My time was spent deeply immersed in the Sengoku period. Yesterday I decided to play a little as Saika Magoichi. He is the gunman of the bunch and from what it seems a Harrison Ford / Luis Figo look alike:

His musou mode started nicely with a great cinema. It was really entertaining. After which I proceeded to hand Oda Nobunaga his ass, numerous times. The best and coolest thing about his story is that you have to protect monks. Which let me tell you isn't too easy.

They are these dudes with what appears to be paper bags over their heads. At the moment I can't find pictures but soon they will be abundant. I can tell this game is relatively popular in Japan, one by the sales and also by the numbers websites devoted too it.

I also discovered another cool thing about the endless castle modes. One gives you an hour to clear a floor and the more difficult version gives you only 30 minutes, with much smaller floors.

More good news for Koei it seems and Winning Eleven is a no brainer. That game sells boku amounts everywhere else but here in the states. I'm torn between getting the American one of the Japanese International version. From what I hear the International one is better. It doesn't matter now, I'm broke.
