy and rough on a small screen, as the thick borders look uneven compared to the small textures used for color and shading. Of course, videos on youtube and the PC usually don’t provide an accurate representation of what a game looks like on a device’s actual screen, so let’s hope that it looks better on a real PSP screen.
Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan Kansei, which is a follow up to 2011’s Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan Saisen, is scheduled for release in Japan on August 30. There are currently no announced plans to release it for other territories.
